A Small Town Girl Finding Serenity
by Dorothy Riegel
(Jefferson City, MO USA)
I have participated in Don's weekend workshops, Adult/Child Retreat, and Serenity Cafe' groups on Saturday Mornings. All of these events have been a lifeline to me. Even though it is hard for me to express my feelings at this time I find it very helpful to contain my raging episodes of anger and hurt.
I certainly would recommend these groups/workshops/retreats to everyone. I do tell others about my experiences and have had people express interest in coming to the meetings as they have similar hurtful pasts to work through.
It is hard to say which is my "favorite" because each one is beneficial in its own way for me. I am just so happy to have this built into my life now. I feel an anchor, safety net and security within me that I have never felt before.
This is WONDERFUL!!! I cannot imagine not moving forward with this wonderful network of friends and people who share my common interest of wanting to get better and live a happy life. As time progresses I will be able to share my life story and hopefully not shock the world! I want to be free and live out my life with dignity and purpose.
I am so appreciative of Don for extending himself along with Angie whom I adore. They are the breath of fresh air that came across my path by Devine Design. I feel they are responsible for my acceleration to a higher level of growing as a person and hope for significance for a better life.
