FREE Virtual Book Club!


I have been toying with the idea of doing a virtual book club for quite some time now.  I know so many women who LOVE reading, and genuinely benefit from the time it gives them to decompress and relax — but they just don’t make time for it.  I was the same exact way until I started coaching.  Now — gosh, I can’t imagine who I’d be without my daily personal development.

This book club will be as hands on or hands off as you would like.  You are welcome to engage multiple times a day, or simply pop in and check out the newsfeed as you desire.  This is for YOU — to help you become the very best version of YOU there is.

While I want you to be flexible and allow yourself grace in missing some reading/check ins, I also know that you are joining this book club for a reason.

You need something like this — a community like this — something positive in your day that will prepare your mind and heart for the responsibilities before you.  So do your best to invest the time in reading and checking in.  Set aside that time for YOU.  Even if it’s just 10 minutes a day.  Set that alarm for 10 minutes earlier and start your day with a cup of coffee and your book prior to those kiddos waking up.  Make it a priority as best you can!

We are the best women we can be when we serve ourselves FIRST, but as women…we often put ourselves LAST.

This month, let’s set aside some “me” time and dedicate some time to curling up with a book that is just sweet honey for the soul!

And now — for the release of the book title that we will start with (oh man, I’m so excited)!!!

Grace, Not Perfection is a must-read for all women.  Whether you are a mom, student, sister, or wife, Emily has written a book for all of us who struggle with letting go of perfection.  Practical and beautifully written, Grace, Not Perfection gives us the freedom to make what matters happen and to step into a life of purpose.  Get ready for a joy-filled journey as you turn each page!” -Lara Casey (author of Make It Happen and Cultivate)

There you have it, ladies, a book designed for us to simplify our lives and embrace what TRULY matters.

In this book, Emily lays out for us practical steps to bring fulfillment and meaning to our lives — even on the craziest OR most mundane of days.  You will see tips, insight, and even some pages designed for reflection and note taking should you wish!

To learn a bit more about Emily Ley, check out her blog!

Okay, so what can I expect from this group?

The book is broken up into 3 parts — each week we will read one part of the book.  Everyone is encouraged to use the Facebook group as a means of communication and conversation — providing daily inspiration and/or discussing topics that are related to the book.  Each Monday, a list of questions/conversation starters will be posted that pertain to the readings completed during the previous week!

Cara Travis

This cute blonde is Cara – welcome to her transformation story!

Cara wasn’t a fan of the early morning gym scene (mad rush in the morning = not so awesome start to the day).  Enter — home workout programs.  Cara fell in LOVE with 21 Day Fix Extreme on Beachbody On Demand — 30 minutes a day, no gym commute, no hassle — just sweat, calories burned, and results …AMAZING results!  She also made (and makes) Shakeology a priority  Non negotiable chocolate shake (and the perfect amount of peppermint extract — hellloooo thin mint!) to start her day.

This, my friends, is what led her to her TRANSFORMATION…..

This chick has lost 25 lbs — TWENTY FIVE POUNDS!  30 minutes a day.  Chocolate Shakeology.  25 lbs down.

To add to it, Cara wasn’t sick ONCE during cold and flu season.  She has gained muscle mass she has NEVER seen before.  She views her morning workout as a form of stress release and therapy.  AND she has gotten her hands on new recipes and tips from her fellow challengers through our accountability groups!

Cara GETS IT!  She has made this her LIFESTYLE.  Not a quick fix, but a lifestyle.  One that CLEARLY looks pretty daaaang good on her.

PS — This chick is getting married September 2017.  Now THAT is going to be one BEAUTIFUL bride!!!

Bravo, Cara!!
