“In a world full of admonitions to “do more” and “go faster,” Bethany offers a deep breath of release. A permission slip, if you will, to stay present while embracing your future and healing your past. To accept who you are deep down, past your fears or failures, beyond your to-do list, or more sincere than the sum of your success. “Permission Granted: Embrace who You Are, Cultivate Courage, Impact Your World” is a book you’ll savor bite by bite, word for word. Cozy up in your comfiest chair. Sip some coffee from your favorite mug. And indulge in this exquisite work of art to celebrate the gift of you.“
~Rachel Lewis, author and speaker

I thought things were under control - until they weren’t and I am still unsure exactly where it all unraveled, how I came to the end of myself. And yet that’s where I ended up. At the end of myself. It would seem that at one’s end There Would Be Nothing. But you were...
You are a warrior.
You are a warrior. You’ve walked a tightrope - steady - the balance between hope and grief, joy and pain, digging in and letting go. You’ve trusted. And you didn’t fall. Somehow you found a way to be present in the midst of holding so much. How did you manage to dance...
Hey, skinny jeans.

Bloom for real

“Bethany has an eye for the exquisite in everyday life and her unique writing style shows it. It is at once poetry and prose—an imperfect blend of rhythm and reckless abandon of writing rules that works just perfectly. I predict she could be the Ann Voskamp of her millennial generation. I admire her thoughtful words. She always takes me on a little flight to see the extraordinary that she finds in the ordinary.”
~ Chris Moss, speaker and expert on bringing the generations together
Invite Bethany to Speak at your next event
We are each called to take up our space. One of my favorite things to do is to remind women that there’s no need to wait on an invitation to pursue their passion, purpose, and possibilities. We are to take up our space with grace, courage, and bravery and make the impact that only we can make. We’ve got to show up as whole people and bring all we’ve got to the table. And, we don’t have to do this alone. You ready? Let’s go!
