Turning your pain into power is about shifting your perspective and realizing that you are here for a purpose, you are purpose, and that you have something unique inside of you that you need to bring out. Sometimes, the trauma puts us in a place where we can’t move to a point of healing but God has granted us permission to be free and live a limitless life, and we have to decide to take our life back.
In this episode of Hey, I’m listening, Dr. Joan speaks with Leah M. Forney about Turning your pain into power, overcoming the trauma that we endured
