Dear Family and Friends!

I just wanted to jot a quick note and let you know that by the grace of God I was able to finish the Avon Walk 39. 3 miles yesterday! Yep, I am EXHAUSTED today but very very grateful!

Walking symbolicaly for those I love who are battling this beast and in honor of a few of my family and friends who battled valiantly but are now with the Lord ... how could I NOT walk? I am grateful to have had the experience, to meet new friends who have my respect ... yes, for walking long miles but the real heroes I met were those that are currently battling but oh wow ... they walked the same miles I did. Yikes!

I so very much appreciate for those of you who prayed for me, who financially supported me, who encouraged me and who trained with me! Sarah, Nancy, Ruth and Rene were my training buddies this year and walked alot of long hot miles with me! Especially Sarah who walked 26.2 miles with me this weekend! Also, to my Walker-Talkers that spent time on the phone with me from a distance to keep me going!

Dr. Lori and Flora kept my body working for me through chiropractic care, Pilates and massage therapy (North Ranch Chiropractic)! Future Running Track kept my feet in excellent shoes, Lani took care of my toes and Weslake Swim and Tennis allowed me to stop periodically to replinish with water and a rest! All appreciated!

Special thanks to Dennis, Damon, Michele and Jayden who joined me for the weekend to encourage, cheer, follow the route and find me/us, bring iced coffee :), hug, bless bless bless. And to Kyle and Steph who kept in touch by phone and text ... who wished they could be with us and we wished they could be too ... but thank the Lord for phones!  Loved those texts and emails by other family and friends this weekend ... kept me going! Thank you!

So ... in the last 2 years I have now seen nearly 80 miles of streets and beauty in Santa Barbara and Carpenteria. So very very grateful the Lord allowed my body to cooperate and walk the miles and for each woman I met along the way. The stories were amazing ... made me even more resolute to do MY part to help save lives and hearts and BEAT cancer. ALL kinds of cancer.
  • The week before the event I lost a friend to breast cancer. Kathy ... a godly woman and a warrior.
  • The week before the event I had another friend re-diagnosed with cancer after being cancer free for 27 years. Carolyn ... our boys church "California Grandma" growing up.
  • The day before the event our niece Amber (31) had a 6 hour surgery for advanced colon cancer.
How could I NOT walk? How can we not work together to end this disease? Let's continue!
Please continue to pray for those I walked for who are SURVIVORS and continue to battle:
We pray for healing!! 

* Amber * Amy * Brooklyn * Carolyn * Haewon * J * Margaret * Ruthie * Sally *

Please continue to pray for the families of those who have lost their cancer battles this year that we love: 

* Bill * Jim * Kathy * Ina*

Again my heart felt thanks for helping me in so many ways! Together our donations will help researchers, it will help women who cannot afford mammograms to get them, etc. AWESOME Team you are!

Love and blessings to each of you!
Kathleen :)
  PS So grateful my oncologist on Friday before I left for the Avon Walk gave me the news that there was no indication of cancer in my hip exrays. Praise the Lord! I appreciate you continuing to pray I remain cancer free. Much work to do!

Salmon Jumping

A few years ago my husband and I were blessed to see the realization of a life-long dream … to take both sets of our parents on a cruise to Alaska.  It was beyond amazing to see the orchestration that only God could have done as we moved from port to port, event to event. Wonderful!

One of the many AMAZING sights we saw by “accident” (a God-incident in my heart for sure) was we “happened” upon this river and bridge where the salmon were battling up stream … UP the river and the huge falls to get back to the site of their origin. Their home. Hmmm.   They start at the sea!

As I was reading the following snippet from an email about the largest evangelistic outreach in the history of the Billy Graham Association which was sent today from Franklin Graham it reminded me of the Salmon. See if you can figure out why … 

“Our problems in this country are so huge that I believe we need a massive change to help stem the rising tide of evil. This is why moral, heartfelt transformation is really the only solution to the deadly and dangerous ills that are plaguing our nation. The Scripture says we need a new heart, not new legislation or regulations. “I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you” (Ezekiel 36:26). 

New hearts are made as men and women respond to the preaching of the Gospel of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection. The Holy Spirit opens hearts and minds to believe in the Savior, and with repentance from sins people become new creations in Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17). Moral reformation can then happen because there has been spiritual transformation.

Jesus said, “I have come that they may have life … more abundantly” (John 10:10). This is the message of the Gospel, and we are called by God to spread this Good News to our neighbors, our nation, and a needy world. I hope you will join us. In this violent, sin-sick world, our only hope is the Prince of Peace”  Franklin Graham, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Salmon do instinctively what we as humans BATTLE. They swim UPSTREAM, AGAINST the tide. Do we?
Well, we are called to do exactly that by scripture as followers of Jesus …  not to CONFORM to the world as this is not our home. Heaven is our home. We are to SWIM UPSTREAM to be different!  Check it out:

John 17:15-18 ESV “I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world.”

Romans 12:2  (NIV) “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

We are to be influencers of this world for Christ. We are to resist being influenced BY this world. Does this take discipline? (The “D” word that often gets a bad rap) Yes, it takes discipline. It takes willingness to swim upstream (as it does Salmon) and it needs to mean more to obey our Master (Jesus) than to worry about what other people think.  It takes putting IN the Word of God (using the discipline of reading and studying the Word of God) to transform our hearts from our natural bent of evil. We need to resist our bent to be a “follower of our sin nature and of bad influence” and be the influencer … not the influencee.

Is it easy to swim upstream, be different and not mindlessly follow the direction of the culture? (Or worse yet … knowingly run toward sin?) No, it is not easy. But we are called to “be holy as He is holy” 1 Peter 1:13-16.  If that goal for us was out of reach, as it may seem at times, our loving Father would not have asked us to do so. He will give us everything we need to obey Him. The bigger challenge is not this command to be holy (not a suggestion) but  surrendering to Him and being willing to obey Him … even if it isn’t comfortable or compliant with our culture or popular with friends? (Both Christians and those not in the Faith.) That is the BIGGER question we must wrestle with as Followers of Jesus.

Together Sisters (and Brothers) … let us be WILLING to obey and swim upstream … like the salmon. They go to great lengths to do so. How willing are we to do so?

Simple ideas but practical:  Protect our minds! Garbage In / Garbage Out!

  •  Turn the TV channel!  Choose to leave the room. Turn off the program. Maybe carefully choose what would be spiritually edifying to watch in the first place? Want better and cleaner programming on the TV? Let your fingers do the walking and turn it off or turn the channel. They are able to track your watching habits (don't ask me how) and money/ratings speak.    Philippians 4:8 “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. “ NLT                                         
Do my choices ... do your choices line up with Phillipians 4:8?
  • Offensively put IN ideas, thoughts, stories, pictures that would be honoring to our Father. Defensively draw boundaries around and keep OUT those that we wouldn’t want to share directly with Jesus sitting beside us!  How about having a Quiet Time and reading through the Bible in a year, or just deciding to read Psalms during Lent to get started or doing Bible study to replace your favorite TV show if you know it is not honoring to the Lord? Read a great book! Pick up the phone and call to encourage someone.  You and I only have so many hours on this planet ... let's use them wisely. Purposefully!

  • Are you a parent? How about doing the same thing with those children that the Lord entrusted you with? What books are they reading? What games are they playing? What movies, TV programs and computer sites are they seeing?  Think it doesn’t affect them? Don’t kid yourself!  At the end of the day as they stand before their Maker and Father … want them to be godly people? Be responsible parents and while they are still in your care … help them learn to make godly decisions. Don’t throw them out to the culture wolves to make their own decisions as children (even teens) and hope they will survive. They likely will not. Then … when we as parents stand before the Lord … will we truly be able to say we did our BEST to help them learn to be HOLY as He is Holy? Hmmm.  

       Our children need to learn how to swim upstream like Salmon.  While they are under our care if we help them make wise, godly decisions when young then as they are teens, and we need to let them “take the steering wheel” little more by little more, they have a much better chance of surviving the oncoming world and becoming godly influencers!

Well, enough about fish!  Swim ladies and gentlemen! Isaiah 41:10 says “Fear not for I am with you. Be not afraid for I am your God! I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with my victorious hand.” He will give you everything you need to help you swim upstream as a woman (man) or a parent. No giving up!

How is your Hope and Joy Level this Christmas Season?

Hope. Hmmm. Sometimes illusive. Sometimes sure. Sometimes mysteriously just out of reach. Hopelessness can be a dull sick feeling in the pit of your stomach, unidentifiable but it is there.

How about you? Has there been a lack of hope in your life lately? Maybe someone you love is ill? Maybe you are concerned about finances or a relationship has gone south? Maybe the News is getting you down?

Proverbs 13:12   “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a dream fulfilled is a tree of life”. New Living Translation

As I was researching this verse I Googled and found this on the Nehemiah Project website: 

“Hope is an anticipation of a desired future.  Hope keeps you going when nothing around you seems to work.  Hope is the heartbeat of future dreams and goals.  When you have no hope, no matter how realistic your goals or how rewarding the promise, you will not continue to persevere.  You will quit.
What causes our hopes to be deferred?  Our hope is deferred when we put our hope in the wrong thing.  Whenever our hope is bound by anything tangible it is at risk of being deferred.  We live in a sinful world and no matter how comprehensive our plans, how righteous our walk or how worthy our goals, they will not always come together the way we envision them or when we plan.  Our hope must always be based on the unchanging nature and character of Jesus Christ.”

Wow. Yes! A resounding Yes!  

Foundations. What foundations do I … do you … base your life on? What do we base our hope on? If our hope to be solid and unshakable as Believers we can base our hope ONLY on our Lord Jesus Christ. The Truth of His Word can be the only foundation … the only grid on which to place our hopes and dreams and goals and to submit to His sovereignty in our lives. 

So, even though there seems to be plenty of hopelessness to go around right now this is the PERFECT time of year to consider our foundations and the very soil we “sink our roots” into which feeds and forms our values, beliefs, attitudes, thoughts, our very lives! Want to go “back” to a simpler time? Let’s you and I go back to the foundations of our beliefs during the Christmas season. Remember the simplicity of Jesus, the Son of God, coming in the form of a baby as the Savior and Messiah of … well, you and I.   

So, if I may … It has been scientifically proven that we cannot mentally focus on two things at once such as fear and trust, joy and hopelessness, anger and surrender, etc.  We are told in Philippians 4:8  “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”  Instead of focusing on why we are feeling hopeless what about if we CHOOSE to focus on what we are told to in Philippians 4:8? What if we CHOOSE to focus on Jesus (after all it is Christmas season … let’s focus on what we should be year round!J )  What if we CHOOSE to focus on why we are grateful rather than hopeless or what we have to be joyful about rather than why we are depressed or why we are  blessed instead of why we are afraid? Hey! Remember that Blessings Journals we have “talked about” in past editions of Gentle Nudgings?  

(Gift #1: How about buying a special Blessings Journal for yourself for a personal Christmas Gift to YOU? )

Let’s choose to be proactive about CHOOSING Hope, Joy and focusing on the grace of Jesus and all the blessings He has poured into our lives instead of allowing our minds to drift down a lazy (and unproductive) river of hopelessness and depression. The enemy of our souls loves to destroy, depress and discourage. We can CHOOSE to both obey our Lord Jesus and His Word and defend against the enemy by CHOOSING to discipline our minds and our hearts to focus on what is right about our lives and being grateful! 

(Gift #2:  Choose a New Attitude focusing on and being changed by Truth and Jesus starting December of 2012!)   

Simplify your Christmas Season this year!  Give yourself a gift!  Choose to focus on Hope, Joy and your Savior Jesus!  
 2013 can really be a very different year!  How about beginning today!  

Two verses for us to meditate on together as we are reflecting on what you are "reflecting" in life. (from

  1. Romans 12:2
    Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

  2. 2 Corinthians 3:18
    And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
 We get to choose what we think on and if we obey the Word of God. What and WHO we reflect because of those choices is one thing we need to pay attention to as Disciples of Jesus Christ, as His ambassadors. If our hope is in ourselves, other people, work, politics, our health, our figure, our perfectly decorated home or coming up with the perfect Christmas gift, event or card ... we will be sorely disappointed at some juncture. If on the other hand we are transformed by the renewing of our mind by staying in His Word daily, memorizing His Word, choosing to put all our HOPE on Him and being disciplined to stay focused then the JOY that comes from that lifestyle WILL reflect on our faces, in our eyes and authentic smiles!   

 If someone looks, really looks, at us will they say ... Oh!  "She has her Father's eyes"  as Amy Grant's song says? I pray so for both of us!  Let's reflect our Heavenly Father's eyes this Christmas season and more daily until we step into eternity with Him!

39.3 miles WALKED for the AVON Walk for (against) breast cancer! Thank you for your help!

Well, you may or may not know yet but  with the grace of God and the sweet fellowship of some new friends I made the 39.3 mile Avon walk for (I think AGAINST) breast cancer a weekend ago!! Whoo Hoo! 

I intended to blog soon thereafter but was in preparation to leave for a Coaching Conference and class in Florida and I ran out of time! I learned so much for my coaching practice and had the privilege of speaking for the coaches there from all over the USA! Special time with great new friends!

The Team the Lord brought together to walk the walk! (I am in the cap) This was the last of the 2nd day 13 miles and the end of the 39.3 mile, two day walk!
Back to the Avon Walk!  

My TWO hats! My training hat (worn out like me but still with a "little bling!") and the AVON Walk hat my main training Sister Sarah lent me for this special event! Here I go!
Thank you for supporting me in this goal of ours as together, you and I, worked against a formidable foe, breast cancer.  Whether you prayed, talked me through trainings on the phone, walked with me in training (Coaching Moment: Make sure to DO the training for your goals along the way BEFORE the day of your "Event" so you'll be ready!), gave financially to the goal or came to Santa Barbara to cheer and encourage I appreciate(d) you and needed your love, support and encouragement to finish the goal! I received encouragement via emails, cards, notes, phone calls, text messages, a balloon bouquet ... in more ways than you can imagine!

 We started the day in Santa Barbara
 6:00 a.m. on the Beach in Santa   Barbara! 
Sunrise on the Beach in Santa Barbara! Beautiful!

                          Ready to go!  Yep, a little ... nervous? Oh, it will be fun!

 I thought of you as I giggled watching groups of women with pink wigs, tu-tus and dancing to the music with their pom poms! I smiled as we passed motor cycle gang folk sporting pink facial hair at the intersections. We waved to the little ones out on their lawns in the "jammies" and the families handing out sweets, water or high fives along the route in Santa Barbara and Carpenteria! What an amazing time!

I mentioned to one of my new friends Maria, as we walked along at some point, how WONDERFUL it would be if in real life, every day we all had people along our "route" of life high-fiving us, encouraging us, calling out to us that we could do it! Wouldn't that BE FANTASTIC and ... why can't we be those people to those the Lord put into our lives? (Coaching Moment: Yes we can and we shall!)

All along the route Dennis would surprise me ( but it blessed all of us :) with signs of encouragement on the Note Pad! So very fun for us as it was like the game of  "finding Waldo" as we looked for him around every corner!  Iced coffee was one of my personal favorite "rest stops" and I think he had several "takers" as other women begged for their own cup! I absolutely couldn't have done it without him, from the beginning of my commitment to train to the very last mile! 

Damon, Michele and our little Jayden came up for the weekend to cheer me along as well and that was sure fun and meant so much! Nothing like having your own cheering section and I had the privilege of sharing the encouragement with my other "Team" members that the Lord brought along! We enjoyed a little beach/ocean time after the event as the Lord provided a home for rent exactly ONE block from the beach and ONE block from the end of the Avon Walk! (WONDERFUL home ... let me know if you want that location to stay! Happy to pass it along!) A God thing for sure! Kyle and Steph were a text and phone call away as we shared several times during the weekend as well as they kept up with where I was and offered their long distance cheers! :)  I am one very very blessed wife, Mom, Mom-in-law and Granma to have such love showered on me! I enjoyed the texts and phone calls from our Moms and Dad, siblings and spouses, nieces/nephews and friends too!
Our friends Christine and Bob met us at one of the rest stops to cheer us along as well and it was such a blessing to have them join us! :)   

As we prayed together ( you and I) prior to the event for whoever the Lord might have for me to encourage in some way ... the Lord answered our prayers and graciously provided some sweet walking friends! We walked together, we prayed together, we wept together, we laughed together, we HURT together, we held each other up and cared for each other. We shared life stories and deep hurts. Two were from Chicago and three from Southern California and each had an amazing story. Two of us were survivors, two had done this walk a couple of times, several were walking for friends and family. The toughest for me was those that were walking for their Sisters. One has TWO, yes TWO sisters currently battling breast cancer. One sister got a mammogram because she was over 40 and hadn't yet. She found out she had breast cancer on both sides and had to have a double mastectomy.  She promptly insisted her sisters (5 girls in all if I am remembering correctly) get mammograms. The youngest (under duress) got a mammogram and found she not only had cancer in both breasts and her lymph system but it was already in her bones and now she is fighting for her life. I got to meet these two brave women, hug their necks and whisper we are praying for them encouraging them to battle on. Who knew how MUCH my heart would be GRIPPED by the stories I heard and the NEED for prayer for these precious women AND for the need for mammograms. Of course, a mammogram saved my life ... and thus may I encourage YOU to get yours this Breast Cancer Awareness month! Get er' done gals! It will give you a baseline if nothing else. It may save your life someday as it did mine.

 I got to share my heart about Jesus with several along the route! What a blessing! He is alive!!
My friend Maria and I did the entire 39.3 miles together, well ... after we found her at mile 5 or so and gather her up into our little group! She being 28 years old had LOTS of energy and I am so grateful we walked together as she kept us moving! :) We came over the last hill to see a "sea of pink tents" at the Wellness Village and although our toes (and hips, etc.) were hurting we were GRATEFUL to have gone the distance for sure!  

 I was told by my AVON walk representative that together, YOU and I, raised enough money to allow 19-20 women who would not be able to get mammograms to have this life-saving medical procedure! Now THAT blesses my heart! CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU for working with me in this endeavor! 

No kidding! A WORTHY cause! 

At the end of the day and the event ... I was blessed, encouraged, exhausted, my feet were very sore, my heart was super FULL, my eyes were wet with tears and my mind was alive with ideas and fresh memories. I was amazed, excited, sad,  determined ... oh, so full of prayers for some I met and some I didn't. The peace was overwhelming and almost palpable!

It reminded me the need to encourage even more women and men to come see Joni Eareckson Tada at our event October13th at church where she will share about her breast cancer journey and the HOPE she has in the Lord! Where faith and life-heart- aches meet in the middle and Jesus alone makes the difference.  

Please join us if you are local and register at as we have limited seating (due by October  8th). If you cannot I urge you to go to and consider ordering her brand new DVD about her Cancer Journey. I spent most of yesterday watching, re-winding, watching ... AWESOME DVDs. Very educational as well!

At the end of the walk they had a moving closing ceremony. They gave everyone a T-shirt that walked but the survivors that walked got a special t-shirt (see left) and everyone was introduced as groups.  When our group walked up to the front of the event people were cheering, high-fiving us, pom poms were waving, music was playing! Yes, I was crying like a baby.

 It was SO very moving but you know what?

I felt pretty much the same feeling when I was going right through the middle of the battle with breast cancer with all the love, meals, visits, cards, emails, flowers, gifts, notes, balloons, phone calls, text messages, Caring Bridge posts and especially the prayers!  You all might as well have been hooting and hollering and cheering and high- fiving me! Those hugs (literally and figuratively) were precious and I will FOREVER be in your debt and will remember always!

I am blessed to have each of you in my life!

Blessings and hugs and thanks for reading this loooong blog!

Do You Like the Mountains? Want to Follow this Life Coaching Blog ?

Do you like the Mountains?

  * By the way ... I neglected to add the "Follow" feature when I debuted my first post. Should you desire to know when my blogs post you can sign up to be notified! See the side bar to the right if you are interested.

* * * * * * * * * * 
Some days walking has been a journey of peering into my heart.  Especially when I am walking alone.  Lately I have had SUCH fun walking with some girlfriends and always enjoy those evening walks with my husband and our little Ber pup but when I am alone … I am not alone. :) My walks alone are more prayer walks and I do enjoy sharing my heart and requests with my King and Lord and listening.  Listening ? Oh, yes,  in my heart.  He works on me transforming my heart. Yes, please! I pray He never stops until I go Home to be with Him in Heaven!

It occurred to me one day when out walking alone looking at the Santa Monica Mountains in my area and I was  reflecting on missing my Colorado Rocky Mountains and the mesas in New Mexico where I grew up.   All of the sudden it occurred to me that I should perhaps practice what I preach? (Novel idea don’t you think? :) ) Perhaps, in obedience to my Lord, I should be “content where I am planted.” I can see the Santa Monica mountain range ... I have much to be thankful for!

Philippians 4:11 New American Standard Bible “Not that I speak from want, for I have learned to be content in whatever circumstances I am.” 

Content: Am I? Are you? We are called to be as we submit to His plan for our lives and rest in that plan and trust Him.  He is our loving Father!  So … there is beauty (incredible beauty!) in all the types of mountains the Lord has created and personally mountains ARE my thing! IF I am focused on finding beauty in these local "mountains" then I will see it! If I am focused on historically thinking back on the more grandeous beauty of the past mountains in my life then I am anything but content! Disobedience and grumbling? Yep!  I need to make sure I am THANKING Him for planting me right where I am and not be complaining about what I do not see ... the Rocky Mountains!  I am not the "PLANTER" ... I am the "PLANTEE." Pretty presumptuous to complain about where He sovereignly PUT /PLANTED me don't you think? "Be Grateful Shortcake" is what I hear in my heart!  Be content!

(Below: Dennis and I went to the top of Pike's Peak mountain when we were in Colorado for our niece and now-nephew's wedding this summer! Never had been there! Pretty spectacular!)      

Santa Monica Mountains! Gorgeous too!

Psalm 121 NLB

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

I look up to the mountains—
    does my help come from there?
My help comes from the Lord,
    who made heaven and earth!
He will not let you stumble;
    the one who watches over you will not slumber.
Indeed, he who watches over Israel
    never slumbers or sleeps.
The Lord himself watches over you!
    The Lord stands beside you as your protective shade.
The sun will not harm you by day,
    nor the moon at night.
The Lord keeps you from all harm
    and watches over your life.
The Lord keeps watch over you as you come and go,
    both now and forever.

One of my favorite verses! Enjoy where you are planted today! You are "there" on purpose! His purpose!
