Looking for clarity and simplicity? Success and joy requires connection – first with ourselves, then with others. If that makes sense to you, you’re in the right place.
Everyone I meet is searching for something; their soul mate, the perfect job, or help navigating limitless options and a society that calls good evil and evil good. Folks seek answers, secrets, and the 7 best ways to do anything.
I help capable, committed people integrate, authenticate, and simplify every part life to enhance confidence, clarity, and achievement — while glorifying God. Every disconnect or division between one part of your life and another is disturbing and damages your ability to attain goals and enjoy the blessings of life with Christ.
The Holy Spirit is your soul mate. The perfect job (or spouse) doesn’t exist. God is good and anyone who says He isn’t needs to be wished “Good day” as you shake the dust off your boots (or flip flops) and move on. Most problems are people-problems. There are no perfect answers to problems we cause. Socialistic utopias don’t exist and everyone going viral would be a pandemic, not fame.
You are special because you’re you. The hard part is figuring out what to do with your uniqueness.
Think of three wildly successful people. Are they all superstars in the same way? Nope. Are they all rich and famous? I hope not. Success is the quality of your journey with Jesus Christ and fellow travelers, not the size of your bank account or number of Facebook fans.
God doesn’t care about those things. Seriously, pour a cup of hot coffee or glass of sweet tea and ponder that a moment.
God cares about relationship. Most importantly, the one He has with you. If you’re confused about the next step in your search for answers or direction, begin there. If you’re still confused, contact me. Maybe I can help.
Everything that Matters is Personal
Do the folks you speak to listen? Successfully working with family, colleagues, clients (and horses) requires being other-directed, offering something of value, and creating personal connection. First, they have to know you’re there, that you’re trustworthy, and believe you care. Communication must be clear, concise, and simple.

From Amazon footnote to best-selling author
In late 2016, after seven years of ministry, I was an Amazon footnote. Today I’m a multiple best-selling author and World and National Champion horse trainer and breeder. Before my horse career, I was a business consultant and motivational speaker. In other words, I’m a serial entrepreneur. That means I know how to set and achieve goals. My purpose is to help you so you can help others. That’s the purpose of life. Some call it the Golden Rule. As a Christian writer, I know where it’s found in the Bible (Matthew 7:12).
What do horses have to do with God, success, and relationship?
Unless you have one in the barn, horses are metaphor. They’re as simple and silly as three year old children but wise as Yoda. My husband nicknamed me the analogy queen because I have an illustration (analogy?) for everything. The book of Ecclesiastes is analogy. Or is it metaphor? Do you confuse illustration, metaphor, analogy, and allegory? I do. But let’s not sweat the small stuff. Analogy helps us grasp concepts without challenging our egos.
Aside from size, what’s the biggest difference between horses and people? Horses don’t lie to themselves or anyone else. They’re far more honest than we, but they also – Love. Mourn. Scheme. Frustrate. Delight. Pout. Rebel. Negotiate. Delight. Give up. Seek connection. And fear.
Fear is a biggie, if not the biggest biggie, for people and horses.
My work is about success, communication, love, and faith. Facing and overcoming fears, realizing dreams, and helping others make their journey one of daily joy.
