I had such an amazing experience last year as the Life Coach for the 2010 winner of the Portland Mama Makeover, Andrea Moore! She inspired me with her courage, her authenticity and dedication to healing.

The Portland Mama Makeover is a holistic, from the inside-out, makeover for one lucky mama each year. There are also mini-makeovers for runners-up. The businesses and practitioners who support the winner for the 8 weeks are some of the most talented and dedicated in Portland, OR.

I met this year’s winner, Carrie Hartley, last week to begin our series of 6 Life Coaching sessions. We quickly realized that our focus would be fostering a deeper sense of self-love and acceptance. In her words: “Baby steps… I am learning how to do this. Love myself, love myself, love myself…”

You can follow her experience on the Mama Makeover blog and also follow them on Facebook for on-going prizes.  It is sure to be an inspiring journey!
