"When I speak, the root of the message always comes back to love, because the areas affected by love are endless." - Abi Stumvoll
I love what Abi says! I feel the very same way. I enjoy speaking on many different topics - family, marriage, military life, supernatural experiences, hope and healing, resiliency - but the root is always love.
TOPICS I LIKE TO SPEAK ABOUT
Ahhh motherhood. I love it! I hate it! I love it! Most of all its worth it. I am passionate in my mission to encourage my fellow parents who are in the trenches of parenting. Our babies - infants or full grown - deserve our best efforts. This is a message with some simple tools on making the best of this season in life.
Ahhh marriage. I love it! I hate it! I love it! (do you sense a theme?) Marriage is a wonderful adventure! I went to college to become a marriage and family therapist after the unfortunate demise of my first marriage. Incredibly, I ended up married again . . . to an incredibly wonderful patient man. We have learned some amazing things over the last 15 years and I would love to share them with you!
HOPE AND HEALING
In 1999 I was healed of cancer. There is a lot more to that story. Ultimately, this is a message of hope and my personal journey towards freedom from fear.
As a seasoned military spouse, I have lived through some real life situations that would put Lifetime Movie Channel to shame. But this message isn't about the drama - save that for TV - this is a message about bouncing back to life after hitting rock bottom.
I value relationships more than anything else in the world. When the culture is right, we can dive deep and love fully the people around us. I try hard not to let my friends believe lies about themselves and I'm lucky to have many friends who do the same for me. This is an honest message about friendship and culture.
Sometimes Life asks us to do really hard things. This message is the testimony of how I became a woman of faith, found the ability to do brave things, and discovered my own identitiy along the way.
