Wonder. Awe. Inspiration.

Being by open water imparts calm and allows my awareness to expand.

The soft green haze of tender young leaves in the spring inspires delight and brings the reassurance of new life.

A clear blue sky lifts the spirits and diminishes any worry.

Seeing a fiery sunset, all orange, pink, and crimson makes me feel exultant, triumphant.

The Adoration Chapel, where I sit before the King of Kings restores, stills, refreshes.

Wonders. Miracles. Reminders.

They nourish us, fill us, lift us; remind us that we are Creature, amidst Creation. The Creator, great artist that He is, has left signs, love letters for us to find. He speaks to our hearts through the works of His hands.

Women are integrated – mind, body, and soul all together – and so our environment effects our internal being. For many of us, life is full of activity, noise, expectations, obligations.  I really believe that even extroverted urban-dwellers need moments of quiet and awe; invitations to reconnect with the Almighty; opportunities for contemplation.

For me, those moments, invitations, and opportunities seem to come from natural beauty: trees, lakes, rivers, pebbles, snails, clouds. Where do you find your love letters?

About



What is a woman? What does it mean to be feminine? There is softness and hardness, compassion and ferocity. There is contentment and adventure, freedom and service. We're conundrums, especially to ourselves, but we all, in some way, possess beauty, creativity, intuition and love. We were made for love, and we are loved, cellulite and all. Here we aim to show every woman the richness and beauty of her own femininity and explore current issues relating to women in our world. We also wish to share our own experiences - exploring the joys and challenges of stay-at-home moms and single professionals and everyone in between. Welcome! So glad you're here!
