Tell your story, it is God's story

I feel so blessed in my life to be surrounded my supportive friends and family. Today was an extremely busy day for me. I am ashamed to admit that I went to my first doctor's appointment that I have been to in over year. This is terrible self care but there is always hope for improvement. I ended getting a few shots including a flu shot so I am feeling a little under the weather and will make it an early evening to bed. This morning I woke up to this beautiful email message from my spiritual coach April Robinson. Her words were so wise and most importantly so comforting that I wanted to share it with all of you. The important thing is that we all have a story to tell and God has blessed us all on our journeys. So with April's permission here it is. Much love, Nadine Good Morning Nadine I pray all is well. I have been meaning to call you and touch bases, but I know how time does not permit us. I thought of Job in the Bible, when you first informed the Alpha Team that you was go

Essence Summit

This past week has been a tremendous week. I was so honored to be invited to speak at the Women Who Are Shaping the World Summit. It was a tremendous honor and an unforgetable experience for me.

Today is Thanksgiving Day in Canada and I miss home terribly. To celebrate the day, I woke up and decided to be grateful today no matter the events of the day. I cleaned and decorated the house, so it felt like Thanksgiving. I had turkey pot pie for lunch, and for dinner I prepared a spicy mango & BBQ chicken; baked mac and cheese; tomato seasoned rice and a salad crowned with feta cheese, bacon, almonds and cranberries. for desert; Italian wedding cookies and almond cookies. It was wonderful, there were all aspects of my multicultural existence in the meal I prepared. I am grateful to be alive and although my children rolled their eyes at me celebrating Canadian Thanksgiving, I enjoyed myself never-the-less. I am committed to being and staying in a state of gratitude. Soul Purpose is doing very well, there is so much won
