When given the chance to try something new, are you hesitant or eager to take on the challenge?

Lacy Cunningham – Devoted to a Special Cause

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Friday, August 8th, 2014

When someone we care about with our entire being needs our special attention, we do everything in our power to be there for them in every possible way. We devote our time, we offer up prayers, we send positive thoughts, exhausting our mental, physical, emotional, and financial resources in the hopes of somehow bettering the situation. Realizing there might be another way she could provide even more, Lacy Cunningham committed herself to improving the life of the special someone who ... Continue Reading

Kristin Tracey – Owning Your Life

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

There are times when we need to let go and allow a situation to play out as it will. Perhaps we’ve become overwhelmed trying to plan every moment of a vacation, when we would actually benefit more from letting go of the reins and trying to micromanage every detail. There are situations, though, when a lack of control is completely undesirable: driving a car, choosing the company we keep, and managing our future. Realizing that her ability to give was ...

Taylor Nicholson – Reaching For Success

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Monday, August 4th, 2014

Sometimes great things fall right into our laps. We may find twenty dollars on the sidewalk or nab the perfect parking spot on that consistently packed street. Yet we have to actively “go for it” in order to enjoy the unexpected gift that’s been placed before us. We need to actually pick up that money. When presented with the means to better our day or even change our life, we have to grab on and make it worthwhile. Always working ... Continue Reading

Ashley Howry – Sharing Your Excitement

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Friday, August 1st, 2014

Sometimes when we have good news, we may struggle with whether or not to share it with others. We may want to burst with happiness about the amazing review our boss gave us at work or the new car we were finally able to afford. But it can often feel like you’ve just looked at the cast list, saw that you got the leading role, and noticed that you’re surrounded by disappointed people who didn’t get a part. Good news ...

Melody Wilson – The Gift of Change

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Sometimes gifts work in peculiar ways. When we receive a present, we usually feel grateful and humbled that someone took the time to think of us. But, the act of giving is often a gift to ourselves: seeing the smile on someone’s face as they tear off the wrapping or sensing how we’ve helped lighten a burden by offering up a gesture of encouragement. Whether tangible or not, and no matter the size, a gift not only lifts up the ... Continue Reading

Susanna Blanchard – Finding the Extraordinary in the Ordinary

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Monday, July 28th, 2014

Sometimes the things we see every day, no matter how exceptional or amazing they are, become ordinary to us. Flying in a plane becomes commonplace once we’ve done it a few times; the intricacies of the flowers in our yard are ignored; and the mother raising four kids and balancing a full time job is unimpressive because we’ve seen that story often. But, if we take a step back and truly take in the miracles of nature or appreciate the ... Continue Reading

Dee Dee Brimmage – Redefining ‘To Have It All’

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Friday, July 25th, 2014

What comes to mind when you hear the phrase ‘have it all’? For some it might be a big house, an expensive car, and a job they love. For others, it might be a spouse, a few kids, and the ability to work from home. And there are still others who would say it’s being single, owning a business, and traveling the world. The opinions are personal and the variations on ‘having it all’ are limitless, but in our society, ... Continue Reading

Lindsey Houser – Driven to Persevere

Life has a way of throwing a lot at us all at once. It often feels like any additional weight will surely sink the lifeboat we are desperately struggling to keep afloat.

Kyla and Anna McKelvey – Finding Fulfillment

Posted by Rodan + Fields on Monday, July 21st, 2014

We all are the authors of our own stories, but that doesn’t mean the first draft is always the one we want to write. Sometimes, we take a look at what we’ve written and decide it doesn’t fit. That's when we can pick up a pen, explore different options, and attempt to write a different ending. Knowing they both wanted a shift in direction, and hoping to venture onto a fresh page together, sisters Kyla and Anna McKelvey discovered they ... Continue Reading
