Next to loving and raising my family, teaching and connecting with women and their families is my passion. For over 15 years I’ve created various Back to Basics programs, products, and presentations to strengthen families in simple, doable, and enjoyable ways.

It’s been such a joyful journey! Years ago it began with a life-changing experience for me.

After having four children in six years I needed a change, physically and emotionally. As I researched time-tested books and principles, I chose ones that resonated and produced results. Over time, I practiced, taught, and refined them with my family, and other women and their families. I concentrated the learning into eight life areas to create joy and success in a woman’s life.

That led to writing Faithful, Fit & Fabulous, which shares this valuable digest of simple, doable, enjoyable choices for successful everyday living.

Through this process, I lost 25 pounds and three sizes, organized my home and life, and saved 26 hours a week managing my time. I used that time to regularly share these concepts on TV, radio, and international online radio, which resulted in writing 16 books.

Because of the Back to Basics concepts, over the years I’ve been able to stay family focused, raising seven children, while helping others more happily and successfully raise their families. All of this has been line upon line, with the help of talented and good-hearted people and a loving God above, to develop what you now experience as Back to Basics.

This is my passion. And I’m excited to share this learning, to connect with you and your group, and together create growth for more joyful, meaningful, and contributing lives.
