Welcome to Mind the Body Soul!  I have a passion for personal and spiritual growth and am a lover of all things creative.  My passions include music, writing & editing, cooking & healthy eating, jewelry design, painting, real estate and architecture … the list goes on.  I am a true believer in the book Refuse to Choose.  God has blessed me with many interests and talents, and I intend to use them all!

In pursuit of healthier eating habits without giving up my love of cooking, I am thrilled to be a representative of Wildtree products – organic, non-GMO, gluten free, peanut free … and delicious!  See my website at www.mywildtree.com/suzettewelling to learn more.  You will also find recipes and helpful tips on this website, under Nutrition / Cooking.

I believe that inner beauty is most important; however, I also believe that when a woman feels good about how she looks on the outside, it affects every aspect of her life in a positive way.  For over eight years I have used Mary Kay cosmetic and skin care products and helped others to learn how to take the best care of their skin and apply quality makeup in a tasteful way.  You will find information and helpful tips under the Beauty category.

Another passion I have is making a difference for children, and I am excited to have joined PACE Center for Girls as their Business Manager.  What a blessing to be with an organization that makes a difference for young girls in need!  You will find information about this and other worthy causes under Causes for Women and Children.

I am also excited to have started an online book club of sorts on this site, for women who would like to have a Transformative 2014 and beyond.  Recently I began reading Sarah Ban Breathnach’s book, Simple Abundance:  A Day Book of Comfort & Joy.  Like so many things that I read, I discovered Sarah’s book through Oprah.  Oprah leads us to so many books of spiritual awakening, doesn’t she?  Sarah’s book was first published in 1996, but it is still relevant today.  It is written as an inspirational daily reading.  One description notes, “Simple Abundance shows you how your daily life can be an expression of your authentic self … leading you to a happier, more fulfilling and contented way of being.”

As I began reading through her book, I started thinking how wonderful it would be if we women, as a collaborative group, read this book together beginning January first, as it is intended, and had a forum where we could share our insights from our daily readings. I would like to provide that forum here on my blog, and I hope that you all will join me.  Follow the Transforming 2014 category at the right to join us!
