Founder and President of Joyful Living Services
Brenda first became aware of her health about 29 years ago. She didn't realize at that time how important a good diet, good supplements and a good mental and emotional outlook were. By the time she realized these things were important she had already begun an ulcer, was close to a nervous breakdown and was addicted to over-the-counter laxatives. Additionally, she suffered from ulcerated colitis, chronic back pain and chronic hives on her arms and legs. She decided to take responsibility for her health and began a healing process she would never have imagined could be possible.
Brenda has focused her attention on healing all parts of her being. She has learned how to take care of her emotional, physical and spiritual being. She has learned how to express ALL that SHE IS and has been developing her knowledge, self-confidence and awareness.
Brenda's Purpose in Life Is To Teach Others How To Heal Their Mind, Body and Spirit. Brenda intends to devote herself to this process and in so doing will gain empowerment to continue her growth as an emotional, physical and spiritual human being!
