Gentleness is everywhere in daily life, a sign that faith rules through ordinary things; through cooking and small talk, through story-telling, making love, fishing, tending animals and sweet corn and flowers, through sports, music and books, raising kids…all the places where the gravy soaks in and grace shines through. — Garrison Keillor

In a word…inspiration!


Our goal is to inspire people to reach their highest potential – because inspired people are positive, proactive people.

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

    “Thank you for sharing your story and incredible journey in A Widow's Awakening. What struck me in particular was your search for spiritual answers to relieve the blinding emotional pain. It was great comfort to see you put into words some of the exact emotions I felt when I tragically lost my dad this year. I can see now that everyone does find their way to heal those very raw wounds in the process of grieving.” - Sandra, Calgary, AB
