The rePurposed Life (LivingFreeWithDisabilities)
Encourage others to live more fully with fun, faith, and hope; share my oil painting; (3) write about my experiences, and encourage others to live more passionately.

Being diagnosed with myotonic dystrophy defines my physical limitations, but it does not define me. At first, it was difficult to walk. Then, I needed a cane. Eventually, an electric wheelchair became my mode of transportation. Living in a mobility-challenged world may structure my daily living, but it does not limit my possibilities. Without the distraction of physical activities, I have found my passions: (1) Encouraging others to live more fully with fun, faith, and hope; (2) finding freedom in oil painting; (3) writing about my experiences; and (4) encouraging others to live more passionately. Disabilities are not limited to those with chronic illnesses. Many able-bodied people have forgotten how to have fun, faith, and hope.
