Chocolate for the Soul

Live simply. Laugh often. Add cocoa.

What is it about hot cocoa with mini-marshmallows?

new-hot-chocolate-wmRemember curling up on the couch with a cup of hot cocoa?

How it warmed your fingers and made your insides feel all toasty?

Back then life was simpler, less hectic. There weren’t so many items on your calendar, yet somehow you managed to get more done and felt a better sense of accomplishment.

Wouldn’t you love to recapture that feeling? It is possible, you know…

For starters, join my tribe at Chocolate for the Soul and receive a Weekly Bite… Inspiration Dipped in Chocolate! 


Then check out my Live Simply page  for the inside scoop on making the rest of your life even better than the first part. It really does work! I help you say ‘no’ to the things that drain you and ‘yes’ to the things that recharge your ENERGY!

And if you are interested in getting the chemicals out of your home, check out my ‘Live Clean’ page. You have to buy cleaning supplies,  personal care items, vitamins and maybe even pet-care products anyway, so why not get the kind without those nasty, allergy-inducing, irritating chemicals?

Then if you want to get the kids off their hand-held devices…

Tempt them with my Puppet Script-of-the-Month Club  where you can download scripts with titles like The Mice of Downton Abbey,  The Real Chameleon Housewives of New York and Marshmallow Wars. They’re in my Chocolate Workshop along with a few other goodies!

My Story…


Swimming in our pool

Originally a New Yorker (the Upstate version), I grew up in a large family and loved hanging out with my siblings, especially during those long, cold winters when we would all be stuck inside, driving my mother crazy while Dad was at work. Seizing the opportunity to assist them in more ways than even they wanted earned me the nickname of Mother 2.

As a Coach with the Love Your Life! team I love helping big-hearted, creative women who are ready to start out the next chapter of their life with pizzazz!

Co-host of radio shows, Wake up, LouisianaBeautiful Minds, Chesterton’s Corner, Books & Movies, and Hearth & Home I live in Baton Rouge, LA with my very Southern husband, Steven.

But, enough about me…

There is more inside each one of us than we know. You just might need a little help chiseling around the marble to reveal the masterpiece within!

How can I help you get more out of your life?

    I think it was you I heard a few mornings ago make a reference a poem. The name you were looking for is Martin Niemöller.

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.
    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
