I am originally from Miami, FL, where I accepted Christ after the devastating Hurricane Andrew. My husband an I have 7 children, 2 biological, and 5 adopted from the foster care system.
My husband and two biological children have a devastating, rare, and difficult to diagnose disease which struck us unexpectedly, challenging our view of life and our faith in God.
Life is filled with joy and pain, in varying degrees for different people. We have had our share of both and we recognize that people are immensely resilient, and are never given more than we can handle. We also appreciate that while we have experienced heart-wrenching setbacks through the years, our family has relied on each other for comfort and support, and this is certainly one of our family’s foremost strengths.
Our story of hardship and joy is what allowed me to create Choice Mapping. Choice Mapping is a formula to say I am Mentally-STRONG. A type of cognitive restructuring anyone can learn.
