In being grounded, growing and grateful Dorothy has chosen to serve Christ over cancer, faith over fear, to open her soul to new experiences . . . . 

. . . . If you could have been there from the begining of her adult life it wasn't like that. If you were walking and talking with her, you would have seen what was missing.  Her longings kept her in tears, locked behind closed doors.  You could feel the tension in the air around her.  Feel her depression.  See the sadness in her eyes.  She was afraid to just be herself.  But who was she anyway? 

Dorothy had immersed herself into her husband’s culture. Then one day her soul opened up.  She thought she was too Canadian to be Italian yet too Italian to be Canadian.  Now what?  She didn’t know who she was or where she fit it.  She was lost in translation.  Her role at home was changing.  Her family was growing up creating lives of their own.  She felt lost without a vision for her life.

When the clock turned from 1999 to 2000 things began to change.  But not until her final suicide attempt where she asked herself two very important questions.  Dorothy, what are you feeling and when did you first feel like this?  The answer to those two questions set her on a journey of discovery.  She discovered who she was and what she loved to do.  

She found the courage to just be herself and ask for what she wanted.  On her journey of transforming from a stay at home mom to a business woman she invited Big G into her emotions.  She let go of being a people pleaser and began to please Big G.  He helped her then and helps her now.  To let go of her fears.  Filling her to overflowing with His Spirit of Power, of Love and Self Discipline.  It was a difficult journey yet when she wrote those books it helped her to get out of the frame of her life to see the bigger picture and let go of being bitter. 

As you face the challenges and changes in your life.  Possibly with a cancer diagnosis, a disability or even retirement. Dorothy encourages you to know that Big G is right there with you and wants to be your friend. Dorothy can lead you to experiencing the best while going through the worst.

Even when cancer showed up in Dorothy's life, Big G showed her who He wanted to be for her.  Now He’s holding her hand guiding her through her emotions as she has the time of her life before the time of her life is over.  

After planning events for her children's birthdays, weddings, baby showers, and milestone birthdays, it brings a sense of purpose to inspire those who'd love to have a special celebration of their life before their life is over.  A celebration of their life to move forward and not give up.  An opportunity to be blessed by family & friends.
