What You Will Learn In This Episode
In this episode, Connie Benjamin shares her experience when she thought her daughter would die and the lessons she learned from it. Connie explores how we can be present in the moments when everything feels like it is falling apart.
Why I Needed To Share This With You
I have to admit that even as I look at that title, a feeling of anxiety swells within me. I recorded this episode at a point in my life when I was going through one of the scariest times of my life.
My daughter Zoe got sick…I mean really sick. What appeared to be a really persistent regular sickness quickly turned with very little signs into a life threating condition. At midnight one night, I found myself on a small plane with my daughter strapped to a gurney holding my daughter’s hand in mine wondering if she would live. I was terrified.
Although this challenge was so hard to go through, I am grateful for it because of what it taught me about love, faith, and what is most important in this life.
In this episode, I share my lessons from going through this experience and what it taught me about facing challenges with faith and love. I share what it taught me about what is most important in this life, and how to be present with the people we love when we are thrown about in the storms of life.
I hope this story helps you in some way in your own life. I know it has helped me tremendously in mine. We all go through hard things. It is part of this life and although at the time it really, really sucks, if we pay attention to the lessons we can learn from it, we are strengthened and become more of who we are meant to be, so we can do what we are meant to do. I would love to hear your lesson from this interview. Please let me know in the reviews what your lesson is. I want to learn from you too 🙂
Who is Connie Benjamin?
Connie Benjamin is an international speaker and author of the upcoming book Women With Fire…6 Secrets to Purpose, Profit, and Passion. She is also the host of My Fire Within Radio. After sharing her message from the stage with thousands of people, she realized women entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs who want to make a difference in the world through their work without losing their family, or their sanity needed a book to guide them in how to do it.
Connie discovered it was possible to have it all, at the right time, and in the right order, after she learned about Higher Laws principles. Now, she dedicates her time to sharing her knowledge with female self-starters to help them improve their lives. These principles helped Connie restore her marriage from feeling disconnected to being better than the day she and her husband Andy were married! These principles also helped her replace her day job income, as she found renewed love in being a stay-at-home mom with her three daughters, and recovered her health.
Connie knows how essential it is to give back, so she is donating all the profits from the first edition of her book Women With Fire to charity to help families in developing countries access clean water.
