When I was a young girl, I wanted to be a veterinarian, but I was shy and lacked the self confidence that I have now. Over the years, I recognized that I had an intuitive understanding of my spirituality and I was fortunate to have four grandparents that were great wisdom teachers who influenced my young life. My grandparents’ wisdom planted a seed that helped me realize my gifts and summon the confidence to pursue a fulfilling path as an adult.
It wasn’t until I was in my mid-twenties, when my mom died, that I would use the tools I was taught and lean in on my spirituality. After suddenly losing my mom, I realized the fragility of life, and became reconnected with a curiosity about my purpose and my contributions to the world. A few years later, newly married and with my first child, I joined a women’s circle and found exactly what I was looking for to feed my soul in a way that was positive and nourishing.
After several years of being a participant, I was invited to lead a group on my own. I accepted the invitation, although reluctantly, and unknowingly took the first step in changing the course of my life. This invitation led me back to school to pursue a Masters degree while raising four small children.
Unlocking this side of me brought upon the choice to be strong, gave me confidence, and a greater sense of joy. I now live out this passion by connecting with others through my teaching, while living in New Jersey with my husband, children and two dogs.
How it all began
Contemplating wise words from great thinkers at a young age became an important practice for Pam. When she started teaching and leading groups, she began handing out inspirational quotes on slips of paper. Reading them together became her signature spiritual exercise. Years later she would place a big bowl of quotes on her daughter’s desk to offer her encouragement during a bumpy transition to high school. This invitation led to creating a business selling quotes in small jars.
Pam is the Co-Founder of Meredith's Jars of Joy, LLC with her oldest daughter, Meredith, and has spent the last decade helping readers to spiritually connect through this simple tool. Pam gives talks on The Power of Words. She teaches others that what we say and how we choose our words can make all the difference.
