It’s raining as Betsy Murphy is on the way to sign her divorce papers. It’s been ten years, she’s had four children, how did this happen? Still, she and her ex are still friends. After signing the papers, she gets a sore throat and loses her voice for three weeks.
Two years later she tries to join eHarmony (their site has pictures of how she wants her life to look) but they reject her because her personality is not optimal for a long-term relationship. She tries psychics, retreats, gurus, etc, and nothing is helping her fill the void she feels in her life.
After another 10 years her children decide to go live with their father. Still searching for her truth, she thinks she has it figured out when Menopause hits. However, she is given a chance to make a real difference in the world so she jumps on it.
She ends up in Zimbabwe during the most severe economic crisis they’ve ever endured. She’s caring for children that have been abandoned by their parents because they can’t afford to feed or care for them, The heat is unbearable, she doesn’t know anyone and she is allergic to everything.
Into her life comes a handsome professional soccer player who takes her on a journey to find her lost spirituality, connection to the earth, the truth of who she really is, and her divine destiny. These lessons are not easy and do come with a cost but they also allow her to finally find her voice.
Come witness her story.
