I wanted to create the Goddess Spotlight to inspire women to awaken their inner goddess and let their inner light shine. I would love it if we could all feel like we were in a state of enchantment that allowed us to feel beautiful, sensual, confident, passionate, and empowered; where we all felt valued, cherished, and loved while expressing our inner truth.
At some point in our lifetime, we all go through tribulations where our strength and resilience are tested. It allows us to rise up and determine what we are made of. It helps us to learn that we are worthy of respect and love. This has certainly happened to me: I have been faced with challenges and had to decide if I was going to give up or look to the future with optimism. I decided that it was a far better idea to look within, and then continue working towards my dreams.
I have been fortunate to meet many inspiring and phenomenal women, and have been awed by their determination, compassion, strength, confidence, integrity, and inner beauty. I often find that women sacrifice themselves and work very hard behind the scenes to make sure that others around them shine. So many of these women are extremely kind-hearted and compassionate, and they usually put their family and others before themselves and their own dreams. I wanted to take the opportunity to put a spotlight on some empowering women who I feel should be acknowledged, honored, and appreciated for their wonderful contributions. I believe that their stories help all of us to learn and be inspired to shine bright and be amazing.

“I’ve come to believe that each of us has a personal calling that’s as unique as a fingerprint – and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then find a way to offer it to others in the form of service, working hard, and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you.” — Oprah Winfrey
