New Opportunities

I had to retire early from my career in the juvenile justice field. I was only in my early 40’s. Thankfully, God was not finished with me. In the past ten years, God has allowed me to take on several new roles. Here are some of the opportunities God has blessed me to be part of:

Abolitionist

Missionary

Blogger

Encourager

Author

Thought Leader

Speaker

Prayer Warrior

Health Advocate

Blessed Overcomer

Ten years ago, I could have allowed my health issues to become my identity. But God had other plans for me. I had to make the choice to keep living and thriving. I pray you will make the choice to look past your current circumstances and choose to keep thriving and making a difference. ~OC

Health Advocate

I am a professional patient. Nothing I am excited about. Definitely nothing to brag about. It’s just a fact. The past 17 years, I have learned a lot about the medical field and being a patient. Of course, I didn’t learn all this overnight. My wife Laura and I have made some mistakes along the way. Listened to some doctors when we really should have been kicking them to the curb. In a nice way of course. The biggest lesson we have learned is you have to be your own health advocate. If you are not physically, mentally or emotionally able to take that role on, please find a trusted family member or friend to take on that role for you. You might need more than one advocate. Being your own health advocate or entrusting someone with that role is one of the best decisions you will make during your health journey.~OC
