While sharing her personal story of overcoming these downward spiraling of emotions and struggles, she explores, explains, and provides practices to stop the destruction. We are given the gift of “choice.” We can choose how we want to think, and we can choose how we want to respond to these toxic thoughts that we allow to control us.  “It is all about training our minds to make a choice- a choice empowered by the same Spirit that led Jesus to make the choices He made.”
