Dearest Future Jenny,
It’s amazing all that has happened in the last ten years. So much has occurred since you began your “little program” to help others, especially women, learn about their worth and dignity and value. Can you believe it?! It has now been translated into so many languages and adapted to fit so many different cultures. And it all began with your desire to find healing for yourself and then wanting to share that healing with others.
I remember it well. It all started with your desire to find your own healing and wholeness. You looked into so many areas of study, techniques, and methods that you searched and tried out as you learned, you kept finding ways that pieced back together your own brokenness. Then when you met Valentin, he encouraged you and supported you in your dream of putting something together for others. I remember how he said you could put anything you wanted into the program and that he would support you and work with you.
But then, sadly, he got sick and died so quickly and unexpectedly. I remember his last words to you, “¡Tú puedes!” You didn’t believe his words and you didn’t believe in yourself. You wanted to give it all up. But when you were invited to give your program at that firs church, you decided to do it in honor and memory of Valentin. He would be so proud of you! But then it stopped after four years until you took that workshop Discern, Dream and Scheme. That was the time when everything sparked back into life.
It was during that time that you really got to the root of all that had been keeping you back and stuck. It was during that time in your prayer time that you heard the words of love, acceptance and support that you had never heard from your dad that you finally heard deep inside you. I remember how the last vestiges of self-doubt, self-rejection, and lack of acceptance and value melted away with those words ringing inside you said by your dad. And I remember how he promised to help you in everything you wanted to do from then on. He opened so many doors and windows for you to bring your teachings and work to others.
Now so many people, both men and women, have learned how much they are really worth, how much value they all hold, no matter what negative messages they may have gotten before, no matter how broken they may have been. Your simple and wise teachings have changed the world and the church for the better. Thank you for taking the steps to bring those teachings to others; thank you for being willing to grow and risk being rejected and “not good enough.” Thank you for rejecting those negative messages and instead listening to the voice of Sophia deep within you. That has made all the difference in this world.
I love you.
Your younger Jenny
