Four years ago, a man halfway around the world wrote a simple comment on an online review that changed both of our lives. Today we tell the story.

Please note, it is a story that involves big issues: alcoholism, sexual abuse, physical abuse, parental neglect, financial hardship, and childhood trauma. It is also a story that involves hope, resiliency, new beginnings, and is a testament to our ability as humans to continue to reach, evolve and remake ourselves, regardless of what our past holds. 

My special guest today is Paul Pettit, Certified Reiki, Reflexboloy, Life Coach, and my husband. I am beyond honored to be able to share this man and our life experiences with you all.

Love is always the answer.
