There’s something about pen on paper and keystroke followed by keystroke I find comforting. It’s almost as if with each stroke of the pen or strike of the keyboard, I feel my stresses and burdens leaving me. Something about opening up my mind and heart and sharing it on paper makes me feel strengthened, hopeful, bold and fearless.
Through highs and lows the pen and the keyboard have been a source of solace, comfort and hope. I truly believe in the therapeutic power of writing. I believe in the power of the written word to change, shape, transform and empower. Join me in my signature program birthing and discover how writing can change your life and empower you.
