Timing is Everything

If there’s one thing I’ve seen over and over in my career and personal life, it’s the power of “right timing.” But what is it and how do we find it or wait for it with confidence? I’m working with...

Not Fair, When We Compare

It doesn't matter what I feed the twins for dinner, the minute they look at each other's plate they blurt out, "She has more, that's not fair!" It sounds childish, but we all do it don't we?...

Self Care, Why Care?

20 years ago my self-care looked like this... - Wake up early for a run in the Park. - Shower then coffee and devotions before work. - Saturdays sleep late, explore NYC (shopping, browsing). -...

Timing is Everything

If there’s one thing I’ve seen over and over in my career and personal life, it’s the power of “right timing.” But what is it and how do we find it or wait for it with confidence? I’m working with our 6 yr old Victoria on timing. She’s got lots to say as a...

Not Fair, When We Compare

It doesn't matter what I feed the twins for dinner, the minute they look at each other's plate they blurt out, "She has more, that's not fair!" It sounds childish, but we all do it don't we? Scrolling Instagram, talking to co-workers, walking past happy groups at...

Self Care, Why Care?

20 years ago my self-care looked like this... - Wake up early for a run in the Park. - Shower then coffee and devotions before work. - Saturdays sleep late, explore NYC (shopping, browsing). - Sunday Brunch with friends after church. These days my self-care is more...

The Antidote to Discouragement

I've got a rather simple solution for the next time you feel discouraged or a tad bit hopeless. It's one that for years has been a life-line in my own journey. It pushes aside the "why me syndrome," and fast-forwards the sense of possibility. Are you ready for this...

Need Hope for Your “How?”

One of the most persistent questions I've asked in life is "How?" - How will this happen? - How can it change? - How should I respond? - How can I keep hoping? The "When?" question runs a close second, but this "How?" dilemma seems more frequent. I found some real...

What is Wholeness Anyways?

I had a bone density test two weeks ago at the radiology lab, and ran into a dear friend who was in for a breast biopsy. It felt like divine timing to be there together, reminiscing about how we both got through breast cancer a...

Ready for a “Suddenly?”

It was about this time in December when a friend called with the question, “Lynette, do you still want twins?” “Why are you asking?” was my first hesitant response. At 52, I felt way past this dream. Turns out a “suddenly” was about to unfold. I share what happened...

Building a Timeless Holiday Wardrobe

I’ve been planning what to wear for a handful of holiday parties, and thought a few holiday wardrobe suggestions might be fun to share (please share yours too!) My “collection” includes skirts, pants, jackets and dresses, some dating back over 20 years, that...

Giving Your Way Out of Grief

The journey with our son Jordan, who died 5 years ago after a valiant battle with cancer, taught me about a different type of giving worth pondering on this #GivingTuesday. While many were sending flowers for the funeral, someone suggested we ask people to give to...

Alone on Thanksgiving

Have you ever been alone on Thanksgiving? I have. I had just started a new job, with no accrued vacation days, while everyone else including my entire family, were out-of-town celebrating together. This “all alone” scenario had potential to instigate a big “Why me?”...

Five Alive

It’s about nutrition. Add good things to your diet.

Realizing This, Changed Everything

Ron and I spoke for a couples conference last weekend in Jersey City, right next door to where my Deloitte office was for six years, overlooking downtown Manhattan. I shared a point with the crowd that was a reminder of a nugget that set me free years ago when I first...

To Be Paid or Not to Be Paid…

That is the question isn't it? At what point if ever, do we start charging for a talent or service we frequently give to others? Women often uniquely struggle with the idea of putting a dollar value on their skills. Shouldn't I be generous and giving? Why not lend to...
