Purpose

Welcome to Purpose.

Finding your purpose is more than just finding a career, a home, or a person to spend your life with. Certainly, these things play enormous roles — as does being a mother, a daughter, and a friend. But it’s important to know that no matter who you are, women’s purpose is more than just one checked box in your life.

Purpose is personal. It’s deep. And it’s driving.

In fact, women of purpose — women with purpose — say that once they find their purpose (or purposes), they no longer experience those fleeting thoughts that might sometimes enter the mind: Why am I here? What’s the point? Where do I go now?

We can’t forget that a woman’s purpose in life changes over time as well. From a passionate interest, to a career, to motherhood, and back again — all women ebb and flow like the waves of the ocean.

In fact, “going with the flow” is a large part of finding your purpose. If you’ve ever looked in the mirror and not recognized yourself or wondered what your “why” is in life, sometimes, you’ve got to go back to the drawing board. And that’s okay.

Living Your Purpose with Grit & Grace

In this section of our website, you’ll find articles and stories from women who are at all stages of discovering their purpose. Some are just starting out, and they share their hopes and fears. Others have been living the inspired life for some time now, and they share what they’ve learned — what they know to be true.

All in all, finding your purpose is like a timeline, but it’s not straight. Like a piece of coiling string, it moves up and down, back and forth, and around in circles. Sometimes, there’s knots. We’re here to help you undo those knots and to help you locate the strong, inspired woman within.
