Do you feel discouraged, deceived, or depressed?

Do you worry that you’ll never overcome the challenges and heartaches in your life?

Do you struggle to forgive yourself and those who hurt you?

I understand. I experienced those same feelings and struggles. However, I moved from broken to beautiful, and you can too. Through my blog, the free resources, and my future podcast, my goal is to help you move from broken to beautiful.

When a Glimmer of Hope Appears

Glimmer of HopeThis morning I sensed a nudge to look online for the maker of a program I lost when the hard drive crashed. I found the company and did a live chat with one of the representatives. Five years of wonderful memories were on that program. Have you experienced that type of loss or some other one?

If you have, you understand the fear and anguish I felt. If you haven’t, I hope you never do. I delayed contacting the maker of the program for three weeks because I didn’t want to hear, “I’m sorry, ma’am. Your data is gone.” Meanwhile I worried that everything did vanish since I couldn’t get into the program.

During the live chat, the representative and I shared the screen. The moment he clicked on a document that looked like it could be the missing data, a glimmer of hope appeared.

Perhaps you didn’t lose data on a program, but you lost a friend or misplaced scrapbooks filled with precious memories and mementos.

That live chat became the highlight of my day. The technician found all the data and walked me through an update of the program. If we had spoken on the phone, the technician would have heard me shout for joy. To express my excitement on the live chat, I used capital letters and exclamation points. What would you have done?

God heard my prayers over the past three weeks, and the Bible verse that I claimed was Psalm 37:5, “Commit your way to the LORD.”

Have a wonderful week, commit your way to the Lord and look for a glimmer of hope. For free resources, click on this link,

When Will Your Rejoicing Come?

Joyful copy

My technology trauma left me wondering if I would ever crawl out of the pit. Maybe you feel that way right now. Your trauma may not be technology. Perhaps it’s a lingering illness, injuries from a car accident or the loss of a job. Maybe it’s the loss of a loved one, a strained relationship… Continue Reading

Here Comes Trouble in Threes

“Why can’t I enjoy one day without trouble coming at me from all directions?” Bonnie asked. I had asked myself that very question more than once. “Most people have asked that same question, Bonnie.” She sighed. “I’m trying so hard to build a strong family.” She took tissue from her purse and dabbed her eyes.… Continue Reading

Do You Think You’re Beyond Forgiveness?
