WOW – What a huge day! Thrive Through the Five was released yesterday and it has already been named the #1 New Release in TWO categories on Amazon! Thank you SO much for all of your support! 💙 Check it out HERE!
There are SO many people to thank (which is why my Acknowledgements section was 4 pages long in the book 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️) but I did want to give a special shout-out here to just a few…
- Dave & Shelley Burgess – Words can’t express my thanks! You both have revolutionized the publishing world by giving voice to incredible teachers and leaders who are doing the work every day! And Tara Martin – Thank you for helping bring this book to LIFE! I’m so thankful to have published with the team from #dbcincbooks
- The Reading List – Lindsey, Sal, Dana, Liz and the entire team that worked on my book… It is such a better book because of all of your editing and design work! #DBCincbooks has chosen the best of the bests for their books and I am grateful!
- Laci Bracewell – Your cover is STUNNING and tells the story of leadership journey in so many intricate and symbolic ways. (PS – Check out Ruby’s Rubbish to see Laci’s amazing designs on the most comfortable clothes you’ll ever put on).
- Amelia Buchanan – Your sketchnotes at the end of every chapter paint a beautiful picture of what my words attempted to say. Your drawings are a gift to this book! (see them all here and some of Amelia’s other work here)
- Rebecca Egger – You were the first person I entrusted with the entire manuscript to do some beta reading for me. Little did I know that your fingerprints would make their way throughout the book. I’m so thankful for your brilliant insights!

I also wanted to share a couple of resources:
