Living with Passion and Purpose

Every person has the freedom, and the permission, to discover and embrace what has always been there: an authentic self, vital and human. A place of sanctuary, grace, passion, creativity, trust, laughter, wonder and delight.

Renewing your passion
Finding your voice
Practicing self-nurture
Creating balance
Embracing life-giving choices

    Terry, you MUST pray for my envy of your beautiful discriptive writings
    This is a truly LOL at the thought I could ever think and or write as beautiful healing words that you do. I so enjoy your mind, humor, God that I see and hear in you. I do not envy your mind, well maybe a little :)
    however I am soo happy your willing to share.

    hugs peace and continued blessings from God for you and your family
    as you say Keep dancing.

    A Stretch…..I met you in Atlanta at the SDI conference and again at the retreat location. My husband had died, you told me to let our son…’be the man’. ……He was deeply grieved…

    Over a period of seven years I wrote a manuscript; Tears Can Will Change Us. I had to rewrite given the reality of Bob’s terminal diagnosis and death – I am a Spiritual Director, an RN, have a PhD in stress research (University of Leeds,England)….

    If I sent you a copy of the manuscript, would you read it. It is 11 chapters, it is to hold the journeys of ‘others’…then I had to find my own voice….I would expect there would be a fee involved. What do you think?…..ellen leger

    Thank God for you being brave enough to breath in every thought that God gives you and breath out all the faith and wisdom so we are nourished. God Bless.

    Lovely words in the “Power of Pause”…I also attended the retreat at Holy Name of Mary in San Dimas and was so happy for learning how to “be” and “pause”. I needed this book for some time now and have been truly blessed by your words. I know that I will look at life differently and abundantly praise God for all the blessings that I witness daily now…not to mention the laughter that started at the retreat and continued as I read your book. Life is better with laughter and your words have proven it! Thank you and God Bless You!

    We are ready for RE Congress and looking forward to spending some Terry time. Year in and year out, you have and continue to deliver very powerful and insightful lessons in your sessions. They along with your books and tapes have truly changed the way we look at day to day life. Not sure how you do it Terry, one on one or in a crowd of 12,000 you seem to hit the hearts of all of us. Lastly, a quick thank you for the Sabath Moment and just being Terry.
    God Bless Your Real Big!

    Terry, thank you for your sharing at the RECongress this past weekend. Enjoyed your session on ‘LIVING WITHOUT FEAR’. Remember with all your hugs – hug “heart to heart”. Know who I am now. LOL

    You get it! You deeply understand women and therefore truly help us to understand men. My only wish is that somehow you could get the message to all those in relationship. I guess that is all of us!
    May your ministry flourish and abound so that many more people may have the courage to step into the darkness so they can see the light. Namaste.

    I was present at Holy Name of Mary in San Dimas, CA, 3-day retreat, and was so amazed and inspired with everything Terry said. He made being content with oneself a goal, an easy reality, if we just stop our wishing away the present, and just be. We have no power over the past or the future, so we must be grateful for the present beautiful moments, and recognize ourself as blessed. May I ask Terry if, on his website, where his speaking schedule is noted, if he would put the location of the retreat. God Bless, Mary Andrews

    A dear friend just introduced me to your words and I am so grateful to her. I don’t often think of myself as a person “in need” but our words have resonated with me. Thank you for your wise and thoughtful words.

    I was extremely fortuunate a member of your audience at the seminar in Denton Texas on Sept 12, 2013. I am amazed and in awe of your presentation of the important things we as humans should be paying attention to. Thank you for that reality check. Pray for my mortal soul and I will learn new life lessons through you.

    Thank You very much.

    Brenda. Thank you for the note. I was honored to be with a group of people who give of their days making life easier for others. I wished only to let you all know that there is a light shining from within, and we need to be advocates for one another so the “stuff” of life doesn’t become a bushel basket that covers that light… Keep spilling the light… Peace to you and you are in my prayers… Terry

    I so enjoyed your sharing with us at Rotary this morning. Laughing out loud, close to tears – a great start to the day. This will be my miracle for Thursday. Thank you Terry!

    Carmelita… thank you for the note… I didn’t know I could enjoy a group of people that much that early in the morning… And very glad to connect with fellow Islanders…

    Terry, please present your speaking engagement calendar with the inspirational word that specifically identifies with that group and your message…like a trailer or teaser for a movie, build the anticipation, the hope, the mutual desire to share a moment, they in their pursuit of your voice of inspiration, you in your humility and honor to be heard as though God is speaking through you.

    Joe. Good thoughts. I’ll see what I can do… Keep spilling the light.
