Conquering the Lion of Making a HARD CHANGE

One of the first things they asked us in counselors school was : “Do you think people can change?”…to be honest, I hadn’t thought about it much (really!??), I just wanted to help people when they were in sad times. I wanted to be part of a support system. I wanted to make an impactContinue reading “Conquering the Lion of Making a HARD CHANGE”

Conquering the Lion of Body Image

“The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” 1 Samuel 16:7, NLT THE BEACH! A fun-filled place of sun, family, friends, laughter, selfies, group photos and memories.

Just Keep Looking Down

One of my favorite children’s books (I have many!) is, “Oh The Places You’ll Go!” By Dr. Suess. It’s so full of positive energy and sentiment! “OH! THE PLACES YOU’LL GO! You’ll be on your way up! You’ll be seeing great sights! You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights!” You have been hearing andContinue reading “Just Keep Looking Down”

This is ME!

Have you seen “The Greatest Showman”? If you haven’t, I highly encourage you to! I loved it! My favorite song is “This Is Me”, and due to its popularity, I believe it struck a chord with much of our population. Here are the lyrics (I’ve shortened it a bit) and the video: This Is Me KealaContinue reading “This is ME!”
