As we focus on living a well done life this last quarter of 2017, I realized how we see ourselves often impacts our choices. The quote “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment” is sometimes painfully true in our generation.
This month I continue the conversation we started with Pat Patterson in episode 17: Your Self Esteem DNA. If you ever struggle with loving your life and loving yourself, episode 17 and today’s podcast will help you start moving towards a healthier perspective.
After I heard today’s guest, Ginger Ciminello speak at a retreat she hosted, I knew I had to add her to my list of mentor friends. Her passion for scripture and her gift of storytelling make you want to spend more time reading God’s word for yourself. Ginger is wise and vulnerable and transparent about a hard season of her life when she kept an eating disorder hidden from friends and family. She also shares how God has taken her love of theater and help her step into her purpose and how that journey has helped heal her identity. This is an episode you don’t want to miss. Ginger and I would love to hear your thoughts over on the blog or on social media.
Ginger Ciminello is a work-from-home mom of two girls, as well as a speaker, writer, and co-owner of With Joy Retreats. Consequently, her house is rarely clean and her hair is almost always in a ponytail. Her book, Forget the Corsage, was written to mentor the young women she’s met in auditoriums and classrooms around the country. She has a deep desire to connect with women of all ages and encourage them to laugh, learn from her many mistakes, and connect with the Lord through his Word.
