Servant-leaders bring healing. They give us hope. They help us rise.
Servant does not mean 'subservient', but one who serves humanity.

I am Mother Nature’s daughter through and through; I am most at one with life when I am in her embrace. I am an author. I have a passion to use words to teach purpose in all life's ebbs and flows, and to advocate for holistic healing methodologies. To the Moon and Back to Me: What I Learned From Four Running Feet is the first of what I plan to be many books authored and/or co-authored by me. I am a life story writer. I have a passion to listen to others share the chapters and stories of their life. As empathetic listener, and as writer, I inspire, and I aid healing. I am a mentor. I teach others not to lose hope and to find trust in life others, and themselves. I teach organizations and individuals listening and transformational servant-leadership tools and techniques. I have a vision to inspire and empower others who feel life is no longer worth living to uncover their wills to live. I wish to inspire the integration of grief into life such that in life, we flourish. The most powerful form of leadership [we] can imagine - leading a suffering person back to life from a living death (Ferch, pp. 123-124)

My perception is the world needs hope. The world needs faith that purpose exists in all things. I want to live in that "place where deep gladness and the world's hunger meet", where my joy at helping people not give up meets with the world's need for hope (Palmer, p. 31).
