  • A question and a little challenge for this beautiful autumn day…

    We often think we have to wait to do something extraordinary… we wait for all the lights to be green before we leave the house (so to speak). Do you ever do that? Am I the only weird one? What if we stopped waiting and started being our most extraordinary selves today? What if we… [Continue Reading]

  • When letting go is the hardest and best thing to do

    Sometimes we have to let go of things that we love very much…things we may have thought we needed to be able to become the person we were meant to become. Then when that thing is gone…we are left wondering how we will ever become what we were meant to become without it. Letting go… [Continue Reading]

All about October’s Soul School class…Let it GO, Let it BE

“Sometimes the things we have to let go of are things that we thought were so much a part of us that if they snapped off, we would surely die. But sometimes those things just get too heavy, and we can’t survive unless we let them go. So…..this is a whole lot of letting go. […]


8 Things We Should Keep To Ourselves (psst: #8 is a big deal)

Some time ago  I overheard something that was said about one of my beloveds.  Someone was speculating on her life, and it worked its way under my skin.  I wish I would have said something, but I’m much better at writing words than saying them.  I wrote down a lot of words that day…words I […]

The thing about fooling yourself…..

The thing about fooling yourself….. In a culture that worships youth….I don’t care what anyone says, it’s difficult when you start to age….when you start to get older and find yourself no longer young or young-looking and to find yourself having less and less days of young feeling. (Actually, it’s only difficult if you resist it […]

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.
