My passion is for my family.
All four of us and our two dogs. Our Golden Retriever Rosie and Baxter, the funniest pug in the world.
Together we live life with all it brings. Joy and hurts, ups and downs. We all love each other and we reflect it as differently as our personalities.
My passion is also for everyone to have the opportunity to heal from adversity. To develop healthy relationships with others, and with God.
You see…It’s here we Thrive. It’s here we become better for ourselves, and for those we love.
Transparency has always been a struggle for me. To be open meant I had to let me guard down and risk getting hurt. After a life a violence and abuse from the closest people who were supposed to be safe for me, it took a trek through healing to be open enough to love and be loved.
Join me on a journey of hope, healing new relationships. Of safe boundaries and yes... transparency. And perhaps along the way, a closer walk with God.
What’s love got to do with it?
That is a good question. And the answer is… everything. It starts with learning how to have a healthy love for ourselves.
At our Stronger groups, we work on healing. Healing from the hurts of our past helps us find who we were meant to be. And once we discover this, we walk forward with a healthy love for ourselves, and our children and friends around us. For me, I had to find healing within in order to be able to fill myself up with the things I can share with others.
In 2019, I am challenging myself to write one blog a day on healing. You see, if you like me have suffered from the pain of violence and abuse, then you might be hiding from the pain as I did.. And if you are hiding… well, you can’t be seen. The real you is there.
If you have suffered from violence or abuse, you are worth more than you might possibly know. I invite you to join me each day on my blog. Join me on a journey of hope, healing new relationships. Of safe boundaries and yes... transparency. And perhaps along the way, a closer walk with God. Read, pray, forgive yourself, heal and dream again. Believe me, you are worth it.
