What our listeners are saying:

"These stories help me escape the circumstances that I've created to a life I long for and a reality of what could be. They are relatable and I feel euphoric and peaceful when I listen. It helps me find the genuine me as it puts life in perspective and reminds me that I have control of my destiny, and ability to declutter my obligations and thoughts."

- Tina, Marketing Manager, Mother of two

"I listen to the stories on the way to work as I often suffer from anxiety from racing thoughts. The stories calm me every time."

- Adrienne, Office Manager, Mother of three

"I find these stories compelling. They are different than a Podcast or Audiobook, and although the stories stand alone, they all fit together. The narration is soothing and the stories are cinematic, like ear-movies for the soul. I recommend these stories to anyone trying to get it together for a thought provoking "head break"."

 - Dan, IT Professional & Author

"I'm busy and don't have time to read so I listen to one five minute story at a time in the car, while mowing the lawn or cleaning. I really get into the stories. There's nothing out there like this!"
- Todd, Retail Manager, Father of two 

"The stories really calm me when I feel busy or stressed. They are conversation starters. My husband and I listen to a story and it opens up conversations about life outside of all my priorities that don't feel like priorities at all when you hear and talk about the big picture of life. What's really going on."

- Patricia, Health Professional, Mother of three

"These stories bring me together so I can bring my people together. I play stories at team meetings at work so we can remind each other of how we impact those around us based on how we empower ourselves. They are empowering!"

- Jeremiah, Firefighter, Father & Grandfather

"These are incredible. I listen when I feel stuck. Stuck with the news, bored with books or TV. The stories make me feel relaxed and they broaden my perspectives. You can pick one story up at a time without missing anything. It helps me get into other people's shoes to see where mine fit in the world. I've never heard anything like this!"

- Jen, Accounting Manager, Mother of two

"Who doesn't have five minutes or time for self-help? Do you drive or take walks? Listen then! I play them for my youth groups as these are healing stories that show you how to overcome obstacles in a world full of people with trauma."
- T. Michael, Pastor, Father of two 


All of us are alive, but few truly live...

Is this you?...


We come into this world...naked and crying for our needs. We reach out to be soothed naturally. We are so aware and soak in all the learning and growth that we can. Then something happens...


We learn all of the rules it takes to fit in society. We become practical. Logical. We take the predetermined next steps as taught. But...something doesn't feel right. But we aren't taught how to deal with those feelings. So we stay practical. And logical. Our next steps keep us busy. Restless. Feeling stuck.


It's a fast paced human world. We are on the go with tasks, obligations and to-do's. We may accomplish, but feel tired. We may check off our boxes, but feel stuck. We are taught to "stay grateful", but feel restless. As busy parents, professionals, family members, neighbors and one really knows what it's like to be us as...we are doing what looks appropriate on the outside.


The weeks and months fly by. They turn into years...


Busy, restless and stuck. The good life feels like nostalgia from a busy, rusting photo album for a time when things were easier. When we were naked and crying for our needs. When we reached out to be soothed naturally. When we were so aware and soaked in all the learning and growing that we could.


Did you know:

  • 60% of adults have a chronic illness

  • 70% are taking one or more prescriptions

  • 80% are not flourishing mentally or emotionally

  • 97.3% are not keeping basic health habits


Is this me?


Well. It was. Until I started doing the hard work of peeling the things off that didn't work so I can get to the life that did. That felt good again. Then, as a Life Coach I worked with over 900 clients, hearing these same patterns over and over again. We learned how to become unstuck. How to be only busy with things that felt satisfying. We are no longer restless.


I turned these patterns into audio stories, mini-ear movies for the soul to empower the busy, restless and stuck with fresh choices. Relatable standalone stories perfect for you to get a break from your somersaulting mind through characters that provide you with fresh options.


Then something new happens...


The bite, the bruise and beauty of the human experience. Like a rush of air after a lifetime of drowning in yourself. 

It's more revolutionary than a record...and more powerful than a podcast...


If a movie and an audiobook had a baby, this would be their child.
