A Christian who believes in Biblical Principles and the Power of Faith and Prayer. I am a Caring, Compassionate, Insightful, and Discerning Healer. I am a Friend, Loyal, Strong, and Funny with a dry sense of humor. I am Controlling at times, but always yield to God’s Will. I am a Good Listener, always trying to increase knowledge of Myself and Others.
That we all have gifts, talents and a greater purpose. I believe there is hope and we are all capable of growth and healing. Struggle leads to Understanding, Chaos to Peace, Confusion to Clarity, Despair to Hope, Self Doubt to Confidence, and Anxiety and Depression to Joy. I believe there are growth opportunities in every Trail, and that No Tear is Wasted. I believe We were Made to Connect with Others for Love and Support. I believe some People are Placed in our lives to Prepare the Soil, some to Plant the Seeds, some to See the Growth and the Beauty, and some Blessed in our lives to Witness all Three. I believe it is Important to have Strong and Loving Marriages, Families, and Relationships to help weather the Storms of Life. I believe we are all trying to Find our Authentic Selves and have a basic need to feel we Belong, are Accepted and Valued for who we are.
