Join Christene for a viewing of her session during our Third Annual National Caregiving Conference:

Finding Faith Through Fury on Friday, Nov. 9, at 3 p.m.
Becoming a caregiver is a role that most of us never think about when we are young. When I pictured my life, I never pictured having a child that would be 19 and still need me for every aspect of his life, literally every single part. I never imagined I’d leave a career I worked so hard to attain. I never dreamed that I’d face a dismal social life. I never thought that I would have to think that doing something as simple as grocery shopping would forever become an event of monumental proportions. But, these are all avenues on my road of life. And along the road, I became angry. I was angry at everything and everyone from my DNA to my family and friends, from myself, to, yes, even to God. I lost my faith. I lost my desire to connect. I lost my desire for life.

During our time together, I will bring you along my journey and help you see the other side. I will share how I learned to tame the fury, to love again and move forward with a different mindset in faith and help you move along on your own path. You can find faith through your fury.

Christene is a mom, an entrepreneur, an author, an educator and follower of Christ, not necessarily in that order. Becoming a parent changed her life, 21 years ago. However, when her second child was born, she had no idea what God had in store. Her world was turned upside down when she added the title of lifetime caregiver. Everything changed and nothing was as planned.

She shares a message of responsibility to live the best life possible, regardless of the current situation. Her transition back to her faith was a journey of a thousand miles. And her path led her to an enlightenment of faith, perseverance and determination. The desire to share her message was planted long ago.
