Change is part of the human condition and no one is exempt from emotional pain and adversity. Developing resilience is a critical key to not only accepting and meeting a life challenge head on, but being able to get to the other side of it with greater wisdom and strength.


After her daughter died, Lisa didn't know how she was going to continue on. Life as she knew it was over. After months of darkness and contemplating suicide, Lisa crawled out of the hole of despair in order to support her family and in particular to help her son through the worst time of his life. 

She had every reason to quit on herself,

her family, and her life. Instead, she started doing one simple thing that changed everything.
