The high cost of living with a lie will be discussed at Lifetree Café.
The program, titled “Living a Lie: The Perils of a Double Life,” features the filmed story of Carol Grever, a woman who discovered after 30 years that her husband had been living a double life.
“Living with a secret is hell,” says Grever. “You can’t give yourself wholly to someone else if you’re hiding a secret.”
Participants will gain practical insights into coping with the pain of discovering double lives as they follow Grever’s journey toward forgiveness, growth, and hope.
This is a free event open to the public. Refreshments will be served along with open and honest conversation.

Knock Out Rett Syndrome, a wellness event for women and teen girls, is being held in honor of Evie and her Rett Sisters. All proceeds will go towards Team Evie’s run with Girl Power 2 Cure (501c3) at the Disney Princess Half Marathon in February 2015 and will help find a cure and support families living with Rett Syndrome.
Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder that robs girls of the ability to walk, talk, and use their hands purposefully. It is considered one of the most devastating forms of Autism which primarily affects girls. Evie also suffers from epilepsy and scoliosis. She requires assistance from a person or a piece of equpiment for every day activities like eating, sitting, bathing, standing, and playing. It has changed my life.

In January, I decided to take up boxing as a way to help strengthen my body and give me an outlet for my day to day stresses. I needed to be healthier physically and mentally so I could better care for my daughter. It has given me to courage and confidence to commit to running with Girl Power 2 Cure at the Disney Princess Half Marathon in 2015. It has also introduced me to some wonderful encouraging women who help push me to reach my goals and encourage me when I feel down.
Through Knock Out Rett, I hope to introduce others to boxing as a workout that helps build strength and confidence in their day to day lives. As an added bonus, your particpation in Knock Out Rett will help HOPE grow for thousands of girls (and boys) living with Rett Syndrome!
