Christina Bacon is a Spiritual Transformational Speaker, Re-Storyteller, Philanthropist, and a current college student of Criminal Justice-Social Work & Sociology. She is a single mother of eight beautiful children and grandmother to three grandchildren. She also shares her home with a feisty cat named Leo. For years, Christina lived with a broken life. She grew up watching the devastating affects of alcohol. She watched her mother get physically and mentally abused in the home by the hands of her father. This led to a lot of insecurities as a child. She lost her virginity to a rape when she was 14 years old and had an abortion when she was 15. She became an unwed mom by the age of 19 and has endured the collapse of two failed marriages. In 2016, her life took an unexpected turn. While training for a triathlon, she found herself in the hospital with a blood clot in the lung and was put on blood thinners. While preparing for the removal of a mass in her esophagus, a tumor was found on the backside of her stomach. It was cancer! Christina was facing death’s door. It was in that moment she realized the most valuable gift she could give herself was time. So she decided to take time being more present to herself, to those around her and to be more present. This led her on a path to find true wholeness and healing; she began seeking guidance from mentors and spiritual teachers. Her story is one that leaves her physically, mentally, emotionally, socially, and spiritually alive.
Today, Christina's passion and heart is to help others on their journey to wholeness, healing and "re-storying" the experiences they have had. Through a combination of mindfulness, meditation, prayer, the arts, and the power of the narrative story, she hopes to encourage others to come out from the shadows of their past, move into the present, and look forward to a more fulfilling future. Her motto is: "If we want to heal the world we must start by healing ourselves - body, heart, mind, soul, and spirit - one story at a time."
I am not talking about where you grew up, who your parents were, or where you went to school, etc. I mean what is the narrative in your mind that you tell yourself about events that have happened in your life?
Everyday we use stories ... to inform, to connect with others, to share our feelings and experiences, and even to sort out our own thoughts and feelings. Stories are used to organize our thoughts, find meaning and purpose, and establish our sense of identity in this confusing and sometimes lonely world.

Intention is much more powerful when it comes from a place of contentment. Stay centered and refuse to be influenced by other people’s doubts or criticisms.
We are called to the practice of forgiveness. Only when we forgive those who cause us pain, then can we bring it to the world. Forgiveness offers the heart’s mercy that our hurt and fear have withheld for so long.
To recognize the suffering of others and wishing for the alleviation of their suffering. Regardless of religious beliefs, race, nationality, social status, gender, or even whether someone is a friend or someone has harmed us. It extends even to animals and plants. It is completely unconditional.
Slowing down, takinto stock, and expressing gratitude for the good moments and grace for the difficult one. Gratitude gets at the very essence of what it means to be created, finite, fallen, redeemed, and sustained by the God of all grace.
Peace with all our imperfections, inside and out. Choosing to live in such a way that you do not betray your own heart. Making choices that enable you to grow into a more loving, compassionate, and forgiving person.
"It is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, and creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper or more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path." BBrown
Learning to let go of how we thought our life would be. What are you holding on to right now that’s holding you back? What joy might you be missing out on while focusing on things that never came to be?
Something is lost when we get so busy and consumed with productivity that we find ourselves speeding through our days instead of savoring them. Busyness robs us of the gift right in front of us
Take time to celebrate the ordinary in your lives and with those who have touched your life in meaningful ways. Celebrations are the gifts you give yourself and to others that cannot be replaced.
... we are more than we'd ever thought possible.
... the beauty of the greatest light in the universe shines within.
... the greatest gift we give is the essence of our life and being.

"Musicians Nino Patel and Daniel Nahmod brought together dozens of people from around the world to create this beautiful, heart-opening melody. Inspired by the 21-Day Gratitude Challenge, the song is a celebration of our spirit and all that is a blessing in life. Gratefulness is a habit cultivated consciously and a muscle built over time." - Empty Hands Music
"Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all others." Cicero
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. " Melody Beattie
"When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself." Tecumseh
