I thought something was wrong with me.

If I could be thinner,


better educated,

more talented,

or as beautiful as other women…

Then I’d be liked.

Then I’d be confident.

Then I'd be happy.

Sandra with Angela Dolls

The abuse of my childhood taught me I was worthless, that I had no value.

 And no matter how hard I tried, the peace I sought always seemed to allude me. 

Rather than facing my reality, I learned to escape—
through dolls and Disney,
through reading and writing,
through music I listened to and music I created.

I escaped in other ways, too, always searching for the thing that would solve my problems and make everything feel better. 

I watched from afar as others seemed to be living my dream
—the perfect home, the perfect family, the perfect life. 

What was wrong with me? 

I felt hopeless…
and stuck in a life I didn’t want and didn’t ask for.

Then in May of 2014, I was given a new perspective.

An ATV accident in the Imperial Sand Dunes nearly severed my right hand.
And in the aftermath, I discovered a secret.


The circumstances of your life may have you questioning if that’s possible.
You wonder if you can ever do enough to be enough.
You want to feel better so you work hard.
You strive to be your best.
You serve with 110% effort.
You think you should be happy. You want to be happy. You wish you were happy…

Instead, you feel tired and broken and wonder what happened to the girl with all the dreams–the one with hope for a better future..

The truth is:

There’s nothing wrong with you, just like there’s nothing wrong with me!

You don’t have to be miserable.

Because you get to choose.

That simple truth is the most powerful thing I’ve ever learned.

It changed my life, and it can change yours, too!

Because of the powerful tools I discovered, I went from being bitter and angry, to someone excited about life and motivated to make the most of it. 

I severed the lies and embraced my worth. 

Without the lies, I transformed. I let go of shame. I got rid of my doubts and insecurities. I started facing my fears. I learned to reprogram my mind so I could choose my thoughts and control my emotions. And I’ve developed deep, genuine confidence in every area of my life.

Today, I’ve reclaimed the power that was lost in the abuse of my childhood and I’m using it every day to go after the things that I previously only dreamed of.

I’ve discovered that I am in control of my destiny, and because of that, I have an amazing life filled with passion and purpose and possibilities for my future.

And for the first time ever, I’m content with who I am and happy with the direction my life is taking. I feel privileged to help create change in the lives of hundreds of other women, too.

Women just like you.
