Hi, I’m Cathy
One thing is certain: life is rarely simple and carefree. Like me, I know you, too, have experienced fluctuating highs and lows, exhilaration, devastation, and everything in between.
With each new disappointment, you may feel your joy slip a little further out of reach. I’ve felt it too. I don’t want you to have to live with that feeling ever again.
I spent years wondering how to embrace joy when heartbreaking trials seem to overshadow the lighthearted moments.

Personally speaking – I’m a proud law enforcement wife, married to Mike – the love of my life – for over 30 years.
