Meditation, by Estuary Blogger Jacqueline DeSelms-Wolfe

I meditated the other day, like several times. Granted I was attending a meditation immersion weekend, but that’s beside the point.  

This wasn’t the first time I’ve meditated, but it was definitely the first time with a group of strangers and with a soft man voice guiding the way. That man voice was real as it was the voice of the man leading the weekend. We’ll call him Danny – mainly because that’s his name. He was awesome, by the way. He knows things. I guess that’s why all of us strangers paid lots of money to listen to both his voice and to his advice, or wisdom, rather.

Friends in High Places (a.k.a. Angels), by guest blogger Jacqueline DeSelms-Wolfe

Man’s a foolish creature, always at war.
Surrounded by his angels, that he chooses to ignore.
~ Nathan Bell –  “Dust”


The lyrics above are of a song I recently discovered thanks to Apple Music’s “you may also like.” That feature is an angel itself. I’d probably still be listening to MC Hammer or Color Me Badd if it weren’t for modern day technology. Or Paula Abdul.

Why Their's and Not Mine?, by guest blogger Jacqueline DeSelms-Wolfe

We woke up this morning to a large red ring around my daughter’s belly button. Thankfully this episode was on a regular weekday instead of a Sunday. It was like God listened when I prayed for some weekend medical relief, or rather wrote all about it here. He must of forgotten, however, that we were just at the doctor yesterday for her 7 year check-up.

It Was Me All Along, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

It Was Me All Along, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

I was backpacking alone in Utah, carrying a huge pack on my skinny hips that looked like raw meat.  I felt invincible, capable, with every step validating that there is nothing I can’t do. I loved it! That was many years ago.

What Are You Waiting For?, by Maureen Doyle, MAT

What Are You Waiting For?, by Maureen Doyle, MAT

What are you waiting for?

That phrase has played over and over in my mind for so many years that I don’t remember when it started. Waiting to leave a bad marriage. Waiting to start dating again. Waiting to start Life Coach Training. Waiting to write my first blog. Why all of this waiting?

Playing it Safe, by Maureen Doyle, MAT

Playing it Safe, by Maureen Doyle, MAT

Before the birth of my daughters and way before my divorce, I followed my curiosity. I followed whatever peeked my interest. 

I worked as a baker, a banker, an auditor, a real estate agent, a Spanish tutor, and even a flight attendant! 

I felt that I could be led by my sense of adventure and curiosity because the only one that I was responsible for was me.

Go Unafraid, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

Go Unafraid, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

“You have been chosen.  Go unafraid”
      - Paraphrased from John 15:16

I am experiencing the disruption of the solar eclipse!  Like the moon pulling at the rising and falling tides of the oceans so the solar eclipse pulls and tugs at me with emotional upheaval and challenge.

Living Into the Answers, by Susan Austin-Crumpton

I hated traveling as a child. 

It always felt like something terrible was going to happen to me or to whoever I left behind.  The anxiety was often unbearable.  I would throw up with motion sickness in the car, feel depressed when we arrived wherever we were going, and cry at every changing moment.  All I wanted was to go home.
