Sheena found her purpose after several years of running from the truth and repressing her childhood hurt and pain. Her parents divorced when she was 16 years old, which changed her mind and views about life, and left her with a broken heart. As a means to escape years of hurt and the sense of abandonment and rejection that she felt deep within, she began to look for herself and for love in all the wrong people, places and things. As the years passed, she excelled in academia, however, her relationships grew more unsuccessful and more toxic. Hurt turned into anger, anger turned into fear and fear turned into numbness. She hit a low point in her life (mentally and emotionally) shortly after the passing of her mother in 2012, and succumbed to a very dark place after the birth of her son in 2013 (where she was diagnosed with post partum depression). It was then when she realized that she could no longer operate in her own strength because everything she tried and did on her own, failed! It wasn't until she surrendered and asked God "to help her and take control," that she realized serious inner work and healing was needed. She then decided to do her work-the work that was necessary to begin her transformation towards healing and finding her true identity, in Christ. She was fully aware that it wouldn't be easy but she understood that it was a priority. The pieces of her life appeared to be shattered and scattered but she was willing and committed to pick up the broken pieces, put them back together and truly love herself so that she could walk boldly into her destiny and become the best version of herself that God designed and called her to be. With this in mind, she decided to no longer run from the hurt and pain, but to face it head on. She traded in her ashes for a crown of beauty, and God took her brokenness and turned it into something brand new!
