Love the Homeless – Lessons from Sandy Griffin
I’ve heard a lot about Sandy Griffin, a professional speaker, life coach, author and a tireless advocate for the homeless. I knew she was out there on the front lines daily, and I wanted to talk to her.
We met at a Radiant Health Institute workshop. Long after the talk she gave was over, her message stuck with me: “Find out who you are first before you go out to serve the world.”
Sandy has been dubbed ‘Life’s Cheerleader,’ but like all people who bring us joy, she understands suffering and is not afraid to show pain. If you hang around her long enough, she will pull two red noses out of her purse and hand you one, saying “You have to be able to laugh at yourself.” And you will be compelled to put one on your nose immediately.
She grew up in a family of twelve kids. She was a compulsive overeater for thirty years, and she’s survived cancer three times. When her marriage of twenty years ended in a divorce, she felt completely lost. <<< read more here
