My Life Purpose?
Love & Service. People need loving the most when they 'DESERVE' it the least. Every good thing in my life is a direct or indirect result of love & SERVICE. Helping redirect perception toward the light of gratitude changes everything. Love is my religion; action is my gospell.
Through the years, MADD MN has bestowed commendations to its Victim Impact Panel Speakers. We are a great Team! I was nominated for the 2018 Victim Impact Speaker of the year, and was awarded that distinction.
As I understand God, "God is Love". My passion Love, Only Love. It's no easy task to love & forgive oneself when you've made the choices I have made. I've learned that what we do for ourselves is transitory. What we do for others is eternal. The mistakes of our friends we write in water, but their virtues, we carve in granite. No matter how far down the scale we may have gone in life, we can use the experience to help others. It has made my life worth living to hear people say I've changed or 'saved' their life. Personally, I think they saved their own life by freeing themselves of the self-imposed prison of unforgiveness. I was just there to see it happen.
