    How do you start the process of healing? Join the conversation on how to start your season of healing. There is no one size fits all when it comes to healing yourself or our relationships. We get tips, tools and resources that may guide us in the direction of healing. However true healing takes a vulnerability and a willingness to not just try but to do.

The movie he produced and she starred in "Manos: Hands Of Fate" that was named the worst movie ever in history. Jackey also shares how she had to find her season of healing in order to mend the relationship with her father.
