What we do with obstacles is directly determined by our mental attitude. Most of our obstacles are mental in character.

“Ah,” you may object, “mine are not mental, mine are real.”

Perhaps so, but your attitude towards them is mental. What you think about your obstacles largely determines what you do about them.
— Norman Vincent Peale, The Power of Positive Thinking

In a word…inspiration!


Our goal is to inspire people to reach their highest potential – because inspired people are positive, proactive people. Through blogs, e-mail campaigns, books, plays and films, we create and share meaningful stories that encourage and empower individuals to live with passion and purpose…and the patience to go through the process :)

Project Update



Pink Gazelle Productions Inc is aiming to stage the Saviour play, written by Maryanne Pope, in Calgary, Alberta for 3 special fundraising performances in support of the John Petropoulos Memorial Fund. More info here.

Stay tuned for details!

Being a parent is an enormous responsibility – and not for everyone. As we explored in our documentary, Whatever Floats Your Boat…Perspectives on Motherhood, the decision ‘to be or not to be…a mom’ is just that: a decision not a given.

Here’s an excellent website devoted to the topic of being child-free:

  • Your Feedback

    “Just finished reading A Widow's Awakening. Between the tears and smiles, I am overwhelmed. My last year has been an exercise in my own grief - the deaths of my marriage and my mother within hours. There is a certain kind of hurt that cannot be explained, only felt on the cellular. Your story was as close to capturing that hollow ache as anything I've read.” - Elizabeth, AB
