What is InSpiritry?

InSpiritry is the practice of Living an InSpirational Life that InSpires others!

In 2003, as a young woman with a passion for peace and poetry, Anne McCrady coined the word, InSpiritry. Having triumphed over life-theatening asthma and with a desire to make the world a better place, Anne recognized people are happiest and most productive when they value their own everyday, remarkable lives. She also knew was that people need to be reminded how InSpiring they are -- and how they can InSpire others.

Within months, she founded her company and began the journey that continues today. Built on Anne's success as a motivational speaker, award-winning poet, science enthusiast, social justice advocate, professional storyteller and civic leader, InSpiritry has expanded to include a wide range of initiatives that, just as Anne dreamed of, Put Words to Work for a Better World.  With concepts like Ideas- for-InSpired-LivingGood-to-Greater-Good, Wider Lens-Open Mind-Gentle Heart and Rekindling-the-Spirit, InSpiritryis transforming individuals, organizations and communities through empowered individuals, mission-reminded organizations, vibrant community efforts, celebrations of peace, acts of creative expression, STEAM education programs, spiritual exploration and progressive social change.

InSpiritry programs are based on concepts Anne calls her 7 C's

Community - connecting to self, nature, God & humanity
Compassion – having an open heart for others
Creativity – seeking new ways and new ideas
Collaboration – using the synergy of diverse voices
Consilience – embracing the connectedness of all knowledge
Courage – acting with values-based strength of character
Celebration - living with a sense of gratitude, optimism and joy 

As outreach, Anne posts a daily social media InSpiritry Question for the Day, audio messages called A Minute of InSpiritry, news-related poetry posts at Poet with a Press Pass as well as motivational posts on social media, along with her frequent speaking appearances. Those interested in InSpired Living can connect on FaceBook, Twitter and LinkedIn. In her own community, InSpiritry sponsors the Art of Peace celebration, the Summer Bus Stop Water program and Northeast Texas Poetry in Schoolsalong with other peace, literary and community events.
