” From Unwanted, to Unstoppable” 

 

 

 

 

January 22, 1973:

The day abortion became legal in the United States

Roe v. Wade reshaped our nation, dividing much of the United States into pro-choice and pro-life camps, while activating grassroots movements on both sides.

 

Wait. Don’t leave yet, I promise I am not a lawyer.

 

Shortly after the United States Supreme Court ruled abortion should be legalized,

 

My mom and dad were at a party and I was born about 9 months later…

 

As a young child my family said I should have never been born. They reminded me often with actions and words such as

 

“I knew I should have had an abortion…”

 

Ever tried raising your hand in 3rd grade to ask your teacher,
“What’s a…bor…shin?”

 

Goodtimes.

 

Now that you have some backstory, fast forward a decade.

 

As a teenage single mom in the early 90’s, I didn’t have a CLUE, and I didn’t have a whole lot of “family support” or healthy advice.

Looking back, I remember:

* I didn’t have the best example set for me while I was growing up: (divorces, drugs, alcohol, pornography, ongoing abuse in every possible form, neglect, hunger, etc…)

* I lacked the wisdom and resources needed to be a great role model, which overwhelmed me… literally every day.

* Yet, I was determined to become a great role model for my own child someday…
Here is a photo of my son and I back then.

October, 2015:

Twenty-three years later I am returning home from delivering a presentation at a Leadership Event in Alabama, preparing to celebrate my 42nd birthday with my wonderful husband at one of our favorite restaurants on the ocean.

 

Roe v. Wade may have reshaped our nation back then, I don’t know.
What I do know is MY TRUTH: I serve an awesome God who is shaping me daily as I trust Him for everything I need.

My success is His miracle.

My blessing is His generosity.

As I intentionally choose to devote my life to Him daily, He opens doors and showers me with His extravagant love and favor.

 

If it were not for my faith in Jesus, I would have either collapsed under the pressures of abuse recovery & single parenting, or completed my suicide attempts.

 

But God…

Here I am now with an adult son who is one of the most incredible humans I know; a man who loves God and loves his wife, a college student, an artist, a United States Marine Corps veteran who is married to an amazing young woman making her way through veterinary school. I could not be more blessed.

I am intentionally walking in faith with Jesus Christ alongside my kind, patient, handsome husband who prays for me, my recovery and my ministry every single day.

I am a published author, I have a rewarding speaking career, healthy interpersonal relationships, and a podcast that reaches thousands of people in over 50 countries.

This coming year, my business partner and I are starting a non-profit organization for abuse survivors.

I mean…really?

All this for a little girl who was unwanted…supposed to be aborted. My heart breaks for that little girl who was me… I barely made it some days. BUT GOD.

If I could talk to “Little Athena” right now, I would tell her a lot of things…

Mostly about how to avoid toxic relationships, the importance of community, healthy personal boundaries, safe people, healthy parenting choices, exercising strong faith, how to recover from childhood sexual abuse and exploitation  (commonly referred to now as human trafficking)  …and I would definitely mention business & entrepreneurship, as I have been working either for someone else or myself for over 26 years now.


I would say, “Build a business you love, Athena…
Sooner rather than later…  Now rather than years from now.
Find what you’re most passionate about and find a way to do that.
And whatever you do…don’t give up!”

I am alive, I am blessed,

I have experienced success.

 

DID IT HAPPEN OVERNIGHT?  NO.
WAS IT EASY?  NO.
DID I WANT TO GIVE UP?  YES.
IS THERE A SECRET?  SURE:

 

  • WALK IN RADICAL FAITH
  • PRAY DANGEROUS PRAYERS
  • CHOOSE AN EXCELLENT ATTITUDE
  • POSSESS UNWAVERING CONSISTENCY
  • MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES DAILY
  • PRACTICE INTENTIONAL LISTENING
  • READ WAY MORE
  • LEARN & BE TEACHABLE
  • BECOME FULLY PRESENT
  • ESTEEM OTHERS
  • HONOR GOD, OTHERS, AND YOURSELF
  • HUMBLE YOURSELF
  • ADD VALUE WHENEVER POSSIBLE
  • BE INTENTIONAL
  • SEEK OUT A MENTOR WHO HAS INTEGRITY
  • ASK MORE
  • GIVE MORE
  • SERVE MORE

 

DO THOSE THINGS.
EVERY DAY.
EVERY SINGLE DAY.
EVEN WHEN IT HURTS.
EVEN WHEN YOU WANT TO GIVE UP.
EVERY DAY.  EVERY DAY.
ONE DAY AND ONE MOMENT AT A TIME.
THAT’S THE SECRET. NOTHING MORE.

 

*PRO TIP: It is painful to do this alone.

Intentionally seek out a Mentor, Mastermind or Focus Group, or Coach to assist you specifically in setting goals & staying accountable to your goals. Why? Because it is difficult to stay focused, inspired, and diligent every day. And that is exactly what it takes. Period.

 

Mentoring others is one of the greatest joys in my life.

Over the course of 26 years I have made thousands of millions of mistakes, maybe more.

The best part?

Sharing my mistakes and lessons with YOU: a fellow traveler… a survivor, doer, lover, conqueror, believer, wife, husband, friend, or parent just like me.

A powerful, inspired, amazing human with the capacity to share hope, love greatly and make a huge impact in the life of others.

Yes, you.

“But Athena, you don’t understand where I came from… my upbringing… I’m not equipped. I don’t have what it takes to be amazing…you don’t understand… I CAN’T!”

 

Yes, You Can!

 

Even if you had dysfunction and poor role models growing up.

Even if you had no role model.

Even if the level of dysfunction you experienced in your life has crippled you for decades.

Does all of that matter to me? YES. However it is completely insignificant at this moment, as it pertains to your highest potential.

(Believe me, if you wanna talk about police activity, drug houses, abuse, near-death-experiences, dysfunction, and family-of-origin-ridiculousness… we could share stories for days.)

What matters is NOW.  Right now.

 

You have already taken the first step.

You are here.

Would you like to live your life with faith, joy and purpose?

YES.

Otherwise you wouldn’t still be sitting here reading this website right now about how I can support you. Help you. COACH YOU!

You have made a conscious choice to break the cycle of whatever dysfunction you’ve lived through and become all the LEADER God created you to be.

This is where I come in.

This is why I am here.

This is my purpose.

I am passionate about supporting YOU on your journey toward wholeness.

I can’t wait to add value and help create a difference in YOUR life.

I finally found a way to spend my days this side of heaven helping OTHERS become free from the shame & bondage of their past.

A Privilege

I am counting my blessings & giving God the glory for allowing me this privilege. Yes, having you here right now is a privilege.

I consider it a privilege to serve you.

I consider it a privilege to stand beside you as you overcome your struggles, hurts, and disappointments.

I consider it a privilege to be with you when you become the most amazing LEADER you can be.

The person God created you to be.

Oh, by the way, I get it… you might not be here for you… in fact you may rarely do anything for “you”.

You’re perhaps here for your kids /spouse /family /boss…the list goes on.

I get it.

Been there.

And I also want you to know – that is more than ok, in fact it is fantastic!

I am proud of you for being intentional. It is not easy to reach out for support.

You are here now because you’ve consciously decided either you or someone you love deeply deserves a chance.

Perhaps a chance you were not given.

 

A chance at a healthy life and a bright future.

Well done.

This is a turning point for you, this is where your journey gets good GREAT!
