There’s a dream inside you waiting to come true…

Are you living your dream?

Or do you feel stuck? 

Are you numbing out with distractions while the dream inside you dies? 

Even if life has knocked you down, you’re not sure how to move forward, or you’re simply afraid, there is hope.

Living the Dream

Things I Learned From Doing My Bucket List

Are you living the dream? 

Inspirational experiences, woven together with practical wisdom, create a roadmap for adventure and living the story you want to tell. 

Hi, I’m April.


After achieving my dream of becoming a clinical psychologist, I thought I’d be on top of the world. I had earned my undergraduate degree from Texas A&M University and my PhD from the University of Kansas. I had completed my internship and post-doc at the VA and found rewarding opportunities for serving our nation’s military as a contractor for the Department of Defense. I built a thriving private practice doing deep and life-changing work. 

Though I was happy and successful, I remember thinking: Now what? Just sit in this little room for the next 30 years?

The biggest dream I’d had for my life turned out to be too small! 

So I took a two-year sabbatical and pursued another dream of going to ministry school, which in turn has unlocked one dream after another! 

I’ve learned the secrets of dreaming BIG and pursuing the impossible. Now, it is my pleasure to share these secrets with others. Drawing on tools I learned as a psychologist, I teach people how to break through fear and other obstacles to cultivate a life of hope, passion, and adventure!

I wished to live deliberately…and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

– Henry David Thoreau
