The meaning behind the Press Pause Project

Pause_Torrey Our Story

“When life starts accelerating
wildly out of control,

In 2011, a dear friend assembled a wonderfully authentic group of women for a series of evenings to be recognized as the “one little word club”. Each of us were to choose a word- a word to focus on, internalize, reflect upon and be accountable for as we all went about the daily lives we were uniquely drowning in. Whether it was our careers, marriages, children or the need to keep up with our social media image, we were all overwhelmed and in search of something to hold onto.


For one woman, the word was “PAUSE.” It was that word that stood out to this tribe of brave women. We all need a moment of Pause when life starts to spin wildly out of control.

Our Vision:

Torrey and Dawn know firsthand that women are disproportionately affected by anxiety and stress, so they are very consciously reaching out to women with their raw truth and authenticity of motherhood. They are committed to helping others in recognizing it’s ok to Press Pause when life seems to be all together, too much.


This is the beautiful beginning and first chapter of The Press Pause Project.
