hey, love.

Hello and welcome! My name is Hillary McFarland and I am a Spirit-filled writer, maker & mentor for holy wild women. My purpose here (and prayer) is to offer a rich collection of words and art that will inspire and lead you towards a wiser, braver, deeper life. This intention guides everything I offer: my writing, visual storytelling, creative programs, workshops and one-on-one holistic life coaching.

My book The Secret Life of a Curvy Girl is now available! It is a faith-based body memoir & how-to-heal guide written for those who know the intensity and depth of body hatred and body shame. 

Later in September I am relaunching my well-loved program, Dear Artist. It is currently in pre-sale as I update it for relaunch. (Receive a preview chapter for free.) Learn more about my work, writing, photography, and other upcoming events below. And if you resonate with what you see, I have a cozy insider's list here.

Hello! Hillary here.

I'm a Spirit-filled writer, maker & mentor for artists, creative entrepreneurs, and other sensitive souls. Everything I offer and create is designed to guide you into a wiser, braver, and deeper life. Let's work one-on-one, or go solo with my DIY home-study programs. Curious for more?

The Wisdom Sessions

Use my one-on-one coaching sessions to help you launch your home-based-business, heal from your past, make peace with your body or transform your life. As a Spirit-led holistic life coach, I use the wisdom from above and creative applications to guide you into a spacious, sustainable & meaningful life. 

Dear Artist

If you're breathing, you're an artist. Your life is art. Your faith is art. For deep feelers, creatives, introverts and empaths, showing up will never not feel vulnerable. But in Dear Artist, learn how to craft a sacred creative rebellion that allows you to overcome shame, fear, and other maladies that hold you back.

Dear Writer: The Workshops (Coming in Autumn)

Luscious writing workshops with your choice of a virtual experience you can DIY at home, or live-and-in-person in Dallas & surrounding areas. I do not offer technical classes. I'm not a writing teacher, nor will you learn how to get published or how to get rich. But your words will come alive. So will you.

A few sweet messages from folks who have experienced my work...

Hillary, I have taken many online programs, and yours has by far been the most wise, cozy, supported program experience with a TON of content. Thank you.

I BEGAN MY JOURNEY WITH HILLARY BECAUSE I DECIDED TO LISTEN TO MY SOUL AND BEGIN A NEW BUSINESS — THE BIZ OF MY DREAMS. I FELT LIKE I NEEDED A LITTLE MORE GUIDANCE, I NEEDED SOMEONE TO HOLD UP A MIRROR AND SHOW ME THAT I HAD THE MAGIC WITHIN TO LEAP. SHE MADE ME FEEL AT HOME. OUR SESSIONS FELT LIKE TALKING TO A BEST FRIEND. AFTER OUR VERY FIRST CALL, I FOUND CONFIDENCE AND CLARITY. AFTER OUR FOURTH CALL? I WAS FILLING MY CALENDAR WITH CLIENTS AND MANIFESTING MAGIC. I WOULD NOT BE WHERE I AM TODAY WITHOUT HER MAGIC.

I didn’t really doubt you would anyway, but you really crafted something beautiful and holy and sacred with this. Thank you for following the call of your heart.
— Alisha
This class has brought me exactly what I’d wished for—a deeper commitment to my creative life and the in my bones knowing that is my sacred path and calling. Much love to you Hillary—thank you for this rich experience. I truly wish it wasn’t coming to a close.
— Tracie
...I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE PEACEFULNESS THAT SHE CREATED FOR ME, AND I FELT UNDERSTOOD, AND LOVED. AFTER OUR SESSION HILLARY SENT ME A WORKBOOK, AND A SUMMARY OF WHAT WE HAD TALKED ABOUT WITH SOME ADDITIONAL PROMPTS, AND ACTIVITIES. THIS HELPED ME TO GET GOING AND REALLY MADE A DIFFERENCE. I LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT IT. THANK YOU HILLARY!
