How to Believe in Yourself and the Power to Succeed

Wendy Spooner understands the pain of defeat and easily gave up when trying something new. Like many others, she did not believe in herself...or her power to succeed. But, as an adult, she learned that failures are part of success -- a crucial learning tool on the path to success.

Wendy Wilson Spooner, Lic. G., LCoT, is a professional Genetic Genealogist by day, a writer by night, and an artist in between.

Wendy Spooner

Her love of what we can learn from history compels her to write the true stories she unearths during research, and she has found that truth is indeed much more exciting and inspiring than fiction.

As an award-winning family history writer, Wendy turned to novel writing to share faith, grief, art, and overcoming obstacles in life. She believes in learning from our ancestors by honoring them. 

Emory University's study on children and teens knowing their family history showed that kids who knew the answers to 20 specific questions had higher self-esteem, higher grades in school, and great confidence in the success of their family. 

Her interview encourages us to share our history with our children and enlightening as to how it builds positivity. You do not want to miss the opportunity for a FREE gift so be sure to listen to the end of the interview.

How Do You Overcome Trauma, Betrayal, and Brokenness and Achieve Success?

What do you do when life sends trauma and pain where you hoped for love and kindness?  Have you felt broken? Betrayed? Traumatized? Rena Groot endured years of abuse that could have destroyed her. But she realized she had a choice to allow it to make or break her spirit. 

Rena was abandoned, rejected, and unloved during her entire childhood while being tossed into horrific foster care homes repeatedly. By the time she was 21 years old, she did not know if she wanted to live another day and then a miracle sprung into her life. 

Broken to Beautiful

As a little girl walking into her first-grade classroom, she was awestruck and knew she wanted to be a teacher. She was able to realize that dream and earned a Bachelor of Education and a Master of Religious Education. She taught in Canada and China where she wrote her memoir under a mosquito net and became addicted to writing. 

Rena became an ambassador with "The Department of Eternal Affairs" for Haiti, Belize, the Ghetto in New York City, behind the Iron Curtain in Poland and Romania, in Israel, China, Thailand, Mexico, Africa, and Greece. 

During her interview, she shares a remarkable story of survival against all odds with a surprise outcome that will encourage you.  

A Life Set Free is a moving testimony of the liberating power of God's love to bring healing to broken lives. Rena's personal story, simply told in both humility and triumph, will convince you that nothing is impossible when you surrender to God.

Her many colorful adventures are a catalog of miracles that most of us dream about. Let them touch your heart!
