    Lize's opening quote, her inner beauty, mesmerizing voice, and sense of wonder spoke volumes to my heart. Animals and children have long been my lifeline and connection to what is true. In our world as it is, my heart has been very heavy for the children I teach in kindergarten. While wanting to change the lives of those I know have been desecrated by the choices of those they "trusted" and not being able to do so. I have found through Lize's inspirational story, that I can help by sharing my "wonderland" with them and pray they find salvage as Lize has. God Bless you dear!

    As a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, I resonated deeply with so many layers of Lize's story and perspective. Here's to wonder, to the light and to being a wounded healer who these days assists others to also explore and journey towards their preferred narratives of their lives.

    Such a tender offering from the heart of a wounded healer. Lize in her own being is a mirror of alchemical presence.
