  • So I Made Pickles

    Perfectionism.  Silly word.  I mean, really.  Who are we kidding?  I call myself a recovering perfectionist, yet the whole idea of “perfectionism” feels false.  Impossible really.  As if anything I could ever possibly do or create or fix or rearrange would ever have even a smidgen of “perfection”? Because what we usually mean when we say… [Continue Reading]

    I have been sick for a long time. But I am getting better. I can feel it. Everything has shifted.

About Brave Girls Club

We started Brave Girls Club five years ago, at a time when all we had was a bunch of wild ideas, a king-sized dream, and an excitement to get to work. We wrote a mission statement that read:

"We are on a wild and crazy mission to find all of the brave women of the world...to help them find each other...then to change the world with good news, good ideas, good people, and good times. "

A little background....Melody was just coming out the other side of several years of heartbreak and loss, the most devastating being the traumatic brain injury suffered by her husband, Marq. She had developed a tremendous compassion for all those who are living with pain and loss and determined to spend the rest of her life helping them and teaching the things she had learned from her own experiences.

Our vision quickly spread to our families (we are sisters), and then to our friends, and girl by girl it has spread by word of mouth literally all over the world. We've been joined by Brave Girls as far away from our little Idaho town as Australia, Africa, Europe, South America and Asia. We have found that no matter where we are from, no matter our backgrounds or ages, we are all so much more alike than we are different. We all want to live joyful, peaceful and brave lives.

We hope you will join us! There's a place for you here.
