Hi there, I’m Heidi!
Thanks for stopping by! You are WELCOME and WANTED in this Tribe of Brave and Courageous People! We are a community that seeks to help one another to BE BRAVE and FLOURISH in Life! Thus, the name “Bravely Flourish” was birthed in an effort to spur one another toward doing things out of our comfort zone and making the most out of our one & only life! I have always been a Dreamer, a person that exudes positivity and strives toward excellence in all that I do. For most of my life that mantra worked for me, except when it didn’t and I found myself face down, having taken some knocks that life had dealt me. (I will share more about that in my Life Story) At one time or another, we all find out that life can leave us a little gut punched and stunned. So what’s a girl to do when she falls flat on her face… Dust herself off, get back up, Be Brave, write a new ending to her story, and get about Flourishing in Life again! Now this is much easier said than done. Life has a way of taking you on twists and turns that you never thought you would face, but with the help of God, the encouragement of others, a positive attitude, an open mind, and a strategic plan held loosely for God to fill in the details is a good start. Maybe you’re like me, you’ve taken a knock in life, maybe your life circumstances have left you unsure about what direction to go next, maybe you find yourself in a new season of life, or maybe you’re just starting out on your own and need to catch God’s vision for your life. Wherever you find yourself today, please know that you are LOVED, that God has AMAZING PLANS for Your Life, and that you can do all things through Him who will give you the strength to face whatever is going on now or around the bend!
I am blessed to be wife to Rob, who I’ve been married to for over 25 years now. I am a Mom to Ashlyn and Jarrett and Mom for a year to Frederikke, our foreign exchange student from years ago, who will forever be part of our family even though the miles separate our two countries. I am a Certified Life Coach and more specifically love helping people create strategic plans for their Career or Healthy Lifestyle! One of the knocks I took in my life specifically related to Health Challenges that I have experienced since my late 20’s. Over the years, I have learned a lot about what can help improve your health and well being, as well as what doesn’t. I plan to share my highs and lows, the good and the bad, the better and the best ways to create a Healthy Lifestyle. I’m still walking this road and continue to learn and grown in this area of my life every day!
When I became a Life Coach, I developed a Vision Statement for my Life. Here it is… I am a woman of God who is LOVING, LEADING, & LIFE-GIVING, who desires to ENCOURAGE, EQUIP, and ENGAGE people to pursue God’s plans and purposes for their life! I believe it is my life’s mission to help people to be BRAVE and FLOURISH in order to live into their full potential. That means this is a place where you will be LOVED for who you are! The posts, workshops, online classes, and resources will exist to lead you toward success in your life, whatever that looks like for you. This is community that exists to be LIFE-GIVING. You can lick your wounds here, dust yourself off, and pick yourself back up again. Yes, you will find lots of ENCOURAGEMENT here, too. Here’s a recipe to LIFT YOUR SPIRITS… How about a cup of Affirmations, a dash of Inspirational Stories, and a pinch of ideas to stay Positive in the midst of your circumstances. Finally, I will be EQUIPPING you with the tools to create the life you desire, and the motivation to get you ENGAGED in pursuing your dreams and goals. If I can help you in this pursuit, please reach out. This website exists to be a resource for you!

What It’s All About…
Bravely Flourish exists to encourage you to pursue God’s plans and purposes for your life. It is a place where we will cheer one another on to make a positive difference in our homes, our communities, and where ever else God leads us to help His people. It is my prayer that we will come together as a community to share, encourage, build, lift up, wipe tears away or whatever it takes to keep walking forward in faith with God. I am trusting that in some way you will benefit from me sharing what God is teaching me and that in doing so it will encourage your to BRAVELY FLOURISH in your life circumstances.
