I do this through writing, speaking and teaching (or coaching) other writers and dreamers.

I have a degree in English and a Masters in Teaching, and I’m also the Editor-in-Chief of Prodigal Magazine, which I co-own with my husband.

I wrote this years ago—just a few months after my divorce was final, right as I was letting go of the last remnants of my old life. I never intended to share it. I forgot it about, in fact, and stumbled across it the other day. But I wanted to share it with you today as a reminder as you try to push through the pain that your pain may be trying to tell you something.



It’s been a hell of a wee...

More of Allison's books…
“Trusting takes a different kind of energy. It takes showing up, despite your moods or personal whims. It is not inventing opportunities out of nowhere, but being obedient to respond to them as they come across your path. It’s waking up, silencing insecurity, and taking steps forward even when you don’t know how it will turn out. It means adjusting expectations at times, when reality doesn’t look like the “dream” from your head. It is moving forward in anticipation, without knowing exactly what lies ahead.”
Allison Vesterfelt, The Chase: Thoughts on Quitting Your Job and Chasing Your Dreams

“...maybe the healthiest way to form expectations it to expect less in the specific and more in the general.”
Allison Vesterfelt, Packing Light: Thoughts on Living Life with Less Baggage

“Where your passion meets their need, that is your calling.”
