Lori appears to be SuperGal. But privately, she anxiously battles to maintain control over her out-of-control life. She thought she could do anything but felt the pressure to do everything. There was no room for God in her realm.
SuperGal wasn’t looking for love, but when she meets handsome tenor Ben, her battle-hardened heart begins to melt. After only six short weeks, Lori’s joy turns to despair when Ben becomes critically ill. Suddenly, her carefully-constructed world begins to unravel.
As God and Satan lined up for the final, ultimate battle for Ben’s life and Lori’s soul, all she could do was stand near the door of the hospital room, helpless and broken. This SuperGal had to face her own failure as she faced this dying man. The fixer needed to be fixed.
But on that very night, Lori experiences a mysterious encounter that changes everything.
If you’re anything like me, and I think you probably are since you landed here on my website, you’re always busy! Stressed! Running yourself ragged. We women spend all of our time doing. Striving. Trying. Never saying “no.” Jobs, homes, kids, husbands, parents, friends, church, school…
Do you try to find your own solutions to life’s problems, depending on yourself alone? Do you try to control your circumstances out of fear? Live for the approval of someone else, sacrificing yourself to be a people pleaser?
Are you trying to live up to the world’s idea of an admirable woman?
Some SuperGals race around trying to achieve, while others are secret SuperGals—struggling to find a way to survive today. But our pain is the same.
There’s a name for our burden, our weariness—The SuperGal Syndrome. What is it? What harm does it cause? And, how can we be healed?
Spending every day in the throes of the SuperGal Syndrome isn’t what Jesus had in mind when he said, “I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows).”
Jesus wasn’t talking about a life too full of stuff to do, or a life of struggle. Living with the SuperGal Syndrome isn’t living at all—it’s merely surviving.
God has shown me that we don’t need to stay bound by the chains of pride, guilt, perfectionism, and countless others that we have wrapped around ourselves.
Together we will learn to recognize, acknowledge, accept and escape our spiritual prisons.
Together we will find the path to God’s peace. And His joy. No matter our circumstances.
The cure is right here. In God’s Word. Hidden in plain sight. It’s been there all along.
I’m looking forward to sharing, studying and walking with you as we help one another along the road to SuperGal Recovery!
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me,
for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
