PEOPLE, people matter most! I have been utterly broken beyond what I believe could ever be repaired. I don’t ever wish for another human being to have to live out that same mortifying scenario, nor do I ever want to return there myself. What I do in service for others is just as much for myself as it is for those I work with and for. My mission is to help you to F.ind Y.our I.nspiration (FYI) to change your circumstances. Through awareness, you will identify a need and build desire to implement the necessary changes for successful transformation; leaving you to live a more joyful and productive life!
In my books, I write about deeply personal situations that were difficult for me to both live through and to share the details with others. However, I realized if someone had been there to offer their story, advice, and support while I was walking through my dark life trials, it would not have been so scary. I want to offer that support to those who are having a hard time finding it. My writings reflect on the significance of allowing others to help us. I often refer to help of this nature as a form silver lining. Most of all, I reflect on how imperative it is to have faith in something. Some of our silver linings can originate in this faith.
