OMG!!! after 37 years of interacting with a diversity of women from my speaking engagements, conferences, retreats, travel, coaching, calls, and counseling...I have heard amazing stories of women who have issues with; mother/daughter conflict/pain, divorce, grief, marriage/dating problems, breast cancer, secrets, church hurt, betrayal, job dissatisfaction, dysfunctional family/childhood, addictions, domestic abuse, financial stress, achievements against the odds, depression, trauma, caregiving, raising their grandchildren, painful loss, homeless, unemployed, parenting stress, mental health issues in the family, sexual violence, single and lonely, unhappy and feeling stuck with no purpose, struggling as a single parent, feeling unworthy, etc. Some women were born in a storm and have never experienced peace, real love, stability, or connection.
I have gained so much insight from so many women's; vulnerability, courage, love, faith, courage, tenacity, resiliency, service to others, kindness, wisdom, unstoppable faith and trust in me to be their repository and safe haven for their stories, questions, and curiousity.

Just know, for sure, your story of breaking strongholds, possessing a steadfast faith in God, and your growth ... can truly bless someone who feels lost, exhausted, unworthy,unloveable, hopeless, alone, broken, doubtful or ashamed. Spread the light. Be a light. Stay in the light. (Matthew 5:16)
