I began my self-discovery process in my mid 30's.  After 9/11 my husband was sent on a remote tour overseas, leaving me with 6 kids alone.  My youngest was 2 years old and I had no choice but to figure out who I was and what I was doing with my life, more for my sanity than for any other reason. I felt like I crawled into bed at night and rolled out in the morning completely exhausted.

I was asked one day by someone why I put makeup on or took time to style my hair every day.  Hubby was gone and my 2 and 4-year-old, well they wouldn't know the difference. But for me, it did.  It made all the difference in the world.  It was like therapy.  It was my way of ministering to other moms that being a mom was not just taking care of the kids but it was feeling good about myself, I was important too. So my journey began...


You know, sometimes I get so overwhelmed. I am full of brilliant ideas that I just want to curl up in a ball and hide under my covers.  But, then I remind myself of the little starfish story and that it's okay to not have to touch the world all at once. Rather, it's in reaching those women, teens, or whomever, that God puts in my path each and every day that I can mentor and coach and help them find balance, love of self and confidence or ...just cheer on.
