December 13, 2010



Are you serious...this is the opportunity of a lifetime! My life has been so hectic and I was going to try and register and then life got in the way and the next thing you knew it was the 11th and registration was closed. I am now watching from a far as others are on the path to recovery and I feel so left behind.
7 years ago my husband became terminally ill and than by a hugh miracle received a life saving Heart Transplant. My daughter went to University and is now finished and back at home for one semister, my 14 year old son has started high school and with the continuing struggles with the transplant and all of the medical complications from drugs we are trying to make it through the day...or should I say I am, not to mention all of the personality conflicts and just day to day know...Stuff!
I know I am at a crossroads right now and this is just what the doctor ordered! I need to find my soul again and then have it restored, I know this will put me on the right path to making me number one so that I can put my family back together...hoping 2011 will be MY Year!
Thank you so much for this generous offer...I am following you are awesome...thank you again!! Happy Thursday xOxO

I have been wanted to attend this camp for a long time, but they are always all sold out. I've had an awful year and I would really love to take time for myself and focus on healing.


Wow! What an awesome giveaway. I fell that I'm really in a good place right now to make changes in my life that will actually 'stick'. This course sounds wonderful!

My soul longs for the restoration offered in this course...


I am signed up for it but I wanted to win it for my freind who has had a very hard year her brother is sick and not going to live long she takes care of her mom and has her sil leaning on her now to she is a secritary and does not make alot and she really wanted to take the course but no way to pay for it and she needs something to spend on herself so she knows she has worth. It would be great for her to take the course!!!


I don't know if its too late to submit an entry. I just found your blog and really love it. 2011 is going to see a fulfillment and change in a lot of ways for me. I quit my full time, corporate job in 2008 because it was sucking the life out of me. I've been working as much as I can doing contract work and going to school to finish my bachelors. I'll finally graduate in July 2011. I can't believe it's actually going to happen. I'll finish in time for my 20 year reunion. :) Brave Girl really resonates with me because I feel like it took a lot of courage to do what I did, but now I need to know what's next. I need more courage to jump into whatever is next. I've been using my lack of a degree as a way to hold myself back from really embracing the future and now I won't have that excuse. It's terrifying actually. I could really use figuring out what is REALLY in my soul to do. Is it getting my Masters in Spiritual Direction? Is it moving back to Houston? Is it pursuing writing and art or are those just hobbies? I know God's at work and I can rest in Him. If nothing else, it's been good just to write this and get it out.

The new year will bring in some major change for my family. My hubby will be leaving his job of more than 16 years to being self employed. This to allow more time to take care of my 86 years old mother-in-law and to bring our young kids home after school instead of staying in school for after school care in the hope that they can finish school work earlier and have more time to relax. Right my children finish school work and dinner and it already hit 9:00pm plus. They are so TIRED! They need more rest and sleep! There is some apprehension on my part about my hubby's move. I keep telling myself all will be well and be calm.

Well being led to BGC led me to an entire morning's worth of reading about BGC, then Melody Ross' blog. An entire morning. Talk about something good for my soul! I've had a string of bad years, but fortunately the last year showed promise of things getting better. However I find myself on the brink of a major change in my life, giving up a 10-year business. I don't know what doors will open up, but I know that I'm not going to find ANY open doors if I don't step out of this door out onto the road of discover. I knew 2011 is going to be my "reinvent myself" year, and I can't think of a better way to kick the year off than by taking Melody's Soul Restoration course. Thanks to the both of you for making available 3 spots for your giveaway. I hope I'm one of the winners!


I am very excited that Brave Girls have decided to offer an e-course. I always used to think I might never make it to the camp. I was blessed with a beautiful baby girl this year. Eventhough things have been crazy busy. I am very grateful for having a very adorable/active 2 and half year old son and a now seven month old girl. So, thank you so much for offering this course.

Thank you both for offering up a spot in this workshop. Here's hoping I win one!


I would love to win and hang out with all the artits. Thank you for that chance.


wow... can barely begin to describe the year... my father has been diagnosed with terminal cancer, my three year old broke his leg, my partner is still unemployed and while I love my job working for one of the largest craft retailers, I am often overwhelmed by the amount of work I have to do. It is nearly impossible to find "me" time and I know that I am "in here somewhere" I just haven't seen her in a long time. Melody Ross has always made me smile-- her ability to take life's downs with as much grace as the ups often gives me strength. I would love to be able to take this course. I am sorry for your loss this year... may you find comfort in your talents and your memories.


Oh my. I desperately need to restore my soul....sounds like just what I need. Thanks for the chance to win!

This is by far the best gift any woman can receive! I have come to realize in the past year how i have really taken the wrong course in life... on the outside, i think things look ok. but the part people don't really see is not only emotionally draining, but has been affecting me physically as well... starting with guilt from overspending and hoarding and not giving my wonderful husband the time he deserves. Then the "loss" of my dearest sister-in-law, neice and nephew from a bad divorce along with a lot of recent sickness in my family has me overwhelmed. I now have palpitations and rapid rates because of the anxiety. I need to refocus on what matters and this would be the perfect course for me.

While I am very grateful for the blessings I have, there is a part of me that is lost. I would love to take this online class and do some soul healing. Thanks for being so generous and sharing this opportunity. This is amazing!

Lori Kaye

so want to do brave is tight for even online :( but I know I will get there someday but today I will be brave anyways!!!


My husband is in the ministry and while I love being a ministry wife it gets hard sometimes constantly dumping into others & just feeling emotionally & spiritually exhausted. I crave time just to "decompress." I think during the holidays the feeling gets more acute than at other times because I want to make special memories for my family. I also lost my beloved grandmother in heart misses her & adds a bit of sadness to the happy holiday season this year. Now, what am I thankful for? My amazing husband, beautiful children & the home that I have been able to make into a sanctuary for my family.
Thanks so much, Christy!

This is so what my soul needs right now. The last 3 summers have been hard on me. 3 summers ago my father passed away after I left my job to care for him at home. 2 summers ago my grandfather passed away after what we thought was a simple surgery and came to found out he had stage 4 liver cancer. Then this past summer I found out that I have uterus cancer and had to have a full hysterectomy. The last few months have been hard being 28 and knowing that you are never going to be able to have kids and guys not wanting to date you because of that. Right now I so need this to help me find myself again. Thank you Christy!

I don't want to type out a pity party but this is something that I actually NEED in my life. I'm on social security disability & make "too much money" for state health insurance. I have been very ill and it is affecting my waay of looking at life. I'd like to set goals and see some tomorrows because right now...I don't see any. I'm 40 yrs old living with my mother because I can't afford to financially support myself. I am a Life Artist without the opportunity for 'counseling' right now. The workshop would give me a light at the end of the tunnel to stay focused on. Thanks Christy and BGC
