I am capable of everything in him.

I am capable of everything in him.

I love the internet. One of the little girls I lived with in Brazil got a facebook yesterday. She’s not so little anymore… she’s 14 years old. Prior to this, I had to resort to snail mail and the kids NEVER wrote back. This morning she chatted with me. I had a million questions for […]

I love cacti. I think it’s from growing up in the Southwest and then living elsewhere for so long. I realized that cacti were actually special. Now that I’m back in the west, I take note of almost every cactus that I see. I love that they are there, year round, solid, intricate things. My dear friend […]

Yesterday we released a product line over on Blessed Is She. The Lenten journal was such a hit and we saw so many incredible women talking about their new journaling practice. And the beauty of Lent is that the new habits that we form don’t have to be left just to those 40 days, they […]

I recently came across this magazine, Be Radiant, again. It looks like they are just about to release a new issue after a year hiatus. I had totally forgotten that they did an article on me in my last month in Brazil. I found it in their Fall 2012 issue and was completely filled with […]

Accepting a surprise gift.

I got back into LA last night after a quick trip to Phoenix. My brother had a show to play so I planned to tag along (part of my choosing to move closer to home was actually to visit home more often than just holidays). I was also DYING to meet Jenna, who started Blessed […]

I Don’t Need You.

February 26, 2015 1 min read

I love the show GIRLS. I think it helps me look at my own life with a little bit more humor. I identify way too much with all of the characters in different ways. The show is brilliant in its total simplicity. I heard my favorite thing so far in all four seasons this past […]

Time Management.

February 25, 2015 2 min read

“I am running so late.” I say that at least once a day, but generally closer to three times a day. Alex tells me I have poor time management skills. I disagreed with him until I honestly looked at how many times I am late to appointments, meetings with friends and yoga class. For too long […]

Since I’ve probably watched every thing on Netflix already (and by watch, I mean that I listen to it while I work and catch a few scenes visually if the windows on my desktop fit together properly), I’ve started to listen to Podcasts again. Yesterday I caught this series on Strangers about the director’s love […]

Happy Sunday! I’ve been creating the wallpaper downloads for Blessed is She every week. Since they are sent out in email format to the BIS subscribers, I thought I would have an option to download them from Be A Heart.                                 […]

I overheard a lady say the other day, “it was amazing. I actually liked her and I usually don’t like other women very much.” I’ve heard this a lot and have probably even said it myself. I think it was a little bit more common when I was younger. Almost as if it were cooler to be […]

Be A Heart Update.

February 05, 2015 2 min read

It’s now February and I’m pretty sure it’s the beginning of Spring here in LA because I’m noticing a lot of flowers blooming while out on my bike. A lot of things are happening on my end. I spent the last couple of days updating the website (1.1 might we say?!) to reflect it all […]

Etty Hillesum.

January 29, 2015 1 min read

Etty Hillesum is my first choice for someone who teaches me how to “be a heart” in my new series that I explained earlier here. A few years ago, I read her diary, which I highly recommend. She was born in 1914 in Holland and was Jewish. She died at Auschwitz in 1943 and her diary […]
