Today in my hot yoga class there was a woman standing in the front row who was ridiculously happy. She had this smile, a very big, toothy smile on her face, the ENTIRE class. I’m not kidding. It lasted the whole hour. When I first noticed her, I smiled too. After all, smiling is contagious. But within five minutes it just got weird. And plastic, because she didn’t seem real.

"I'll have what she's having..." Spend 5 minutes with Dale and you'll want what she has.
Dale’s own courageous faith journey has taken her beyond the pride of good-girl behavior, unhealthy emotional patterns and difficult family dynamics. The result? She gets it, and connects with women through authenticity, wisdom and humor.
And without all the pretense. No pretty packaging. No performing. No perfection.
Dale goes straight to the core of what women really want and need. She inspires them to own their weaknesses and embrace their need for God. She motivates them to be their best, stewarding their gifts and talents to display the heart of God to others. She shows women their purpose and empowers them to live free. Free from guilt and expectations. Free from striving and negative thought patterns. Free to live in the unconditional love that has been theirs all along.

I had been in her class before so she might have caught a whiff of me. Holy cow. I suddenly felt shame and embarrassment. What if I was walking around reeking of anger? What if they were talking about me, the angry one, in the […]Read More
“We all need a Dale in our corner. Someone wiser, someone will to go to the hardest of places, someone that will use her personal struggles to shed light on the path toward freedom.”
“There is something about the coaching calls with Dale that allows me to truly come as I am. Now, I am focused on the path the Lord has for me. The world’s demanding pace is no longer my pace.”
Dale continues to amaze me every time I hear her speak. Her topics are fresh, inspiring and provoke change and personal growth. I am forever grateful for her wisdom, talent and commitment to teachings that are rooted in Christ.
