I moved from broken to beautiful, and you can too. I’ve endured many challenges and trials in my lifetime and have experienced fear, anger, discouragement, depression, and at times even despair. I struggled to forgive God and those who hurt me. I understand those emotions. Through those difficulties, God gave me a compassion for people and a desire to help others move from broken to beautiful.

Fond Memories of North Carolina

Cropped Yvonne with CorsageI drove to North Carolina and spoke four times in three days. The weather was beautiful. The cold spell didn’t come until the last day as I drove home.

True Southern hospitality greeted me in Raleigh, Rocky Mount, and Roxboro. The people were friendly and gracious. I laughed so much over the four days and enjoyed all four speaking engagements.

On the way to NC, I listened to an audio book of Erma Bombeck. On the way home, I listened to music and sang.

A big thank you to all the people of Raleigh, Rocky Mount, and Roxboro who made my time there a precious memory.
