Heading 1

Saturday May 2, 2020 • 9 AM - 11 AM CST • Virtual Attendance

Due to the impact of COVID-19, the original Thrive event had to be cancelled.  Now, we will have a virtual 2-hour event "quarantine edition".  Thrive will deliver tangible tips, strategies and advice on health, wellness and mindset so you can begin to thrive in every aspect your life! 
"Learning is an active process. We learn by doing.
Only knowledge that is used sticks in your mind".
- Dale Carnegie. 
Thrive is set up so you will not only be given the tools to change your life, but you will also be actively engaging with the speakers so when you leave the virtual event you will have a good understanding of the material presented. 
I quickly realized that I take massive action after I attend live events and this is how I knew I had to create this space for you to DO the work. I want you to understand that YOU are worthy and ready to THRIVE in your life. 

What is the Thrive Quarantine Edition?

Thrive is a virtual immersive training that will transform your mind and give you tools to transform your entire life. 
You will be led through different workshops with live in-person training in order to ensure you get the true benefit of each activity. You will be learning from myself, Julie Smith, PLUS I am brining in special guests who are leaders in their zone of genius to teach anything and everything it takes to THRIVE in your daily life from my four pillars of education. 
I wholeheartedly believe that in-person events are where the true transformation occurs. I have experienced this first hand and it is my passion to bring this opportunity to YOU. 
The best part is, this virtual event will benefit Feeding America for those that are in desperate need of food right now. 

Who should attend?

This event is for you if: 
  • You are a mom who wants an arsenal of skills to not only improve YOUR wellness, but create a ripple effect that transforms the wellness of your entire family. 
  • You are a woman who feels stuck in negative patterns and is ready to crate a new path. 
  • You are a woman who wants to connect with other like-minded individuals and create life-long friendships. 
  • You know a thing or two about wellness, but get completely overwhelmed when trying to put all the pieces together.

Rocky Bush & Hannah Kalk

Do you find yourself craving more of God? Have you ever discovered yourself at a place where your sinful heart, mind, and body are all in need of major transformation? We did too. In 2018, these questions spurred the foundation of an accountability group consisting of five women that were deeply rooted in Christ. As the group continued to meet, other women were asking questions and craving a similar type of community. For years, Rocky and Hannah had been feeling led to write a book but were lacking clarity on exactly where God was leading them. In a frozen yogurt shop in Round Rock, TX, it all became clear. We wanted to provide women with an opportunity to grow and transform in their walks with Christ surrounded by encouraging and God-fearing sisters. Before long, we had written a book, developed a website, and began offering resources to the Radiant Sisters community. We are blown away by what God has already done through this ministry and are humbled to be chosen to lead and love on our Radiant Sisters. We are grateful that you have taken the time to read our story and look forward to hearing how God has moved in your life.
