My gal Shannon - yes, the Mom Prom one who halls around the hottest guys in the back seat of her car!
- What have you OVERCOME? Fear. Of commitment (so maybe I shouldn’t get married?), of not being a good mother (so maybe I shouldn’t have a baby?), of starting my own business (so maybe I shouldn’t start a business?), of being myself (so maybe I shouldn’t share parts of me that people might not like?).
- What was your turning point?
I married an amazing man (he’s just right for me). I gave birth to a baby girl who is about to turn 13. I started nwaMotherlode.com. I turned 40. In other words, I was fearful about so many of the things that I felt led to do but did them anyway. And I'm so, so glad I did. (Now the 40 part just happened whether I liked it or not).

- Quote you live by - “Scream and leap.” - My husband. “I love you, mom” - My daughter. “Just ask. What are they gonna do, take away your birthday?” - My business partner. “Be still and know that I am God.” God via the Bible.
