Felicity, It’s wonderful to hear from you! Are you back home again?

Thanking you for sharing your struggles and your needs. I know it’s been a tough 3 months for you, and it was just off the radar to focus on caring for yourself. I’m glad you’re back here among your sisters and I’m praying for you. If there’s anything else I can do let me know. Ena

About The Author

Hi! My name is Ena. I often get asked where my name came from so I'll start by saying that I was born in The Netherlands. I have lived most of my life in Michigan, and have been married to my great husband for 46 years. We have 2 children and 7 grandchildren (6 boys, 1 girl). I'm a nurse by profession. I have known Jesus since I was a little girl, and gave my life to Him fully when I was 16 years old. I have struggled with being overweight since my son was born 38 years ago. I have tried about every weight loss program imaginable except surgery, with either little success or with some success, only to gain the weight back. I went through the Breakthrough Program in early 2017. It was here that I learned that losing weight, keeping weight off, and maintaining good health is not about sheer will power! I learned that how I handle food can be connected to deep seated emotions, and that my relationship with my Heavenly Father is so important to caring for my body well and living a healthy lifestyle. I find the weight being released gradually, and this is how it should be as I learn more about myself and God's unconditional love for me. I love how Cathy teaches every lesson using Scripture, and I'm so grateful to God for leading me to the Breakthrough Program! I look forward to continuing this journey with all of you.
