We’ve all seen the violent crimes and senseless murders on the news perpetrated by people who were severely abused
as children, came from dysfunctional homes, or never had the love of a father or mother in their life. These have
become great excuses for why people do the things they do and why many chose to stay the way they are because they
can’t see a way out. I believe people have become hopeless that their situation will ever change and why some chose to
stay in their abusive situations. They have not been able to identify exactly what it is that is tormenting them or where
to find help. This is exactly where I was.
I was molested; raped; sexually, physically, emotionally, verbally, and spiritually abused; was an alcoholic,
workaholic, codependent, and drug addict; was almost killed twice and attempted suicide once. I was tormented by fear
of every kind, rejection, guilt, shame, condemnation, hopelessness and depression (to name a few). And I hated myself.
Pretty ugly? Yes it was.
It was time to stop sweeping my issues under the rug pretending nothing was wrong. I was almost 40 and had to deal
with them or I was going to die. Enough is enough. I wanted to be a victor instead of a victim; a winner instead of a
whiner; on top of things instead of buried by them. I was ready to get rid of my stress and anxiety. Can you believe it is
possible for a “one eighty” to take place in your life? I wasn’t sure at first, but I am now. I absolutely, undeniably know
that I know that it is possible. After my first taste of freedom, I knew I wanted more; I wanted it all.
I am a Certified Life Coach and a Pastoral Counselor; not a psychologist or licensed therapist. But I’ve been a counselor
and a life coach for many years. I’ve been certified as a Life Coach through Light University and the
schooling, but I have the simple, practical answers that I learned from going through the process of healing, attending
seminars, reading scores of books, and studying the subject for over 15 years. I have walked the walk; been personally
coached, counseled, and mentored by people I’ve trusted. The best teacher and coach I’ve ever had (and still do have)
is the Holy Spirit. Without Him, I am nothing and I can do nothing. This ministry is all about God; I’m just His scribe
and His voice.
Many of you will see yourself on this page and many of you will think I had it easy compared to what you’ve been
through. No matter how much or how little you have experienced, you can become whole again too. I have
experienced a total transformation which is even better than I ever thought possible. You may or may not have
chosen well in the past; others around you may or may not have chosen well in the past; but you can chose well right
now. The choices you make now will not only affect you, but your spouse, your children, your grandchildren, your
family, your friends and your job.
Don’t think a person who has been through what I have can help you? That is exactly why I can help you. I’ve
personally been there and have come out on the other side – healed and whole. I’d be lying if I told you I was “done”;
I’m not. I’m on a journey just like you are and am learning more every day. My life experiences are the catalyst
necessary to help others. This is my purpose and passion in life; to help you and partner with you for a better life. This
is the time to take control of your life instead of letting your life take control of you. Are you ready for your one-
eighty? I can help you get there.
