Joining Licensed Professional Counselor Michelle Nietert today on Counselor Thoughts is Mary DeMuth, author of 30 books translated into 5 languages and the founder of the Restory Conference, a local event coming to the DFW area on September 16th. In this episode, Mary and Michelle discuss the idea not only of reframing a life event but also seeing the hope that comes when we heal from our past.  Whether it involves traumatic relationships, divorce, a move or ending of a relationship or friendship we once held dear, many of us long to restory our lives so that we can create a new story filled with belonging, freedom and new life.  The discussion also includes practical ways a parent can coach their children towards healthy friendships and specific ways they can pray for their children as they face life struggles.

If you’d like more information on Mary and her resources please visit The Restory Conference is a Saturday morning event and ticket prices will increase on September 8th.  I’d love to see you there and you can learn more about the conference and purchase tickets at
