EMILY GREY

FULLY ALIVE:
The Collective

Introducing...

When I originally wrote this, it was Wednesday night before our big launch on Thursday morning, July 11th. It was 9:30pm and my house still smelled like the smoke from the flames of the meatballs I burned earlier that day when I thought I typed in 1 minute on the microwave, but accidentally typed in 10 minutes instead. 


I was in the middle of texting with my group of best friends, 3 of them moms of toddlers who feel trapped in their house during this season of life and the conversation was going as follows:
“Would it be bad if I take out all the batteries of her toys and tell her they are broken? I just can't anymore!”
“I can’t watch frozen for the millionth time.”
“Should I buy him vitamins to make up for the fact he has only eaten Mac and Cheese this week? I’m too tired, and I give up.”
“Should I be concerned she thinks it’s okay to pee in the yard like (dog’s name)? I’ll spare you guys the video.”


Just that morning, one of our customers had told me she was basically going through an existential crisis. She’ll be an empty nester in a few short years and she told me she had started to feel the tension of seemingly lacking a personal purpose now that her kids no longer “need” her. She stared at me with what felt like empty eyes and I felt the fear of change in her shaking voice.


Life. It’s not easy.  But do you ever feel like everyone else is handling it just a *wee* bit better than you?

Ready to take on life fully alive?

That next morning, I turned 34. And if I learned anything during my year of "33," it was this: every woman is fighting a daily battle. We’re all feeling the tension of wanting to live a more joyful + purpose life, while simultaneously wondering how the heck to make that happen in the midst of the daily grind.

Life feels like this wild ride, yet it feels monotonous at the same time: wake up, survive the day of balancing all the things, fight for a hot second for this illusive thing magazines keep calling “self care” in the fleeting moments before your eyes shut, and then wake up again the next day and do it all over again…all while feeling a wee bit anxious, a tad bit stressed, and a little…shall we call it…on an auto pilot of lack lusterness?

You might look around and think everyone has their shiitake together and is living life free of worry, and maybe some women are. But I’m not writing to that woman.

 I’m writing to the woman who has a pretty ridiculous monologue going on in her head that’s been bullying her for years.  

Welcome, friend.  You’re in good company with 99.99999999999% of women who have landed on this page.  

I’ve invited them to join me in serving up something new and FUN for you!  So what have we been cookin’ up for ya, friend?

I also happen to know some really kick ace women who share the same approach when it comes to showing up to serve YOU.

While I have several avenues through which I do that which you can read about here, my favorite thing to do - whether I’m in a group of close friends, or showing up on the internet for our online tribe is this:

Talk about the hard things we come up against as women and put them out in the open…

…addressing them with truth, a little kick in the pants inspiration, and hopefully with a good amount of shared laughs.

If not, "Hi, I’m Em!"
I’m a meatball burner + a professional hype girl for women.

have we met yet?

INTRODUCING:
Fully Alive - The Collective



I’ll describe it in super official terms like this: it’s as if a podcast, your best friend’s timely texts, some pretty designs, and an interactive anonymous call-in radio show had a baby…every single month.

Where is God when life gets hard?  I love leaning into the uncomfortable + sharing the redeeming love of a Jesus that weeps with us.  I especially love engaging with audiences that have been burned + hurt by Christians.

proof that i'm a professional hype girl (if you thought that wasn't a real job)

⁠I remember the day a few years ago when I was in a funk and I realized that I wouldn't just go to the gym once and think I was all set for strength training for the year. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
That...I wouldn't eat one meal and think I would be full for the week.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
So why in the heck wasn't I viewing things the same for my mind + heart?⁠ ⠀
⁠⠀
The last few years, I've learned that I have to be very intentional with what I feed my mind, and how I strengthen my heart.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
If you're feeling down or a little lack luster as of late and wondering where everyone else is finding this mysterious bucket full o' joy, you’re SO NOT ALONE!⁠⠀

And I - along with some of my favorite women in the world - are here to help!

I get asked this question quite a bit from women in my DM's, on podcast interviews, and from my closest friends.⁠⠀

"How do you stay inspired / encouraged?"

When you join as a member of The Fully Alive Collective, you’ll get the ultimate hookup each month:

- A 1 hour podcast interview taught workshop style by myself + an expert on that month’s topic. You’ll receive a PDF download with “3 Things to Try This Month,” aimed at moving the *joy* meter in your life. Don’t worry, these action steps won’t be super overwhelming!

- You’ll receive a text each Wednesday morning with an encouraging reminder. Something tells me each week it will be timely, and just what you need to hear.

- We’ll be throwing down with a 2 hour LIVE Q&A call where you’ll get to watch myself + our expert that month on a live video stream answer your anonymous questions. You’ll be able to submit your questions in advance and nothing’s off limits. It’s the ultimate “asking for a friend” opportunity to get advice on all your burning questions! Can’t make it live? No worries, you’ll receive a recording.

- Each month, you’ll find inspirational phone and computer backgrounds available for download in your membership area to keep you connected to that month’s theme + challenge.

- And if you’re local to the Raleigh, NC area, get ready for quarterly “in real life” meet ups with like-minded women!

It's going to be FUN!

If I was in an infomercial on TV right now, this is when I would add up the value of all these things and say that it’s worth $1,824,104 per month.  

And while I do think it’s worth that in my humble opinion (wink), we wanted to make this unbelievably accessible.

So, friend. It’s only $7.99 / month if you sign up today. Yes, that’s absolutely nuts-o’s and we’re not even worried about it. You’ll be grandfathered into that price as long as you want to stay a member.  

If that price leaves you straddling the fence of “Is it worth it…”

…well, friend “Let me work it” as Missy Elliott famously rapped in 2002.

Let me work it by spoiling the reveal of who our first month’s expert was:

Elyse Snipes, my personal therapist.

If you’ve been hanging out with me for a hot second online, then you already know who Elyse is.  

In short: she’s changed my life. And she’s about to change yours too.

Where is God when life gets hard?  I love leaning into the uncomfortable + sharing the redeeming love of a Jesus that weeps with us.  I especially love engaging with audiences that have been burned + hurt by Christians.

When you join today, you'll receive all of the content from our launch month with Elyse, as well as this month's content.  

If that’s not worth $7.99 to you, I hope that Grande Iced Vanilla Latte at Starbies, that Chick-fil-A #4 meal with Diet Coke, that 3 buck chuck from Trader Joes, or that dress from the Target clearance rack fulfills you.

Okay, that may have been a little harsh, but FRIEND. It’s time to treat your heart and mind health like your life depends on it. Because it does.

I’m going to let that sink in for a moment.

Your life - at least living the type of life you deeply desire to live - absolutely depends on the health of your heart and mind.  

And for Pete’s sake it’s time to SPICE UP YOUR LIFE as a famous crew of 5 British gals once said.

I’m not promising a perfect life if you sign up. That would be a total sham.

You will still burn the meatballs. You’ll still chuck Barbie or her scantily clad cousin Skipper at the stove. And you’ll still wrestle with life’s biggest questions.

But maybe…just maybe…you’ll realize that’s all okay. And in the midst of it all, you can be LIVING.  

And taking on life fully alive.

She’s going to help you re-write that negative internal monologue playing on repeat inside your head. And if you’ve ever worried about other peoples’ opinions of you, she’s about to give you a tool that is a total game changer.

Our "start here" theme for the Fully Alive Collective is CORE BELIEFS, and my workshop style interview with Elyse is absolute fire. let me repeat: fire. Fi-yaaaaa.

While I won’t spoil future months’ themes, know that they came from your input in our surveys. We hear you, and we’re ready to meet you in the mess.

You can cancel your membership at anytime, but know that you won’t want to do that. We’ve got an exciting road ahead of us, and we’re going to drive it together.

What will it look like for a collective group of women to decide to step into their power and live life fully alive?

BUCKLE UP is all I have to say about that!

It’s time to TELL A NEW STORY in our lives - for ourselves, for our children, for each other, and for the world.
