Annnnnd, in case you – like me :) – are still shopping for the holidays, I want to share FOUR *EASY* IDEAS for gifts that are FULL of hope and inspiration (things even MORE important this year than ever, aye?).

I wrote these books to meet you in the context of your everyday life – and to cultivate a life that feels good and does good. This year, there is MUCH that is being upended, the struggles are great for SO MANY, and peace can be hard to come by. Community looks different and we need to be inventive about how to stay connected to each other. This – and keeping the flames of hope, peace, and love aglow – is no easy task. But, it IS possible and VERY vital … more now than ever before.

I believe that through regular Places of Pause (10 guided PoPs in Live Ablaze and 40 in Soulfully Ablaze), you can live wholly and abundantly well, in all seasons, no matter what struggles or storms surround. Fuel your life, still the noise, discover your next steps, connect more with others, and live soulfully ablaze.

A video message from my heart to yours about this year’s Seeds Holiday Gift Guide.


Place of Pause

Be Still (Surrender)
Amidst any important to-do’s
– no matter how big or important –
take a moment to pause.
For now, your big act is to breathe,
to be still, to be silent.
To slow and surrender.
Whether for ten seconds or ten minutes.
Stay here, being and breathing.

This is 7 of 40 weekly PoPs and our focus is: SHARED HUMANITY.

I wonder … how might it alter our engagement with people portrayed in the news and on social media if we saw them not as strangers but as people connected to us?

Imagine the mighty movement
that would be unleashed if,
one by one,
we each opened up our minds and hearts
to those we don’t yet know, love,
or call friend or family.
We would see anew.
We would see these strangers as our own.
We would care about what matters to them.
This simple and humble opening shifts
what we think, talk about, and choose to do.
It changes everything.
It changes us.

For a longer and guided PoP on YouTube and to dive into this week’s PoP (our focus: “Shared Humanity”), check out the video series (it’s free) of 10-minute PoPs.



I share these short and sweet PoPs so you can FILL UP with peace and navigate this wild and crazy season with strength and courage. There is much clamoring for our attention 24-7 with LOUD, FEAR-based, PANIC-inducing messages – but let’s practice peace, together, amidst these stormy days.


My heart and prayers are with you, my friend.

You are loved.
You belong.
We belong to each other.
Let’s standTALL together and light up the world!

Have a blessed and beautyFULL day,

xo, -Sarah DT ❤️
