Savoring in the Face of Disaster

I am privileged to create a home on the web for an extraordinary mix of about 400 super-duper smart, compassionate, engaged, insightful women, a number of whom live in the South, where tornadoes ripped lives apart last week. Nay Nay is one of those amazing women. She lives in Alabama. She volunteers as a set […]

We Can be the Greg Mortenson’s of the World

This post is not about whether Greg lied – this is about how I interact with stories of service. About what I am doing or not doing. This morning I couldn’t sleep. I was thinking about Greg Mortenson. Under-attack hero. 3 Cups of Tea spilled. I thought how much I want heroes out in the […]

Shrink Your Steepest Hill

A month and three days ago, Beth’s son was murdered. Beth belongs to my Savor & Serve community. She attended one of my retreats last year. Over the years, I’ve gotten to share her heart’s desires, to walk with her as she makes a life she loves – and even to know her son a […]

Despair You are So Busted

Listening to NPR this morning, a doctor in Afghanistan said the entire country is very depressed. Caught between our drones and the Taliban, with no justice, no hope, no normalcy, despair is killing them. Driving home, I thought about how despair and depression threatens so many of us these days – even though we are […]

Everything is Conspiring on Your Behalf – Everything

Everything in my life is conspiring to teach me to savor & serve. I wonder if that is true for you, too? From the messages on the Yogi tea tags to every book I pick up to the interviews I did yesterday for Teach Now with Michael Jones, Brian Andreas and Lee-Ann Regan. It feels […]
