Why Does This Site Exist?

Do you realize how important gaining resources and having someone to talk to is to MANY people out there?

It’s a life line, really… a place to go when you have exhausted all other resources and help.  We typically wait until we are at the end of our rope and then reach out in desperation for someone to understand our situation, for someone to be that life line.

What if we already had connections and relationships built….what if we knew of a place we could turn when we needed a resource on our specific situation? Knowing this would be instrumental in helping us be better, choose better in that moment as a parent struggling to cope.

This is what I envision Empower Your Village being to you.  Connection. Relationships. Empowerment.

I know there is much to be said about HOW we can empower…..the resources, the articles, the links, the coaching…but I want you to know WHY this site exists.

My passion to help people. Plain and simple.

I have always been driven to help others.  From the new student that came to my 9th grade social studies class and didn’t know a person in the room to the mom with a challenging child that no one wants to talk to, let alone let their children join together in play time…I want to offer my hand, I want them to see value in themselves and their place in the world…and share that same value and worth to their children.

Having experienced both in my profession and in my personal life the challenges that can arise from parenting, I want to share and learn alongside others walking the same path.

Children are a gift…there is no doubt in my mind about that…and when we can see them as the gift that they are, and not defective and not an obstacle to anything that we may want to achieve, then we become happier, and our children, in turn are happier, as well.

So, think about this…do you have a need to connect, to gain resources and to build relationships with others on the path of parenting a child with specific challenges?  Is this something that you could find value in? Is this something that you could see yourself sharing with others to encourage them on their path?

If so… come experience the value of community
