Welcome to my website!

My name is Annette Bridges  and I’m an author, publisher and women’s retreat host. I’m also a cattle rancher’s wife, a college professor’s mom, an avid journal keeper, a word art guru and yes…a beach bum wannabe. My books, blogs and videos are filled with savvy, light-hearted wisdom – or so I’m told. I hope you enjoy some comfy pizzazz as you search for answers to the big questions in life. Get ready to laugh, cry and be inspired while you gain valuable insights about what it takes to be truly happy and feel purpose-filled.

“It’s not just about my WHAT, but my WHY!”

I’m looking for kindred spirits who need a friend, cheerleader or sister! 



I’ve walked through depression, self-condemnation, regret, disappointment and grief. I’ve felt alone. And I’ve struggled with the weight of burdens. I don’t want to feel alone anymore and I don’t want you to feel alone. Let’s care for our weary hearts, ask for help and encouragement, give ourselves permission to take a time-out and refuel ourselves with hope. ~Annette
