Finding Purpose in our Lives.

As human beings we like to create things and share our unique gifts and talents with the world. It gives meaning and purpose to our lives, as well as a sense of joy and playfulness. Whether we express our creativity through bringing up children and creating a home, running a business, teaching, or composing music, we all have a need to bring forth our talents and share them with others.

For months, I had felt a calling - a little whisper in my soul. A simple idea: that I should offer a photography class to a local group of homeschoolers. Nothing fancy — just a few classes on the basics of film and digital photography. I wanted my children to see me freely sharing my two greatest passions: photography & teaching. So one day, I decided to just do it and invited six families to join us for a free three week workshop.


I believe creative expression is one of our fundamental emotional needs. It’s hard to describe how fulfilled I’ve felt and how much fun I’ve had teaching these classes!

It was one of those “aha” moments when I felt what Oprah often references in the book, The Seat of the Soul.

When the personality comes fully to serve the energy of the soul, that is authentic power.

An unexpected amount of joy and playfulness have carried over into other parts of my life. I feel lighter, happier and more connected to the energy of my soul and purpose in life.
