Soap Making for Homeschool Moms and DIYers

Soap Making for Homeschool Moms and DIYers

I've been a teacher for a long time--20 years, in fact. I taught from K-12 in 3 subject areas and then moved to higher Education to teach English and train teachers in elementary schools and the Master's program at the University. I loved being a teacher. I still teach privately now, so I haven't let go all together. There is always this itch, though.

On Perimenopause

Yep, I'm talking about it.  We're back to another 40 Lessons over 40 blog where I share all of the things I have learned since hitting my forties.

The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod

We are loving our book chats this year in our Facebook Group. I'm so glad I decided to take the plunge and try a whole new format this year in the group, one where we can focus on a theme each month and dive into some amazing content, chat about a book, learn from experts and so much more. This month we are discussing The Miracle Morning by Hal Elrod.  I decided to feature this as our first book because I happen to love what his morning routine suggestions have done for my own morning--and whole day going forward, for...

A Vision Board Workshop

Let's chat today about how vision boards have helped me both in life and in business. I felt this should be a part of the 40 over 40 series because once I began implementing the practice of making vision boards every year, things changed.  First of all, what is a vision board? Well, you're about to find out. I decided today's blog would be a video post of a workshop I offered for my facebook group. Our  theme this January in the group is "Embrace the Morning" and vision boards are. a big part of that. We're setting goals and...
