In this episode, we’re going to be talking about a story of redemption and forgiveness.

Growing up, Stephanie Thornton Plymale, faced a life full of hardship: Hunger, poverty, homelessness, foster homes, ongoing sexual abuse, and a perpetually absent mother who was mentally ill and spent most of her life in and out of jails and psych wards.

In her memoir, "The American Daughter", she goes in depth into the painful events of her life and the shocking revelations she had after reuniting with her terminally-ill mother.

Stephanie is the CEO of Heritage School of Interior Design and the founder of the Heritage Home Foundation, a nonprofit serving families transitioning from homelessness. She continues to live a balanced family life with her husband and three children.

Join me for this profound and uplifting conversation where we cover some of the major themes in the book. Stephanie offers advice on how we can cope with trauma, reckon with a difficult past, and transform our pain into something positive.
