Inspirational Stories

When I say that you can have a fulfilling life without children, do you believe me?

I thought not.

It’s a bold statement and when I was standing where you are now, I’m not sure I believed it either.

You don’t have to believe me.

However maybe you’ll believe the other women (and 1 man) who tell their stories here.

In each story, you will read how each became childless and what they did to heal their grief and welcome joy into their life. Each is different and many are ‘normal’ women sharing their story with the world for the first time.

Once you’ve read a selection, I have two suggestions.

  1. If you feel energised and inspired but aren’t sure how you can get that life, hop on over to find out more about my book ‘Finding Joy Beyond Childlessness: Inspiring Stories to Guide You to a Fulfilling Life.

In it I’ll guide you to that fulfilling life which is yours for the taking.

  1. If you’d like to share your story. Drop me an email and I’ll send you a list of questions for you to answer.

I’m not sure, how can you persuade me?

I know it can be hard to be open about who you are and what you’ve been through. And I also know from personal experience that keeping part of your story secret gives that part extraordinary power over you.

When you tell it you take back the ownership and the power. You can decide exactly how it’s written, you can say, yes this was really hard but then I got help & I’m okay now.

If you’d like to or you have any questions please drop me a line at info(at)LesleyPyne(dot)co(dot)uk

Thank you so much for helping other women by sharing your story.
