Created with a Purpose
Where do I begin. God creates us all with unique gifts and talents. We stumbled upon the concept of story work from Social Media. It was my last Hail Mary. I’ve tried everything over the years but could not overcome these triggers that would set me dark. I began wondering if something was just wrong with me. As I learned more about story work through various podcasts I began to resonate with Traumas and how they affect us. Through prayer we found Lora . Through faith in the unknown of what meeting with her would bring we jumped in. Thru my sessions with Lora I can finally say “Of course” Of course my past traumas would trigger my actions. There is NOTHING wrong with me. God has created her with the gift of healing. Her words are always so profound and literally from the spirit. Her podcast so perfectly paints the journey to healing thru the 5 phases as she talks about. As I have walked thru each phase (and will continue for the rest of my days) via her coaching; I can say this podcast paints the vision and pathway better than another podcast on story work. Thank you Lora for stewarding your gift so magnificently. God, thru Dan, now thru you has literally saved my life, Is renewing my marriage, and my most important role as a father to not pass on my trauma to my amazing boys.
