“I love helping others and believe that the greatest gift we can offer another is the prospect of hope. There is no question that life can be hard at times. There are those moments when the whole world appears to be conspiring against us and nothing seems to go right. It is during these times, I believe, that we are challenged to look within, discover our strengths, and rise above. With a little bit of guidance we can work together to restore a sense of hope and get things back on track.”
