Women by nature love to give, support, and be of service to others. So much so that many find themselves at life transition moments "lost" in a role they have been living. Whether it be as a wife, mother, professional, or caregiver for a parent, we go "all-in". In service, we often forgo our own mind, body, spirit, and also our personal friendships in the process.  


Lady and the Tribe is written especially for women who have found themselves longing for more meaningful connections in their lives. It outlines how to find, nurture and build your own Tribe of women, a support system. If you already have a Tribe, the book also shares ways to strengthen those bonds.


Brenda is on a mission to help women discover and embody her passions and purpose through connection and create a life she can get excited about.  Learn more

Create Empowering Friendship Circles

Wives, mothers, and career women—we have all fallen victim to the silent epidemic that is, literally . . . letting ourselves go.  Not the makeup free, yoga pants, weight gain routine. Little by little, we have allowed our preferences, interests, and individuality to slip away until we no longer recognize ourselves outside of our role as wives, mothers, or professionals. Who we are has become what we do. 

In the process, our friendships have become the casualty of a “busy life” and lack consistency and depth. We were not created to go it alone.  In a world of social media, virtual offices, fitness apps, and online dating, we are detached and longing for connection. We have a gaping hole inside us that longs to be filled. How do we reclaim who we really are and fill this empty space that seemed to appear from nowhere?

The answer lies in our Tribe. Our best friends see us more clearly than we see ourselves and are representations and extensions of our individuality. They are our companions, cheerleaders, and counselors—always in our corner. They are the branches of our tree of life that lift and support us, so we can flourish. Our Tribe is the family with whom we choose to live our life . . . with no strings attached. 

Lady and the Tribe is a blueprint for building deep connections. As you read, you’ll be swept away on a journey of friendship as the author shares her own personal stories and those of other women. In the process, you’ll discover how to find, nurture, and deepen friendships and create a Tribe culture that is unique to you. 

We can become whole again through the power of connection. 

When three or more gather, we are Tribe.
