You Are My Passion
I am passionate about equipping you to thrive. Too many women are merely 'survive' in their jobs, in their marriages, and in their task of parenting. Until I intentionally set out to become equipped, I too was merely a survivor of whatever life brought me.
I know what it's like to sit in the ash pile like Job. Not just for a year, but literally for more than two decades. Maybe you're there now. I know what it's like to feel hopeless, be filled with despair, be an unwilling participant in circumstances over which you have no control. Struggle with health, in marriage, in parenting. I have so much I want to share with you. Because I can't possibly meet with each in person (especially during this pandemic), I am writing my story, intended to equip you and bring you hope and a future. Stay tuned for my 2021 book release "From the Ashes I will Rise: Knocked Down, but not Knocked Out".
My intent is to provide some tools that will better equip you to thrive in your life. I provide tools in several ways:
*Materials on this website
*Books I write
*Classes I teach
*Conferences I speak at (Virtual/In-Person)
Whatever method you access, I pray you find nuggets that will help you in your journey as a woman, a wife, a mother, an employee. I will do my best to keep up with regular posts, but if I fail-please please reach out to me!!!
