- Here is one of my favorite quotations of all time, courtesy this God-fearing man who was a bright and shining light to the world. Though he died the year I was born I feel his impact keenly. On MLK Day, I remember how he sacrificed and am both grateful and inspired to do more.
Sooner or later all the peoples of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood.

My friend Cate is opening her hands to give. In gratitude for God’s unconditional, everlasting love and with her heart reflecting His…
Cate plans to donate up to $1,000 to Feed My Starving Children.
You can participate with her in this effort by visiting and commenting on her blog. She’ll donate $1 for every person who comments on today’s post before the end of the month, up to $1000.
I love the vision and mission of Feed My Starving Children too (we’ve packed meals with friends and family several times and it’s an experience unlike any other), and I admire Cate’s intention. So I’m doing my small part to spread the word.
Cate is one of the many lovely people I’m surrounded by–friends, family, fellow members of the Magic Wand Collective, in our neighborhood and in our church community at Christ Presbyterian–who make a spirit of abundance and generosity a part of their daily lives.
I’m so inspired. Are you?

We have this really magical thing happening over here.
It’s what we hoped would happen when we started bringing women to the same place at the same time –
♥ women who own businesses and have started non-profits
♥ women who want to own a business, but don’t yet know how or when
♥ women who make creative things
♥ women who write inspiring blogs
♥ women who want to offer healing to our world
♥ women who want to bring beauty to our world
♥ women who believe that there is something called abundance
which simply means that there is more than enough to go around
♥ women who know how to be authentic and caring
♥ women who ask for encouragement
♥ women who share freely what they know
♥ women who believe that one member’s success is every member’s success
♥ women who celebrate together
♥ women who support each other on tough days
♥ women like you
being community for each other.
We asked ourselves what would happen if we could wave a magic wand over our businesses, other women-owned businesses, and our community.
We asked ourselves what we could accomplish with and for each other through an organization that was member-owned. An organization that is organic and flexible, developing and growing according to the needs and desires of its members.
We asked ourselves what a community that embraced abundance, accountability, balance, creativity, generosity, financial well-being, growth, honesty, individuality, and mentoring would look like. And feel like.
And behold! This is what happened!
It’s called the Magic Wand Collective.
It’s a community for Women Small Business Owners.
We have added 90 members since our launch on January 20th.
And it’s blindingly beautiful.
