Aim High, but Start Low

Almost 9 years ago, my whole life changed forever. I became disabled from a massive stroke that took away the use of the left side of my body. I am blessed that I regained the ability to walk again, but it took a lot of hard work and persistence. I still don’t have any functional use of my left hand and have set goals to try and get stronger. We all have goals. But have you ever set a goal that

Enjoy The Moment

I just got back from an incredible vacation at the beach. I spent every day sitting in the sand and soaking in the sun. But I noticed as each day passed my anxiety started to grow knowing we were a day closer to having to leave and this vacation coming to an end. I had spent so much time planning this trip and counting down the days until we got to leave, I was fully vested. That end of vacation anxiety

Going Backward

Have you ever made progress towards a goal only to regress backward? You work so hard only to feel crushed by a setback. You feel as though your goal will never be met and you lose motivation to keep pushing forward. Maybe you gained some weight back, lost some strength at the gym, or aren’t excelling as much at work. You feel as though you are down on your luck. We all have these moments. I remember after having 5 brain

Let The Light In

  Friends, have you ever been in a season of life that just seemed so dark you felt it would last forever? I sure have. Actually, I believe in our lives we, unfortunately, face many seasons of life that feel this way. Each day that passes, you question if you even remember what the sunshine looks like at all. One of the darkest times in my life was when I was having uncontrollable brain hemorrhages. I was in and out of the

Stuck in the Waiting Room

Have you ever gone to a doctor appointment and gotten stuck in the waiting room? You made sure you left your house on time and arrived to the appointment early. Next, you are seated in the waiting room and sit there for well past your scheduled appointment time, wondering when the waiting will end, if ever? The frustration grows with every passing minute. This “waiting room” can be used in both the literal and figurative sense. In all seasons of

The Story that Still Applies Today

My manuscript for my book has been completed, but due to COVID 19 it is on hold for a little until the economy picks back up. Do not worry, it will be published soon and it will be magical! My hope is that my book will bring hope and inspiration to millions of people. In the meantime, I have decided to start a weekly blog. It only makes sense to start from the beginning, as some of you may be

Enjoy the Moment was a complete success!

Wow! What a night. Enjoy The Moment was such an amazing success. More importantly it was an evening filled with love and inspiration. Sally Wiggin, Dr. Friedlander, and Andy Russell were so very generous with their time and talent. Thank-you all.

6 Months…. and FIGHTING

6 months ago my world was suddenly changed.. I underwent a 9 hour craniotomy to save my life after a massive brain hemorrhage. God pulled me through as my family prayed and hoped for the best. It has been a LONG 6 months of recovery but I am not going to stop until I get my life back again!  ~Heather

Why the Gloves?

At the moments of my darkest hours, I relied on my faith and determination that I would fight this with all my might and not stop until I beat it! That is where the symbol of the boxing gloves came in. I was feeling anxious before surgery and frightened by the unknown but completely sure that whatever happened I was willing to give it my all.
