I have been writing, teaching and creating soulful and artful tools and curriculum for more than 20 years and have found so many things that enrich the cultivation of a meaningful life. I have also had all sorts of rugged mountains put in my path, so I know a lot of tricks to make it up to the top and back down to the bottom. If you're looking for help climbing your mountain, I'd love to offer a quiet hand through my free weekly newsletter. I want to share what I've learned and I want to connect with you about the questions I still have, along with what I'm doing to find answers. I want to give you the maps of where I've been so that if you're trying to find your way through the same kinds of places, maybe these maps will help a little. You really are meant to be the hero of your own story!
So...I hope you'll sign up! If you sign up right now, you'll immediately get a welcome newsletter with a PDF download of some soulful journaling prompts and 2 cut-out collage pages to use as reminders or to cut and paste in your journal. This is all free, no strings attached. Every week on Friday, you'll get a new newsletter with some new soulwork. I will also be sharing other things I'm doing that you can participate in if they call to you... but 'a quiet word' is just a free weekly gift with no strings attached. I hope you'll give it a try, I can't wait to connect with you in this way!
Cheering for you as you climb up your next mountain,
This newsletter will have content that will only be available in the newsletter, all of the soulwork will be for the newsletter subscribers only, subscribers like you. Subscribers will also be the first to get announcements about any events or offerings that I currently have going on or have coming in the future . So I hope you'll subscribe and also that you'll open them up when you get them! I will do my best to make sure they aren't just another loud thing in your life and cluttering up your inbox. I want them to feel like the gift they are intended to be.
In case you’re wondering who the heck I am and why you’d want to get my weekly email… allow me to introduce myself.
I’m Melody Ross. I am the cofounder of Brave Living and Brave Girls Club, where we make tools for living a meaningful life. Before that, I was the founder and owner of Chatterbox for 14 years, a company focused on documenting your life. I’m deep into my 40's and I’ve done a whole lot of living, a whole lot of building, a whole lot of planting, a whole lot of failing, a whole lot of winning, a whole lot of climbing and a whole lot of falling. Some of the life mountains I've climbed, I signed up for and some I didn't, but I had to climb those mountains anyway (just like you!)
My husband and I have 5 children, 3 bonus children and 3 grandchildren, and have been married 27 years. Almost all of it has been wonderful. I host women’s retreats and he hosts men’s retreats here at our beautiful little ranch in Idaho.
I am an artist, a writer, an author and a teacher. I’ve written tons of books and designed hundreds of products and written loads of life courses. I just started a podcast too! I almost always love my job, and on the days that I don't a little bit of human connection helps me to get back on track. My biggest goal in life is to remind the human family that we are actually all just souls living in human bodies, and that being a human is freaking hard so that’s why it’s almost always messy. I spend my career creating tools to help us to heal so that we can go on to help each other heal. Healing and helping, that’s where the good stuff is. I also love to be in the mountains, I love funny people and I love crushed ice.I
So… that’s me… I’d love to know you too!
