Lead with Light registration is currently CLOSED.

Are You Ready to Lead?

We all have the potential to be great leaders, in different ways, but it's hard to know where to start. How do you figure out your leadership style or find opportunities to put those skills into practice? Or maybe you know you want to be the person other people can count on but get really drained and feel like you don't have anyone to lean on in the process.

Does any of this sound familiar?

  • You feel like you've been called to serve and lead others but don't know where to start.
  • You've always been the supportive friend for most people in your life, which is beautiful and you loved it, but find yourself constantly feeling drained.
  • You joined groups at school but quickly realized that you aren’t learning the skills you thought you would to make a big difference in the world.
  • You feel isolated and alone sometimes because you feel like people don’t really get your deep feelings and passion for things.
  • You've been called “emotional”, “dramatic”, “a dreamer”, “out there”, “overly optimistic” more times than you can remember.
  • You're ready to take action and put in the work to find your own purpose and path.


Imagine what could happen when....

You feel empowered AND have the skills to effectively and wholeheartedly lead, serve, and create positive influence and create change.

You feel confident in your ability to lead, in your voice and have clarity on how you want to share the message you have for the world.

You have the requirements to become a big sister mentor within the Virtual Big Sister Network 

You have the energy to be able to show up consistently for others without feeling drained or burned out.

You are clear on your mission & know the kind of impact you want to make in the lives of others.

You are ready to leverage the qualities that make you different and harness your superpowers!!

You find validity in your own voice and story and know how to use it to help people.

You feel confident in the knowledge and skills you have.

You know exactly how to build boundaries and know how to protect your energy.

Being a leader isn't about being the best, the first or even the smartest. 

Being a leader means you have the skills and confidence to add value to any space you walk into.

Being a leader is about allowing yourself to walk alongside others and inspire them.

Being a leader is about pushing yourself to be the best YOU can be.

Being a leader is about speaking your truth and honoring your own boundaries.



Sister, we've got your back. 

We want to empower you to lead.  

Lead with Light is a 5 week leadership training course that will teach you the skills YOU NEED to make a huge impact in the world.

Lead with Light was created with the guidance of the

Letters to My Little Sisters Leadership Philosophy and covers the following:

Self-discovery, mentorship, stengthening relationships, creating safe space in group settings, owning your authentic voice & story, awcknoledging baises, feminine leadership styles, empathy, what is takes to make a real impact in someones life and much much more.

We believe everyone has influence but not everyone knows how to use it.


We've been there before...

We've had something BIG inside of us but we didn't have a support structure or guidance to harness our influence for a really long time. 

It was difficult not having those "mirror moments" or guidance to help us hear our own voices clearly when we were feeling lost and confused about what to do next with our ideas or passion to help others.

We have felt the frustration of trying to channel that energy into leadership positions in clubs or organizations only to realize that they are a lot more drama than we signed up for and we didn’t have guidance to really take our leadership skills and put them into action .

Worst of all, our passion for growth & transformation made others (family or friends) uncomfortable so we've held ourselves back...


We've been there and created this space so you don't have to feel those things any more. We are here to help guide you, support you and provide the skills for you to blossom into the leader you are meant to be.

Letters to My little sisters llc

As a global community, we understand that we are powerful and affect each other like ripples in a pond, impacting the world in ways we may never see. A person's capacity to lead is rooted in their willingness to serve others. In order to create a more compassionate world, we must mold our leadership style to operate from the inside out.

Lead With Light is a live group leadership training course that will help you unlock the poweR inside you.  

Here Is what we WIll do in our 5 weeks together...

week 1

Defining Leadership & Finding your Why

Students will learn the definition of leadership and dive deep into their own “why”, the reason behind the desire to show up as a leader, or take this course through value reflection exercises. They will also have the opportunity to create their own mission statement.

week 2

Self Exploration, Identifying and creating personal boundaries as a leader

In order to show up as a strong leader you must have strong self-awareness. Students will have the opportunity to highlight meaningful relationships with themselves to effectively lead.


The influence others have on us, and the influences we have on others

Students will learn about the power of influence and develop a deeper awareness and understanding of their own influence. They will learn how they impact others, and have the opportunity to recieve feedback. Students will also learn how to create an environment that increases influence for a more compassionate world.


Empathy, Bias & Active Listening

 What hats do we wear as leaders? What should our heart posture be in order to serve, lead, and mentor effectively? Through this lesson, participants will learn how to effectively lead others from the heart, using empathy. We will discuss the difference of compassion, kindness and empathy and how to feel with and help others through hard times while also protecting yourself. We will cover learning active listening, navigating conflict, navigating bias and more.  


tools to Frame and sustain a mentor/mentee relationship

Students will learn how to integrate everything in the program with skills of facilitation, mentorship, organization and more to be fully effective as a leader. Students will also learn CBT techniques and other hard skills that will allow you to set the stage for a successful mentorship.



After going through the course you'll be able to join the Virtual Big Sister Network and apply to be a Big Sister Mentor to others in the network. It's a great opportunity to put your newly acquired leadership skills to use and truly use your story to help support someone else.

  • Get in the "hot seat" to learn your leadership style, and understand your energetic influence.

We strive to create strong leaders who are aware of their influence and use it for good.

To us, leadership is centered on living a life that is dynamic. 

Leaders can look like anyone.

We all have influence, no matter your age, gender, sexual orientation, or ethnicity.

We firmly believe YOU are a leader.

The power of our influence is not always deemed by a title or achievement.

The power of our leadership is created by the way we chose to utilize our voice and our story.



“It was such a fun experience! Through the group calls, and endless feedback, resources, and support, I have been able to rekindle the light in me which has been burnt out for too long. I loved the resources and tools I was given, and I can use them whenever I need which is pretty amazing! Most of all, it gave me the opportunity to meet a amazing girls who are authentic, kind, and fun. My new Sisters gave me a space to heal and be supported and loved. I am eternally grateful to this program for giving me the chance to build incredibly strong relationships not only with my Sisters but within myself, too. "

"Reaching out to Annabelle was honestly the best thing I've ever done. I had no idea how life changing it is to have someone believe in you at times when you can't find the strength to believe in yourself. She has taught me self-love from a whole new perspective, guided me through some of the hardest points in my life and has been the best accountability coach I could've ever asked for. She is a friend I know I could always count on to be there for me even when no one else is."

"Rayna has a intuitive gift for leadership, and has also worked through tremendous hardship in her life. She's been able to remain tender-hearted and loving to everyone she meets. I've watched her take the lessons she's learned in her hardest moments and use them to guide others with deep empathy. I admire her so much and her insight has added tremendous value to this program and the Letters To My Little Sisters Brand. She has inspired many young people in her life so far, including me. I'm so glad to have her teaching this course with me.

Annabelle & Rayna

HI THERE!! We’re Annabelle & Rayna !!

We met in 2018, working on a team of amazing young humans that launched “Choose Love”, a brand founded by Speaker Houston Kraft in Los Angeles, California.  We are both SUPER passionate about leadership, making a positive impact, and using our light to make the world a more compassionate place.

Together, we hope to bring our passions, experience and abundance of love to you to create an experience through this program where you feel seen, supported and encouraged to step out of your comfort zone and into your own voice. We believe this world needs what you’ve got! We are here to support that. We can't wait to meet you!



We, at Letters to My Little Sisters, believe that leadership is a careful balance of influence, impact, service, self-awareness, and empathy.

As a global community, we understand that we are powerful and affect each other like ripples in a pond, impacting the world in ways we may never see.

We know that every person is capable of making an impact and is in fact already doing so. 

Our Philosophy of Leadership is unique in that it calls upon the feminine to take the lead. In other words, our action, organization, and guiding principles are heart centered. Our action is based on empathy. A person's capacity to lead is rooted in their willingness to serve others. In order to create a more compassionate world, we must focus our leadership style to operate from the inside out.

We strive to create strong leaders, who are aware of their influence and use it for good. To us, leadership is centered on living a life that is dynamic. 

Leaders can look like anyone, we all have influence, no matter your age, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, we firmly believe YOU are a leader. The power of our influence is not always deemed by a title or achievement. The power of our leadership is created by the way we chose to utilize our voice and our story.

We believe that to be a whole-hearted leader, an individual needs to heal their own wounds, understand the power of vulnerability, and know how to be present with the people around them. Strong leaders understand the importance of embracing the challenging parts of life to find purpose and persevere. 

Leaders are just people who have learned how to harness their unique light to guide others on their journeys. Sister, we know you have a light, and we already believe in you. 

Allow us to guide you to your mission as an authentic leader.
