It was one of the darkest moments of my life. After struggling with digestive issues for over a decade, I was desperate for a break through. I was losing all hope in westernized medicine and mad at God for choosing me to carry this cross. Those on the outside looking in saw a bright confident woman with a modelesque figure, but those closest to me knew the truth - that quietly I suffered in silence and despised my small frame. They remember the day I was rushed into surgery and laid blind in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for 3 days. They recall the night I was overdosed on morphine, the breathing machine strapped across my face and the grueling physical therapy to help me walk upright again.

For the next few weeks I’ll be sharing my 5 step recipe for overcoming life’s unpredictable challenges to achieve the "Abundant Life" you and I both deserve. My first ingredient - “Shifting the Paradigm of Thinking”. Stay tuned for more details!
