I’m an author, international speaker, podcaster, presenter and tightrope walker.
After writing Restoring the Broken Places in an Unforgiving World, a book about building healthy relationships and forgiveness, I knew I had written a comprehensive book presenting life application principles to effectively restore personal and relational brokenness. Through my book, readers understood more about forgiveness and relationships. Mission accomplished — this is good! I have a deep passion to share what I’ve learned in my 5-year deep dive study of building healthy relationships and the need for forgiveness.
BUT — after 5 years of research, study, writing, hearing beautiful forgiveness stories from people everywhere (it seemed) and my book was published, I realized people also needed help with the issues that create a fertile environment for the pain-filled relationships we experience, causing unwanted brokenness requiring grace in the first place!
I became committed to address these issues to help people recognize their challenges. To do this, the issues should be rooted out and explored. I believe we can better address these matters by facing the problem head-on — calling it what it is and taking bold action. Many believe they’re already doing this, yet crushing relational challenges persist with no end in sight. Their pain continues. They believe there is no end in sight. Why is that?
How we see things or approach our challenges dramatically impacts life more than we think! Our seeing (thinking we know the situation) can often be deceiving. Because we’re focused on the problem, more than the road ahead, we stay stuck in the mess.
With the relational issues I’ve seen people suffer, paired with my years of study and my work in Pastoral Care, I realized the best way to help people transform life, have peace and live the kind of life they want was through private courses.
At the heart of these private courses is assurance that there is a solution even amidst a raging storm… creating clarity over matters that is easily lost in the chaos… providing understanding of how we can find ourselves in a situation we never asked for, and how to regain control over life!
Broken2Breakthrough private courses deliver encouragement and tried-and-true strategies one-on-one in just a few minutes a day, through the privacy of your own device or computer. No one wants to air their issues with complete strangers — and no workable solutions result in that! (How’s it working on social media?!) You can return to your course as often as you like.

Get Rid of Limiting Beliefs!
When you change your mind, your heart is sure to follow. You may think you have every angle figured about why things have fallen apart as they have, or why life isn’t as rich and full of the people you love most anymore. The problem is we don’t know what another’s situation is in their world. Relationships require more than one person. If it was left us to us and we had all the answers, we’d know it was a done deal and could go ahead and make dinner reservations for tonight, right?
I’ve met many Christians (and non-Christians as well) who believe they have a handle on all their problems. The curious thing is, they remain stuck in the same place they claimed creates such havoc in life. Why do we all repeat popular remedies that never work? Often, we believe we’re well-informed in addressing these pesky issues, and yet our quest (or desire) to regain peace in life continues. Why is that?
Popular practices, misguided beliefs, and pop psychology heavily influence our lives. We’ve heard old adages that well, they’ve been around forever so they must be true, right? Thinking we have this troubling situation is a way we can feel in control, but next time it erupts into a chaotic explosion, we realize we’re only fooling ourselves. When we get to the place that we are not going to have this in our lives any more, we will take steps to stop it.
There are things we can do to effectively address these broken places and begin enjoying life again. How do I know? Beyond my 5-year deep dive study and writing adventure on building healthy relationships — I’ve been there, too! I’ve tried many of the same ineffective things you have and discovered they didn’t work to fix things. At all. My passion is to share what I’ve learned with you in my 5 years of research, to encourage you and help you navigate through life challenges.
That’s what I created NoBuddy’s Personal Piñata course to help you say goodbye to Unhealthy relationships and transform life one relationship at a time!
We Must All Embrace the Change We Want to See in Our World!
We may convince ourselves we are changing things up, living boldly and doing all the things — that’s the easy part! The hard part is doing the right thing. I’m not saying it’s easy, but I’m saying it’s possible. It does take courage, boldness — but most of all commitment to taking the necessary steps to repair a situation that is negatively impacting life. It take a mindset reset to see things as they are, and focus on how you want to transform your life to be, not as it is now.
One thing I learned in my ministry work in the pastoral care department of a non-denominational hospital and in the children’s care unit of a psychiatric hospital, as I observed an incredible range of human conditions — the greatest being the need for improving relationships and resolving personal issues hindering true forgiveness. This gets in the way of living our best life! These become immoveable obstacles to living the life God wants for everyone.
There are tried-and-true strategies that do work! They are often avoided because we’re usually fully confident we can handle this matter just fine, even as we continue to fail at improving things, or finally we just give up and let the pain rule everyday. Having these problems does NOT make anyone a wimp or an outcast. It is all part of the human condition. As long as we have relationships with others (as humans do), there will be relational challenges. Every human has these problems in life. Sometimes we can become so worn out by a bad situation, we don’t know where to turn to get clarity and a plan to address it.
Continuing to live with a situation that makes your life more difficult doesn’t make you a better person. It gets in the way of being at your best, living more pain-free and having a great life! By sitting back and never taking effective steps to fixing a troublesome matter, we grant permission for it to stay. When we do this, we allow it precedence in our lives to transform into a deeper, more profound personal pain. Instead of living the kind of life we want, we remain an easy target for a hurting person. Isn’t your life worth taking the steps needed to restore the broken places, so you can transform your life? Of course it is!
We Always Have HOPE! There IS a Way Out…
If your’e in the middle of a mess or struggle with nurturing relationships, but you are willing to make life changes, there is hope! Based on the insight gained in my 5-year deep dive study (which has continued even after my book was published, so make that 7 years and counting…), I created Broken2Breakthrough to offer resources and programs to help you navigate these uncertain situations. I promise to share with you the things I’ve learned and proven tried-and-true effective strategies that will help you move toward a place of restoration, transforming your life to live your best!
If you find yourself in a one-sided relationship that leaves you feeling empty, hopeless, and you don’t want to deal with it anymore take heart. It never takes long to grow weary of being someone’s personal piñata, as they gleefully try to knock all the good stuff out of us! How to deal with it?
