Shelley’s Morning Keynote:
Recognizing The Negative Beliefs We Create from the Pain of Betrayal”

After sharing her personal journey of betrayal and redemption, Shelley will share about an important part of her recovery – recognizing how the wounds of both childhood and betrayal developed into negative beliefs that altered the way she saw the world.  It’s these negative beliefs, so deeply rooted, that caused a big problem in Shelley’s life – insecurity.  No better way to fight insecurity than to go directly to the source and expose the lies.  Women will walk away with a plan to expose their negative beliefs they may have been carrying around for years.

Shelley’s Afternoon Keynote:
“Sledge Hammer: Destroying the Negative Beliefs and Replacing Them with Empowerment”

In our afternoon closing session, Shelley will share a couple of tools she has used to work through the negative beliefs and the process of replacing them with empowering beliefs.  Shelley will also talk about why it’s so important for us as women to embrace our worthiness (the opposite of insecurity). Shelley will provide time for Q and A at the close of this session.
