I belong to a group of amazing women–the brain-and-heart-child of a fireball named Debbie Phillips. It’s called Women On Fire.
“What is Women On Fire? Women on Fire provides support for your dreams, strategies for your goals and inspiration for your passions.It is a powerful community of women who support one another in their greatest ambitions and toughest transitions.
Life and executive coach Debbie Phillips started Women on Fire in 2003 after noticing how her hardworking, successful coaching clients suffered from isolation. She decided to bring them together. Immediately, they loved being able to meet each other and share what they were “on fire” about. Soon, they asked for their friends to be included … and their mothers and sisters and daughters and colleagues … and on and on it went. Now, thousands of women are part of the Women on Fire circle of connection and support.
Our hope is that through the connections you make, the stories you hear, the wisdom you gain, and the love that you feel, you can lead the life you have always envisioned for yourself. ” http://www.womenonfire.com/
There are several ways that YOU can be a part of them too!
“In this inspiring and illuminating collection, 20 accomplished women share the stories of their most hard-won battles. They have lived through adversity and come out on the other side, happier, healthier and infinitely stronger.”
If you are in need of a bit of inspiration, or just seeing that others have survived life’s messes and challenges (we ALL have them), this is a great read for you! Actually, you will probably want to buy them both.
These are my stories—my life. I try to write honestly, raw, and from my heart. I try to tell all the parts—the good, the hard, the tough, the hopeful, and the emotional.
But most importantly, I am here to be found by you. I am open-hearted, and I won’t hide.
When I share my story, my words, and my experiences you may see yourself in them.
I make myself vulnerable, hoping that you might learn and heal.
We all need healing. The world can be cruel. Sometimes life can break us.
But there is joy and hope to be found. I pray that I may lead you to the One who can give them to us.
So, who am I?
*I’m an educator at heart–it’s in my blood.
*I’m a highly emotional person–I identify that as “passion”.
*I’m a late-life mom to two amazing and beautiful (adopted) children who have physical, mental, and psychological differences from “typical” children.
*I’m in my “Sensational Sixties”. I’ve lived a lot. I’ve learned a lot. And I’ve healed a lot.
I hope you will join me in my quest to live for God, to live fully, and to spread truth!
