Tell us about yourself:
I am grateful to serve, play and “allow books to be written through me” in western North Carolina. I approach life with a quiet mind, an open heart and a joyful spirit. I’m an Alliance of Divine Love Minister, certified in spiritual direction and founder of Joy on Your Shoulders, offering spiritual mentoring, journaling classes and Batik wares sewn by local seamstresses.
Why did you become a RTA-Certified Facilitator?
A relative of Renee’s who lives in Brevard, NC thought Renee and I had much in common so he connected us. He was right! Renee is a soul sister to all I have learned and love to offer: helping women to honor themselves more deeply, love who they are, and thrive in their families and in the world. I feel that the journey of becoming a RTA-Certified Facilitator will support my continued growth and enable me to expand my reach as I serve others.
How has this work changed or affected you?
Renee’s book The Mother’s Guide to Self-Renewal, website and RTA-Facilitator Support Classes have inspired me! I deeply resonate with her program and approach, and look forward to facilitating Personal Renewal Groups for the women in my area.
What are your favorite self-care activities?
I love to settle into my sacred chair first thing in the morning with a cup of warm lemon water, sink into my gratitude journal and spiritual reading, and breathe into connection. Choosing healthy food, drinking plenty of water and moving my body rank high on my list of self-renewal activities, too.
