• 14 ingeneously creative dining room ideas from Brave Girl Camp

    Hello, friends! Five times a year, we get to drop everything and have Brave Girl Camp…and even after five years we are still pinching ourselves that this is our ‘job’.

  • Why do I worry?

    Today I was stitching on a little project.  I started thinking this project is taking up quite a bit of my time…. Really no one will notice if I give it my very best or I do an adequate job. No one will really care if I don’t take that extra time to make it… [Continue Reading]

10 Brave Girl Life Hacks for Peaceful Living

People close to me tell me I’m a peaceful person and that I carry an air of peacefulness and serenity. Hmphf. HMPHF. I guess. The truth is that sometimes I don’t feel much like that on the inside, but peace is critical to me and getting there is an ongoing battle of choices. You see, […]

brave girls club - trust the path

Somehow we learn to trust the path

This path through life is interesting. Sometimes it gives us sunny skies with beautiful views.  Sometimes the path is twisty, and we are pleasantly surprised when we see what is around the corner.  Sometimes the path is uphill and strenuous, sometimes it’s downhill and our legs move so fast we can hardly keep up. Once […]

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.
