THANK YOU so much for ALL the love and continued support on this new adventure! The emails behind the scenes and notes and messages have been incredibly precious and I can't wait to see where this community goes in the upcoming weeks and years! 

Writing and sharing my heart behind this was truly one of the most vulnerable and heart opening things I have ever written about in nearly 10 years of blogging. I know that sounds surprising because I have shared so much here on the blog over the course of a decade including my journey of fighting for my life, but this was a different level of opening up to one of the most vulnerable parts of my life. A deepest desire longing that has not come true yet. Thank you so much for all of the support, love, and encouragement that you have given. 

If you didn't get a chance to read the blog post explaining more you can find it HERE
And, if you are single and in your thirties, forties, or fifties I hope that you will connect with others HERE

Since I have shared about Thirty-Four Five, I have also been receiving a lot of questions on speaking requests. I am truly honored and humbled by these questions. 

Over the last 20 years I have had the unique opportunity to speak across the country and around the world at high schools, universities, churches, women's retreats, bible studies, local community groups, medical conferences, hospitals, libraries, and additional venues on a variety of topics. 

My love for speaking and authenticity grew as she spent nearly a decade fighting Advanced Late Stage Lyme Disease and Cancer among other extreme health issues. Fighting for my life gave me a unique perspective on the beauty that is found in the ordinary and everyday moments and that is reflected vulnerably and humbly in each of my speaking opportunities. As I have healed I have taken the lessons she learned into this beautiful new life. 

At the heart of it all I share the story of finding hope when I was told to have none, and encouragement for living a beautiful, creative, inspired, and intentional life, no matter the season.

If you are interested in having me speak at your event, you can fill out a speaking request form HERE.

As this Christmas season approaches, I am well aware that it can be a very difficult & painful season to face while fighting a serious illness like Lyme Disease. This devotional is the first & only Lyme patient specific book for the Advent & Christmas season & contains a daily reflection & song for each day of the Christmas holiday (from the last week of November through the first week of January). It can be used as a simple encouragement to the weary heart or as a guided devotional study.

If are not a Lyme patient, but know a Lymie this would be a great gift to give them! If you don't know a Lymie & would still like to help I have a list of Lyme patients who want to purchase this book but due to treatment costs can't afford to do so. 
If you would like to bless them anonymously please contact me or leave a comment & I will message instructions!! You can also purchase a book and donate it to your doctors office, local hospital, local library, etc. 

You can purchase the book HERE!

Thank you for stopping by today friends! I hope you have a wonderful Friday and weekend!
