About Liv Dooley

Liv Dooley is a novelist and a National Female Empowerment Strategist for women of all ages. As a former teacher, she understands how to scaffold information for young ladies from elementary school to those who’ve obtained multiple degrees and a wide variety of experience. Liv is the Founder and Executive Director of The Colorfully Candid Paradigm, Incorporated and she is dedicated to impacting the lives of young ladies through her writing, motivational speaking, and service.

As a young lady, Liv struggled with bullying, depression, thoughts of suicide, and alcoholism, but it was easily masked behind the smile she wore, the great grades she made, and the many extracurricular clubs she joined and led. Now, Liv writes and speaks to encourage, inspire, and empower women-young and mature alike-who feel overwhelmed by their experiences and would like to discover positive ways to connect with community.

Liv published the first two novels in a series of eight, titled One Chance to Live Young: The First Colorfully Candid Diary and Two Dreams and a Goal: The Second Colorfully Candid Diary as she continues to encourage young ladies to receive God’s best gifts for their lives and walk in purpose. Liv has made a commitment to authenticity, originality, and candor and everything she says is spoken in love, even though it’s tough sometimes. You can find Liv in the community with The Colorfully Candid Paradigm and serving as the youth pastor at New Antioch Christian Fellowship-Aliante.

The Colorfully Candid Paradigm provides a V.I.E.W. of the Future by Vividly Inspiring and Empowering Women of the future.


The Colorfully Candid Paradigm, Incorporated was founded by Liv Dooley, M.Ed, as a faith based organization for young ladies in middle and high school who desire to grow in communication and cooperation with others in 2014. Liv witnessed how one’s ability to successfully cope with stress in the class directly impacted academic progress and how few young ladies were focused on their school work when they were concerned about personal issues at home and in their relationships during the seven years she spent teaching.

Colorfully Candid hosted The 1st Refill: A Retreat to Mount Charleston as the first event to provide young ladies with the opportunity time away from a regular routine, harmful influences, or negative patterns of thinking and become refilled with a resolve to maintain her goals. Today, Colorfully Candid hosts mother-daughter conflict resolution workshops, book clubs, confidence building workshops, and service projects, in addition to an inspirational one day conference during the summer.
