My children are the most important aspect of my heart, and I truly enjoy being a part of my children's lives. I have a strong faith in God  and believe in spiritual growth and holistic healing in mind, body, and spirit. I have a strong belief and advocate for mental health and fitness. I am fascinated with different cultures, love reading, thrift shopping, listening to music, painting theme rooms, and watching food and travel shows.





Hope is Possible~ Transforming Lives Into New Beginnings

Life brings struggles and discouragement, and sometimes we all need someone who understands our pain to help us through these difficult times.
