Several years ago I walked into Suzanne Keenon’s office on my lunch hour from work. I was a very desperate and depressed woman. I had low self-esteem and found it difficult to deal with personal and professional relationships as well. I had lost faith in mankind and was struggling with my relationship with God.
Within a few visits with her, I realized that God had sent me to her. Not just because I needed a psychological healing but because I needed a spiritual healing as well. I had no idea that Fox Valley Institute was a Christian counseling service.
Suzanne walked with me through some of the toughest moments in my life. She counseled, coached, listened, ministered and laughed with me. Suzanne gave me the psychological tools and advice that have made such a positive difference in my life. When negative actions and/or words are directed at me I am now able to diffuse the situation with a positive attitude. I have let go of the “old” me who would respond with negative actions and/or words and react in a positive, calm demeanor. The “new” me lets go and lets God.
My favorite one-liner to the Lord is a quote Suzanne shared with, “Lord, please take me out of the Darkness and into the Light”.
