Your Story Your Strength: Discover Healing From Tragedy, Reveal Resilience and Leave a Lasting Legacy
Smoke rose from the home in the pre-dawn light. A kind stranger stopped his car and ran to the house, sending his daughter to wake the neighbours and call the fire department. From inside, he could hear the screams of a child.
This day began the author's journey towards discovering the incredible power of story. Power to not only understand the events of her life, but also to see patterns, find healing, foster better relationships, and to discover her strengths and even her purpose. And this undeniable, awe-inspiring, life-changing power lies within EVERY story. Including yours.
No matter who you are or what you've been through, there's a lesson, a gift, in your story. In these pages you can find that healing, that lesson or gift, and then discover your own way to share that story with the world to encourage healing in others. Take this journey and free yourself to embrace your purpose and all you were created to be.
That is the power of your story.
