This weeks interview is with Penny Hodgson, author of Mind Files, Perception, Perspective & Problems.
Penny is a certified holistic therapeutic counselor and natural nutritionist who resides in Calgary, Alberta.
Being born with severe bilateral hip dysplasia caused Penny to walk with an exaggerated limp as a child, which resulted in years of being bullied, deep rooted feelings of shame, and layers and layers of anger. It would take over a dozen orthopedic surgeries performed in three different provinces by four different orthopedic surgeons over the course of thirty years to correct the skeletal deformity, and keep her walking pain free.
Penny’s life challenges weren’t limited to just physical limitations, she was molested by a family member from the age of ten through to the age of fourteen, and raped by the father of two children she was babysitting when she was just thirteen years old.
The perspectives developed during these and earlier experiences set the course for decades of resentment, conflict, frustration, and anger. Learning the importance of developing a relationship with God, and listening to the internal guidance from her Spirit helped Penny find her way to true forgiveness, peace and happiness. Working her way through the files in the filing cabinets of her own mind laid the foundation for Perception, Perspective and Problems.
