Have you ever looked in the mirror and really didn’t like what you saw? I have. And to be honest, on some days, I still do. I could say that might be a normal behavior, to a certain degree…but is it healthy? Probably not. Self-judgement can be cruel. When we look at our reflection negatively, we often convince ourselves this is how others see us. This can become an unrealistic way of thinking.
So, how can we learn to accept our reflection, flaws and all? I think we must first realize we are not meant to be perfect. Even those who are blessed with beautiful features are still imperfect. We must learn to see the way God sees. He sees under the surface. He sees our heart. Don’t get me wrong. God cares about our image because we are created in His image. He created us in His own image so that we could glorify Him and ultimately live eternally with Him in Heaven. So, while here on this earth…I believe we should take a good look in the mirror and see our worth. We are more precious than rubies. (Proverbs 3:15)
If you are having difficulty looking at or recognizing your own mirror reflection, please know I’m here. I want to help you see a new perspective.
Welcome to a part of my small world. Because this is called the "About Me" Page, I probably should say a few things about me. Right? Here goes....
I was a Certified Child Development Specialist for over twenty years, while working with infants, toddlers, Pre-K and Head Start..... I am now a Certified (Christian) Breakthrough Life Coach through Life Breakthrough Academy. I could say so much more between the dot, dot, dots...but I'll spare you the boredom. LOL
I am the founder of -Her Journey Towards Change- for women who are (for whatever reason) on their journey towards change.
I believe everyone needs that 'go to' person in facilitating change. But, sadly, not everyone does. I know what it's like trying to figure life out but can't seem to get past the 'stuck' mindset. The first step to becoming 'unstuck' is being truthful with yourself. Believe me...I know. This is why I started 'Her Journey Towards Change.'
I have a passion and purpose for serving God and for serving women. My hope is to provide you with a valuable service in finding clarity in your struggles, accountability in reaching your goals, assisting with strategies through guidance and support, focus on your God-given talents and unique skills, offer positive insights and new perspectives and eliminate the negativity that might be pulling you down.
I truly believe God has given women a uniqueness like nothing else in this world. I also believe when we, as women, understand our identity in Christ, we can know our purpose. And in spite of our challenges, we can live in faith with the hope and joy God desires for us.
~Born and raised as a coal miner's daughter in North Central West Virginia is what keeps me humble. My influence as a Christian, wife, mother and grandmother gives me purpose. Living my life to the fullest and making each day count is what keeps me fulfilled. Using my God-given talents for others simply makes me happy...and living for God is what makes me whole.~
