Finding the Strength From God to Move Past Adversity.
Married, 58 years old, mother of 3 boys, grandmother of 2 girls, 1 boy. I was working full time in our business until 2 years ago when my health became my full time job. I enjoy yoga, gardening and cooking. My family is my reason for fighting. I wish I would have started this healthy lifestyle 30 years ago!
Currently I am a stay at home mom who just moved across the country because of my fiancé’s job. A year ago I would not have came with him but now we are only two weeks away from our wedding. I grew up in a house with a dad with addictions. My depression consumed me and is a battle I face every day. My future goals are to go back to school and get a degree in social work. I want to find creative ways to help people be the best them that they can be.
