At age 34, I began the 14-year journey of healing from the emotional and spiritual wounds of a traumatic childhood, which led to frightening and dark places. After years of counseling and spiritual healing, I realized that true healing comes by combining psychological and Biblical truths. When I did that, my healing was more complete. I realized that my identity is not defined by the trauma I experienced. I hope my story of healing will help others uncover and resolve issues that may hold them back from their full potential. I believe that there is no “quick fix” to lifelong issues. I desire to provide hope to those who feel lost and hopeless because of childhood experiences.
Since retiring, I realize that I still have a story to tell. I discovered recently that there are many ways to tell a story. The purpose of this site is to share hope and truth through poetry, essays, and blogs that will encourage and uplift the reader. I want to use my experience to bring the life-changing impact of Jesus Christ to others. I believe that my story can point others to hope, healing and peace in Christ.
I have a Master’s Degree in University of Texas at Austin and I am currently enrolled in the Master of Arts in Apologetics program at Houston Baptist University. Prior to my retirement in 2015, I worked in Foster Care and Adoption for over 30 years, both with the State and in the private sector.
