I am not a stranger to grief and loss as life introduced me to grief at a young age. Being labeled as learning disabled, losing my best friend to an aneurysm coupled with losing my dear grandfather while in high school (yes, I was spoiled), watching and caring for my grandmother during a lengthy illness and subsequent death … to name a few. My best friend in college and I had vowed to open our business together after graduating, only for her to transition due to sickle cell before we could realize that dream.

 

I must say that there were also many happy times as well . . . being accepted into and graduating from the college of my choice, pursuing a career, and achieving the dream of becoming a wife. But, as life unfolded, that darkness of loss visited again. Life does not come with an instruction manual and is simply a day-to-day experience.   One usually has a mental picture of how their life is supposed to look, but it doesn’t always go as planned.  What happens then? 

 

After marriage, I had a strong desire of becoming a mother. I was advised that I might not be able to conceive, but I beat the odds. I subsequently conceived, only to endure a miscarriage, which I thought was the worst day of my life. Ultimately, I experienced a healthy pregnancy and gave natural birth to my daughter Madison, "Mommy's Miracle" and my reason why.

 

Why do I do what I do now? During the course of marriage; a miscarriage; marital infidelity; separation; the gift of reconciliation; professional and pastoral counseling; a second miscarriage; then, to being separated again and ultimately divorced, I found myself in a space of chaos and confusion.  This is life as it is NOW, but what are you going to do about it? is my personal mantra of empowerment.  I use this as the catalyst to find and cultivate something good out of those seemingly not-so-great circumstances and curve balls of life. 

 

After finally getting up off the floor and facing the hurt, pain, and embarrassment, my passion to help others was ignited. While facilitating a local support group, I realized that this problem was much bigger, much bigger than me, and affected so many women who were shamefully grieving and suffering in silence. Thus, the Infidelity Hurts Movement was launched to reach women around the world to inform, educate, share, and encourage. 


Through my coaching programs, I share my personal grief journey through marital infidelity and divorce in hopes that others will find encouragement and support. I will challenge you to own your truth and create your personal story.
