Welcome to The Main Thing Podcast! Our wise guest, Connie Cruthirds, is a storyteller, photo-journeyist, and weaver of words. She writes in the style of Mary Oliver and David Whyte, helping readers discover the intriguing life within us all. Her work has been featured in Beyond Knowing, Huffington Post, A Sacred Presence, and Lifeline.
Her new book, “The Current” is a collection of soulful poetry and beautiful illustrations. When not writing prose poetry, Connie is a certified creative coach who’s mission is to help people find their way through life.
Much like her supposed-cousin, Mark Twain, Connie lives on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River, where the currents of life lap past her door. She is married with two adult children.
Over the next 9 minutes, you will discover why Connie Cruthirds is one of the wisest people I know.
