    Get excited for your friends' successes! Natalie Hill Jensen shares what's on her mind

    Good girl talk is more than just talk. When we really share, woman to woman, those exchanges have the ability to shape us, change us, and push us forward. So essentially, you could argue, good girl talk is about growth. It's a truth at the center of our series, On My Mind, where we invite women you know, love, and admire to crack it open and share whatever thought is ruminating in their mind and their heart.

    Natalie Hill Jensen thrives on connection. We first got to know Natalie through her blog, “Mormon in Manhattan,” an online journal of her dating adventures while she was living a glittery New York life and Broadway career. She’s an actress, and her most recent film project, “Sweet on You,” was our rom-com fix of 2023.

    As her husband Alex took a new position with the Dallas, Mavericks, she embraced a line on her resume: “Dallas housewife. That’s a compliment. I’m loving it. I’m honored. I love Dallas.”

    You know those magical moments when everything else in life fades away, and it's just you and the task at hand? You're so dialed in on a project or a moment that you lose track of time and think of nothing else. It's called the flow state, and it has some pretty serious health benefits.
