lessons from the ledge
a little book about big stuff

Message From Nancy...


YOU are amazing. YOU are courageous. YOU are the most incredible YOU.

We all have our own story. Unique. Yet we are share similarities. And I hope this is a place where you feel seen, heard and understood as only those of us who “get it” can. A place to drop the masks, get honest and work toward loving ourselves the same way we love others. I hope you find support, encouragement and freedom here to be your amazing self. May this place be one of truth. Non-judgment. Growth. Enpowerment.

We women are fascinating and resilient and resourceful. Many of us forget this from time to time when the words of the world up their volume. We forget that there is more than one way to do life and just showing up and doing our best is brave. May this place remind us of that whenever the “shoulds” of the world get too loud.

I hope this place helps you find your voice and expertise. No one knows you like you do. Grief, in all its forms, connects us. Addiction, whether we are in a personal battle or whether we are the collateral damage, knits us together. It is not our whole story as there is always more to us than that. Let this be a place where you are safe to let go of whatever you are carrying. To find relief or advice or connection. To know you are not alone.

As we grow in our stories and share our struggles, may we learn that there is safety in our sameness. We can hold each other up and know in our bones that we are never alone. As we rejoice in the beauty of life, we can celebrate together too. Hopefully, we will find our joys more joyful and our pain less painful as we walk along together. Because women are amazing, courageous and incredible. And together? We can share our resources, insight and hearts in a way that multiplies our strength.

I grew up with an alcoholic father and then repeated the pattern in my own home. And I learned, sometimes the hard way, that we cannot change anyone but ourselves, no matter how much we love them. Usually we need to learn how to love ourselves first. Over and over and over again.

You’re in the right place.

When you need a place where your “real” is safe, may you find it here.
When you need encouragement, may you find it here.
When you need a sister, may you find me here.
