Book Brenda

Hi, I'm Brenda

After raising and homeschooling my four children, I landed a cool job at a private University. I was grateful for that job but found I was restless and unfulfilled in my position. I felt I was not using my full potential or my gifts. I sought counsel from a professor at the University. He helped me tap into my life’s mission, my God-given gifts, and my passion. Now I love my work and feel I am exactly where I belong.

I want to come alongside others and help them discover their God-given gifts and live a more intentional life.

I now offer the topics listed below. I can also customize topics for you:

  • Living Intentionally-Making Goals Become Reality
  • Whole Food Plant-Based Eating- Making it a Lifestyle
  • Eating Healthy On a Budget
  • Discover Your Passion: Love Your Work
  • Stop Procrastinating & Just Do It
  • Where There Is No Vision Women Get Depressed
  • Prayer Journaling: Start Your Day With a Happy Heart
  • 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
  • Food For Life Courses (with cooking demonstrations)
  • Communication Skills for the Empowered Leader

I have also created Intentional Living Planners to help guide the Intentional Living & goal-setting process. Many employers purchase these for their staff.

My Health Transformation


Another cool accomplishment happened when I had a health transformation. Because of health issues, my doctor suggested a plant- based diet. As you can imagine, this West Virginia girl had a learning curve. I jumped in with both feet. As a result, I lost 60 pounds, and my doctor was able to take me off cholesterol meds and blood pressure meds. The rest is history. I feel great!

I now offer:

  • Wellness events for companies & non-profit organizations
  • Food for Life classes
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Supportive membership
  • Online courses
  • Wellness/cooking classes for children
  • Annual Wellness Weekend at Canaan Valley Resort in Davis WV
