Hello, this is Katherine Christensen. Welcome to New Joyful Life!
You may wonder who I am and why I am writing about a New Joyful Life.
To be brief, I experienced and witnessed abuse, physical and emotional, as a very young child and throughout my growing-up years. Yet I also had a lot of love and good experiences. Because I had both, I shut out the bad and focused on the good. It wasn’t until I went through a shocking divorce that I realized I’d married a man so much like my father, one who lived a double life and had a hidden dark side. I felt horrified that the abuse had made its way into my adult life, something I’d determined would not happen! Then I entered into a rebound marriage, plummeting downward for years into a spiral of contention, depression and low self-esteem. This negatively affected my children and our relationship. It was something I struggled against for many years. These were great trials, but I kept pushing forward to find answers and hope.
I knew that I was capable of living a much happier, more fulfilling life than the one I was living.
A New Joyful Life.
I’ve come a long way and want to share what I’ve learned with you. I want others who may feel hopeless, as I once did, to find their own hope. There is light at the end of the tunnel!
