During the personal retreat I attended, I had no idea what was about to happen in my life. But I believe now that the reason I was able to deal with my circumstances so well, was a direct result of being with Dr. Jaffe in the previous month.

I attended an apprenticeship in October of 2013. In January 2014, my husband was diagnosed with a very aggressive Stage 3 cancer of the Esophagus. Being a family with four boys under the age of 10, this was a devastating blow to our family.

During the diagnosis and subsequent treatment time period, I was able to walk with grace, ease, and a fortitude that I had never witnessed in myself previously.
It was as if I had been transported to live in a different realm, seeing God’s hand in each moment, regardless of what the outside picture appeared to be. I experienced my sadness, joy, fear, and happiness all through different lenses.

Life had been forever changed.

I am still living in this realm, and no matter what the world can send in my direction, I am walking a free person. Feeling love, peace, joy and freedom with each step.

Thank you Dr. Jaffe, for what you have helped me to reach, and become!
