Hi, my name is June. I am a Mother, Wife, Sister, Victim Advocate,Survivor, Friend and a daughter of God who thinks a sense of humor is mandatory when dealing with life. I have four children who are great kids but far from perfect and I love them with everything I am. I have a good man who loves me and treats me far better than I deserve. My family mean the world to me, those who live close and those far away. I try to treat others kindly even if they are unkind to me. But if you hurt or mess with my loved ones, it will not be pretty. This is why I also choose to believe in Karma.   

I  share all the things that inspire, inform, support of or simply bring a smile to my  face as well as others.  Sometimes all you can do is laugh through the hard times, so why not practice and be good at it?  Unfortunately, I find myself smiling or laughing when it may not always be appropriate and I am a bit concerned about the rumor that "loud laughter" is not appreciated in Heaven. I can usually find something to laugh about in any circumstance, and that still gets me in a bit of trouble. So do chocolate, fried zucchini and cheese fries.

I am a fiercely loyal friend and count those friends as some of my greatest blessings. I have no patience for mean people, especially those who chose to bully the less fortunate. I am survivor sharing my story and using my voice/blog to help other women dealing with a wide range of issues like abuse, violence and neglect - especially against women & children. I have returned to college to do justice to those causes I hold near and dear to my heart.  Do not treat others disrespectfully, do not be cruel or spiteful just because you can, and you and I will not have a problem. After many years and pointless tears, I have found that when you replace what the world tell us is beautiful in a woman, with what God sees in us, that is when we are both beautiful and at peace with ourselves.

I have known sadness and pain so I do all I can to prevent others from experiencing the same. I have a desire from the depth of my soul to do something good with the life I have been take what life hands me- the good and the bad- and use it to bless the lives of others somehow. It's impossible to be perfect but I wont stop trying to be better. I have a testimony of the gospel and I have promised to listen to the promptings and share all the things my heart and spirit knows to be good and true. 

And THAT is why I write, why I am a blogger and why I choose to have a voice.
