It’s About Freaking Time!

Last summer I spent a week in Northern California with television host Rebecca Kimbel, spending hours each day interviewing and talking between interviews. Like me, Rebecca grew up in the A.U.B. but was privy to information that I didn’t have because of her Allred heritage. As a commoner, my information was second-hand.

Rebecca and I laughed later that we should have been recording our off camera 550173_twisted-treeinterviews because they were often very funny as well as insightful. I how I wish we could create a family tree – what a twisted mess that would be!

And yes, there was gossip too…. Wow, did I learn a few things about a few people that I never knew. Once again I discovered that men I once worshiped made less than admirable choices.

So, why is it about freaking time? I finally got around uploading ALL of the interviews!

Rebecca sent me a stack of CD’s with our interviews for me to upload onto You Tube. I put the polygamy interviews on my Polygamist’s Daughter You Tube and all of the rest on my official Victoria Reynolds You Tube channel.

I’ve sorted them into an easy playlist of television interviews (a few are not with Rebecca) for you to follow and keep track of.

7 of the videos are based on the principles in my Transcending Fear book, so they are a nice little bonus for you readers out there.

Each video is a teaching video of approximately 28 minutes and have been edited for television episodes. So, grab a cup of coffee, head to my You Tube channel, and get ready for some witty banter conversation and heart-centered learning.

Until next time, be Fearless, Fabulous and Free!

From Bullied to Bodacious

As a child I was punished for being strong-willed, independent, daring and free-spirited. I was a precocious child who could see and think outside of the carefully crafted box my parents put me in.  My defiance against the system that used terror to control me made my father punish me all the more. Now, before I sound like a whiner, my well-meaning parents were simply over-protective and did the best they could with what they knew. They believed in a God that bullied them and unleashed His punishments if they failed to control me.

The continual pounding on my body, mind and heart finally broke my spirit and my will, just the way parents believed I needed to be.

I grew up with the archaic belief that, “a child’s will needs to be broken” and “you must come to God with a broken spirit.” By the time I reached my teens I felt sufficiently broken. What I didn’t know then that I know now, is that the extent of trauma I experienced at the hands of my peers, occurred because I had already been traumatized as a child.

In my research I’ve discovered that individuals with low self-esteem make easy targets for relentless bullies, and those who cannot develop resilience often end up in self-destructive behavior.

It took a very long time for me to put the pieces of myself back together, re-build my will and heal my broken spirit. It turns out they never really broke me, just damaged my ability to recognize my light myself. The spirit, just like the body, can be healed and restored. Now I’m back to my strong-willed, free-spirited, bold and audacious self.
