Madeline’s Advice


I was working on a book review last week of the four autobiographies of Madeline L’Engle. (Author of A Wrinkle in Time, and other titles.)

In preparation, besides having read the books, I watched a few interviews/speeches she made and I thought the advice she gave on parenting, among other things, was noteworthy.

She and her husband Hugh raised three children while maintaining a country home and a city apartment. They were conscientious parents and loved their family!

Her advice went something like this:

“Don’t lose your temper in front of your children, but if you do, apologize! I apologize daily. Hug them and let yourself be real. As parents, love each other as you’re fumbling along, trying to figure things out. Some of the things we did with the best intentions, turned out to be the worst. And some of the things we did on accident, turned out to be the best!

Read to your children for hours. And let them pray for hours.”

I think there is a lot of wisdom in these words.

Another thought she offered, that I think goes hand in hand with thoughts on parenting was this:

“Not forgiving ourselves can be a supreme act of arrogance.”

Let’s keep trying, little by little, and determine to drink in the lessons we are learning and value the ways that we are growing…no matter how old our children are!

Sending you much love today.

Take good care,



Lioness Planners!


This year, {I’m so excited to say!} you can choose between two styles of Lioness planners! Next year we will keep these two current styles, and add two more, making four styles in all. {A big thanks to Shantel Peaden at Red Ladder Design for her thoughtful work!}

Here is another sneak peek at some of the pages we designed with you in mind!

But first, a few thoughts. These books are 214 pages of simplifying, systematizing, self-care logging, sanity-saving bliss. Not to mention that they are feminine and beautiful, to suit you.

We’re working on a landing page for these babies, so that you can quickly order one if you would like, but for now it’s just, “hey Jacque, I want one of those!” in the comments or in an email ok?

And just a note to all you free-spirits out there that feel that having a plan is going to cramp your style: quite the opposite is true! Having plans means life is lighter and easier and gives you more time to do the creative things you want to do! I think you’ll find that even making plans, as it turns out, is a creative pursuit!

I hope you had a great Tuesday. Mine was a whirlwind! Whew, time for bed!

Take care,


Take Time


Time to pull out all of the self-care tricks you know!

The treadmill feels so good after stress. An Epsom salt bath is just the thing for tight muscles. A massage sometime soon would be quite helpful!. A quiet hour to read a book or write a letter of thanks would re-

center things. Most of all, I challenge you to find a time when you can be alone to think about the year ahead and make some plans and set out your vision. If you could take two or three hours to do that, or if you have the ability to go somewhere overnight, I recommend getting to someplace beautiful to think and to write! Write about the year behind you, what you learned and how you grew. Then write about the year ahead and what you hope to learn and the ways you want to continue your growth! It is a powerful thing to do and will make a great difference in how you spend your time in 2018.


All my best wishes to you.



Remember, Lioness planners are about to come off the press! Now you can choose between two beautiful designs! (Peach floral or lavender floral.)


Sip On This


While you’re preparing for your holiday festivities and beginning to think about 2018, I wanted you to know that I’m running a special on health coaching in time for holiday giving!

Get off to a great start in the New Year with someone to walk beside you to better health, greater organization for your home, a new look at your priorities and goals and an all-around mental, physical, spiritual and emotional adjustment!

Here’s the scoop:

Sign-up before December 15th and pay only $75/month for a three month program! {That’s an $85 savings each month!}
You get: two 50 minute sessions each month {either in person or distance}
bi-monthly assignments and
email support between sessions!
This price will not last beyond this holiday– unless you are a returning Lioness. xo

Also, I’m offering a discounted price for Lioness Seminar, 7 Steps to Family Wellness, that begins in March! You can join us in person for a great group experience, or take the course at a distance with the Lioness 7 Steps Workbook and audio recordings.

And of course, the Lioness planner is on it’s way!

I’ve been around the parenting block, cracked the household management job, lived to tell about planning and cooking 2-3 meals a day for 30+ years and I would love to support you in creating the healthy life you want for your family.

If health coaching had been available to me during the time I was raising children, it would have saved me so much time and effort and stress! Man, I can’t say that emphatically enough.

Anyhow, I hope you’ll let this opportunity marinate in your mind and if it speaks to you and you and want to jump in {or whisper in Santa’s ear that you’d like to jump in}, please do so ASAP by sending me a note!

Remember, you won’t start until January, so there’s no stress through the holidays.

Hope to hear from you!

Love ya!


P.S. Please share this offer with your friends while it’s here…

P.P.S. Gift certificates are available for any of the above!


So Excited!


I love having projects in the pipeline that I believe will be a benefit to you!

I hope you might be interested to know about a few of them:

1 We are working on a music/declaration video for you! Original music by the talented pianist Heather Bosshardt, visuals by the creative Stacy Casperson from Stacy Rose Photography, and declarations from Lioness that I hope will inspire and uplift you every day!

2 My lovely consultant, Shantel Peaden from Red Ladder Design, is working on next year’s planners and I’m so excited to see them! The idea is to add a new design each year, while still offering the design from the year before. So if you like the peaches and cream floral look of last year’s, you can reorder that one, or choose the new look if it suits you better. The tools and content will remain the same. The goal is to eventually have four different designs, one of which will hopefully compliment your kind of style.

3 Also, there is a gift being offered when a new Lioness blog subscription is made! We pondered over how to offer it to you ladies who already have a subscription and are active in the Lioness community. What we came to was a challenge! Would you consider sharing the Lioness blog with a friend and getting a print-out of the gift when she prints hers? I hope you will like the little booklet of recipes for kids, featuring 10 smoothie recipes that are fun and of course healthy! I would love to reach 100 X more families just like yours, and who knows best who are where they are than you? If Lioness has been a support to you, even a little, would you consider sharing the love with a friend?

The kids cook booklet is small and simple, but who knows, it may be the thing that gets a child in the kitchen, interested in making (or helping to make) their own healthy food!

And how about a smoothie recipe for today? I had this for breakfast this morning (thank you for the inspiration Carlin) and it was a delight!

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

1/2 cup cooked butternut squash
1 cup greens (I used fresh mixed greens, but frozen spinach would be my first choice!)
2-4 Tablespoons flax seeds
2 cups almond milk (or whatever milk you use)
1 frozen peach
2 frozen bananas
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
5 slices of frozen zucchini squash (if you have some)

I don’t have a picture because I shared it and drank it before I thought to capture it! I’ll post one soon.  Just know that even though this tastes just like pumpkin pie, it is still green. Just can’t be helped. If you don’t have one of the ingredients, don’t stress. Just know that you want mostly what I consider substance, like the protein from the flax, the minerals and goodness of the vegetables and then you likely will want a little sweet from a banana or peach or whatever frozen fruit you may have. {Know that they are far sweeter when they are frozen! Sometimes when I’ve had a lot of fresh produce, I’ll make a smoothie with it and I’m shocked at what flavor is lacking compared to using the same fruits frozen.}

Have a wonderful evening my friend!



P.S. Use Adobe when printing the cook booklet–I’ve heard that works best! (Thanks Shanna!)

P.P.S. If you you’d like to pre-order a planner, please let me know ASAP so I can get a feel for how many to print this year. Thank you!
