This week I’m switching things up and having my friend and fellow self-help junkie, Jessica I. Lutz, share 5 books that have totally transformed her life.

I’m not going to lie, I was ridiculously excited to see what Jessica would share because she is an avid reader who happens to be interested in a lot of the same topics that I am. Believe me when I say her Instagram Feed (and Stories) is a treasure trove of resources and titles to add to your reading list. 

So here you have it, folks, 5 books that changed Jessica’s life for the better and why.

How to show up in sisterhood (with Emily Cassel)

Episode 25 of Some Kind of Magic: How to show up in sisterhood (with Emily Cassel) | #podcast #sisterhood #divinefeminine #empowerment #entrepreneurship #

I had the chance to sit down with Emily Cassel of the Sexy Soulful Success Podcast. Emily and I spent our time talking about sisterhood and how holding space for other women through things like sisterhood circles is a sacred act.

The episode begins with a discussion around masculine versus feminine energy, turns towards old paradigms for success and why they don’t work for women, moves into the power of relationships and how they challenge us to grow and evolve, and ends with all of the reasons why sisterhood and sisterhood circles are a tool for the empowerment of women and the world as a whole.

To say that I learned a lot from our conversation would be an understatement. And I hope you feel the same after listening to it yourself.

How to embrace radical self-care in your own life (with Monica Ballard) #podcast #selfcare #selflove #wellness #emotionalwellbeing #wellbeing #spirituality

Self-care is a conversation that I’ve been wanting to dive deep with and am thrilled to be talking about it with Monica Ballard, a massage therapist, reiki practitioner, yoga instructor, and fellow podcaster.

Monica shares about her her life and work, using her personal journey to inform her professional passions around radical self-care. 

We start our conversation with several book recommendations in the self-help genre, then weave our way through the concept of radical self-care as it relates to authenticity, awareness, integrity, and integration, and, finally, end on one of the most beautiful stories about crocodiles and the Never-Not-Broken Goddess. 

I found this entire conversation to be informative, thought-provoking, and profound and am truly excited to go back and listen again because of the nuggets of wisdom Monica shares throughout.
