Bridging the gap
After over 20 years of having the privilege of hearing what is really going on deep inside of families, I would like to offer my lens to help you all understand what you really want each other to know, but don’t know how to explain.
What I believe
I believe we are all a genius at something! I believe our lives are important & it requires intentional decisions. I believe we all need mentors to show us the pitfalls as well as help us get where we want to go. My love for these teenagers has inspired me to help both them and the parents who love them. I’m different because I help both sides meet in the middle. I believe we are created in the image of God, and even if you don’t believe in Him there is still a lot to learn here.
