Hi Sisters…I’m Sandi, founder of Soul Chicks.
A little bit about me…
Like you, I am many different “I am’s” on any given day….wife, mom, nana to my "wolf pack" of 3 boys, friend, professional, and certified Soul Restoration Instructor. I am a seeker of truth and collector of wisdom. I love beautiful things, creating beautiful spaces, and connecting beautiful souls. I am a self-professed Super Soul Sunday and Ted-X junkie, a lover of all things inspirational, and a big fan of fun. I believe in the resilience of the human spirit. I believe that owning our stories, choosing courage, and showing up for ourselves is our power. I believe love really does transform hearts, and hope is our gift.
A little bit of my story…
I am a woman with a passionate belief in the power of women’s hearts to create a legacy of love that changes the world around them. I was born into a family of girls and loved growing up surrounded by the hearts of women. These beautiful women showed me what it was to love fiercely. I took this with me as I ventured into life and learned how to love my own little family with fierceness.
I have also seen how as women we can be so busy loving others fiercely that we give ourselves away in the process. We forget to show up for ourselves and to love ourselves with the same fierceness. That's what happened to me. Life brought some dark and painful struggles my way. I felt like I had been evicted from my life and tossed into a blinding storm where shame and blame were riding shotgun. I thought it was my job as wife, mom, daughter, nana, and friend to hold up the whole world and just keep smiling...pretending I had it all together. What I know now, as my gal Brene Brown put's it, I was "hustling for my worth." In the process I lost my joy, lost myself, allowed my soul house to fall into disrepair, and nearly had my fierce heart extinguished. It was then that I discovered Brave Girls Club and experienced Soul Restoration at Camp. I learned so many beautiful things about myself there, it healed wounds, put truths to my lies, gave me tools, and connected me to a sisterhood of amazing souls. The experience broke me open and set me on a path to wholeness. It has been an incredible journey with so many gifts along the way.
It has become my passion now, to share the lessons I have gathered to help lift other women so they can live big, brave, beautiful and true within their own life…whatever that looks like for them. That is why I am so excited that as a Certified Soul Restoration Instructor I get to bring this life changing curriculum to other beautiful women. I believe in the power of this curriculum so much that I founded Soul Chicks around it. As you can see, I love teaching this and hope you will experience what showing up and being lifted up can do for you! It really is life changing magnificent stuff!! I hope we meet soon.
With Big Love –
“Transformation doesn’t ask that you stop being you. It demands that you find a way back to the authenticity and strength that’s already inside of you.”
This is me, Sandi (on the left) with my sisters. You will meet them at camp.
Laurie is on the right…she is my oldest sister and one of the beautiful women that has taught me how to love fiercely. Life threw some really hard stuff her way, then threw some more, but she kept loving anyway!! That is amazing, I think she is amazing, and I know you will too.
Pam is the one in the middle and is the middle sister…literally. Pam is all heart….she loves big and true and pure. Her love is her gift to the world, and if you are lucky enough to be in her world you will be a better person because you have been loved by her. I can’t wait for you to meet her.
Hi Sisters…I’m Shannon, a fellow Soul Restoration Instructor at Soul Chicks.
A little bit about me…
I’m a single mom of 2 young men, and one adorable Chocolate
lab pup. I am a believer in truth, truth seeker, creative soul, and
connector of women.
A little bit of my story…
In 2012 I was a camper at Brave Girls Soul Restoration Camp. Little did I know how the lessons I learned there would help me navigate the loss of my marriage and life as I had known. I am now in a place of beginning again, rebuilding, reinventing and re-learning. Some days have been so hard and scary that I didn't know how I would make it, some days still are. But through each of my experiences, even the devastating ones, I’ve learned that I can do hard things if I just keep showing up. I also learned that I can help other women by sharing my story and the lessons I've learned. As a certified instructor, through the lessons of Soul Restoration I am able to come alongside other women and help guide them back to themselves.
That's why Sandi and I have joined together as “Soul Chicks” to bring you beautiful soul restoring retreats and classes. Remember, you are loved, worthy of feeling joy & living a beautiful life. No matter what season you are in, we simply cannot wait to meet you.
