8/10/2022
We’ve reached the end friends, sadly Me Camp 2022 is over for the summer. And just like real camp, coming back home is wonderful and bittersweet at the same time.

This year’s Me Camp is in full swing, community. We have traveled from Austin to Aspen, and now up, up, up to the Northwoods of Minnesota, where we find ourselves in Grand Marais.

7/5/2022
Welcome back to another episode of our For the Love of Conversations series with one of Jen’s best loved friends, author, speaker and podcaster Kelly Corrigan.

For the Love of Conversations: Jen and Kelly on Friendship Through the Years

6/28/2022
Friendship is one of those gifts in life we can run to when it feels like the rest of the world just doesn’t get us. On a day when life hasn’t been cooperating exactly as you’d hoped, who hasn’t called that friend we can vent to, cry to, laugh with, and compare notes with? And the longer a friendship goes, the deeper the bond seems to be. But some of us are in spaces in our lives where we’ve had to follow another dream and leave the proximity of our friends. And the work of friendship takes...

For the Love of Conversations: Jen and Kelly on Hard and Beautiful Change

6/21/2022
You know there really isn’t much that’s more comforting than sitting down with one of your friends and talking openly because you know they just get you.

These conversations with friends are life-giving. And with that in mind, we thought it might be fun to have a series of conversations here in our podcast community with...
