I was delighted when a friend introduced me to Episode 24’s guest, Cindy Villanueva. We were both unwed teen moms who bounced back from that failure only to end up with divorce, domestic violence, and career setbacks as part of our stories.
In her memoir, Don’t Fight Mad, a Blackbelt’s Quest to Recapture Joy, Cindy shares how she transformed life’s challenges into gifts of resilience and strength. Like me, Cindy bounced back from her hardships as a teen mom. She persevered in getting her education, pursued her career, and successfully raised her children.
We both learned that we aren’t our failures. And, thanks to our faith, we’ve also learned that we aren’t what we’ve accomplished. Our identities are more than our degrees, careers, and even our children. Tune in to learn more from her story!
Thank you everyone for following and for leaving a rating or review. I love you!
