I am reaching 50 years old and during my lifetime, I've seen and been involved in some very tough roads and decisions. At this time in my life, I feel strongly to reach out to others in areas that I have never really discussed before.
It takes great courage to come to this point and great faith. To look back and see how all good things work out for those that put their faith in God even when criticized, judged and ostracized. I believe we are all here for a purpose and mine is to help educate others from what I have learned from my past and am still learning daily.
My major influences are all those silent people that suffer in pain. When we internalize our pain, it takes a huge toll. Toll on our relationships, our health, our minds and souls. So, this is my calling to help those that I can, if any and hopefully, it will be passed on.
Joyce Meyer is a huge influence in my life, also. A very real lady who experienced trauma in her early years and shares her testimony with MANY who will listen. In listening to her and reading her books, I have come to be able to face that which is not easy to without fear.
My kids. I have seen them both grow up in painful situations and they still get back up and it's for them I want to educate others.
My parents. Extremely wise people who gave my two siblings and I such desire to continue the good fight, to speak out, to give with love and live in it.
Lastly, most importantly. God. He is my Rock and has pulled me through some major storms only to still remain here and have compassion for others.
