I’m glad you’ve stopped by!
I’m Amy, wife to Todd, mama to one adorable little man, a new sweet baby girl, avid reader, walker, decaf-mocha with no whip drinker (my three year old knows my order, is that a problem?), all around student of life!
Strategic Futuring™ is a process that is near and dear to my heart. I first had the opportunity to walk through the process about half-way through my second graduate class (it was “The Leader as an Agent of Change”) in the MA of Organizational Leadership program at Azusa Pacific University in Azusa, CA. Every so often in life there are moments of time that become “milestones” along our path, and that class session was that for me.
I found the process empowering and so helpful in clarifying what was important to me, both what I’d done in my life up to that point, and what I wanted to do and be in the future. I fully believe that as the result of that Strategic Futuring™ exercise and having a clear vision of my future I took risks in my career and life that I would not have been so willing to take, had I not had such a clear vision of who I wanted to be, and what I wanted to be doing. Those risks included finding a great career mentor, quitting a job, and becoming self-employed!
Fast forward a few years, I’m now married, mother to two young children, and living in a different state. I had the opportunity to revisit Strategic Futuring™. This time around I found that my vision was becoming more refined, and in my role as a mother it helped me understand several things: What I was doing, Why I was doing it, and what the potential results of my decisions could have on our family in the future. It gave me the freedom to fully embrace my role as the primary caregiver to my children, while embracing the purpose, calling and vision for my life! I learned what I needed to do during nap time or bedtime to help me continue working towards my vision, but not torture myself in those long days of caregiving thinking “is this it?”
My vision is to use my gifts as a listener, encouragerer, and teacher to help other women find and stay connected to their purpose, and to find; unique, exciting, creative and life-giving ways to integrate their purpose with parenting. I truly believe that when women are connected with their purpose energy flows back into their families, homes and communities in exciting ways!
I’d love to have you join me on your own Strategic Futuring™ journey!
