Meet the Bloggist


Cindy Lou

Bloggist • Encourager • Overcomer

Professional: I have over 30 years of experiences as an Information Technology professional with a Project Management certification. My background contains a mix of corporate life and entrepreneurial pursuits.

Personal: I am the mother of 2 talented young men.

More personal: I was a highly functional alcoholic for many years. I successfully 'hid it' but eventually my comfortable life began to crumble. I chose to give it all up and surrender it at the foot of the cross. I found freedom from my addictive lifestyle and now have over 6 years of sobriety. I have learned a lot along the way and through Brighter 12, I will share a brighter freedom that is available to everyone.

It is my heart's desire to give back to the Lord for the great gift of sobriety that I have been given. Brighter12 is my way of encouraging others as they journey through recovery of all kinds.

The Approach

I hope to share the healing we can find through a walk with Jesus Christ.

Each Brighter12 blog post will contain a short insight for recovery and encouragement based on the bible. There may also be a song of praise to go along with the writings as well as a simple declaration that can be used to pull the thoughts together and personalize the day's thoughts.
