I opened Muddy Waters Yoga Studio in May 2017 with the hopes of creating a place for people to find ease amidst the muddy waters of life. What I didn’t know then was that not only would this sweet studio become a place of refuge for so many, but it would become a place where stories could be told. 

If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my work, it’s that we all have a story. There’s a story in everyone’s eyes that when explored shows depths that no one even knew existed. That’s where this story begins. It’s these stories that shape us. 

When I look back to my mud, the hard times in my life, those are the moments that shaped me into someone of depth and taught me lessons that I couldn’t see when I was in it, when it was too muddy. The lessons, the character, the depth thats the lotus. 

One of my life’s purposes is to teach. And my hope is that this book teaches you a few things.

I hope it teaches you that you’re not alone.
I hope it teaches you that we’re all more alike than we are different.
I hope it teaches you to find ease in muddy waters. 

Here’s where you come in. I would be honored and privileged if you would help me write this book. It’s your stories that inspired this idea, and I want to share them. I’m asking you to share your story. 

The Mud: A hard time in your life. 

The Lotus: What you learned from that experience. How it shaped you. How your life changed for the better. 

A panel will go through each and every story. We will notify you if your story will included in the book.
