It’s ALMOST TIME Fiercely Speaking

Trauma and abuse can entomb your persona, kill your dreams, and silence your voice. What if you found out you weren’t the only one who has survived traumatic circumstances? How would you feel discovering keys to successfully fight your way through the aftermath of abuse?

In Fiercely Speaking, the voices of 14 authors escort you through a journey of deep wounds and betrayals that yield to healing, hope, and a reclamation of their voices to speak their truths.  Now is the time to confront the ghosts of your past, establish a blueprint for your better life, and capture your voice with ferocity.

Marble Jar Friends

Brené Brown says “people have to earn the right to hear your story.” Meaning, people need to show up for you, care what happens to you and how you feel, and will value your connection enough to keep things to themselves.


In her book, Daring Greatly, Brené talks about Marble Jar friends.  She tells a great story of her daughter’s teacher who kept a jar in the classroom and each time the class did something positive a marble went in the jar. When the class was negative marbles were removed.


We can use the idea of the Marble Jar to help define who to trust and to what limits.


We have the ability to determine how marbles are earned and taken away. We also have the ability to set up our marble jars to fit our needs.


After this weekend my marble jar(s) look very different!
