Anne Desjardins – The Silver Lyming

Anne’s story is one that has taken her from a place of hopelessness and despair to one of hope, healing, and the strong desire to help others.

Anne’s dream is to provide a place of healing and hope for those recovering from Lyme, and tick-born illnesses. She struggled to find out what was going wrong with her body for seven years, before she got a true diagnosis. She has healed herself from Lyme disease, bartonella, anaplasmosis, cytomegalovrius, elevated levels of Epstein Barr virus, HPV and cervical dysplasia that was nearly cancerous. She did her best to utilize Western medicine, but found greater success when combining it, or completely going outside of it with Eastern medicine, Herbs, and energy work.

Three Years

Three years ago today, Sandy, Youk, and I set out on this crazy full-time RV journey.

Since that time, we’ve been to 43 states and a little piece of Canada.  We have traveled over 56,000 miles, and made countless new friends and memories.  We’ve been awed by God’s beautiful creation time and time again.  We have visited family and friends that we hadn’t seen in years.  We have also made sure to get back to see our family and friends that we had left back in Pennsylvania often.

In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Tara & Trina O’Brien.

Trina and Tara O’Brien are partners in life and business. Moms of boy/girl twins, together they’ve created Power Mom. They are educators, coaches, speakers, health and wellness enthusiasts, and “all things” sports lovers. Using the Power Mom 4 Power Components, they empower moms to be strong and confident . . . all without mom guilt.

Trina grew up in Southern California while, Tara was born and raised in Long Island, NY. From the fields of AYSO in Southern California and her team, Orange Crush, to the Shooting Stars of Plainview, Old Bethpage Soccer Club, at young ages, both Trina and Tara fell in love with soccer. West coast met East coast in South Florida, where both played collegiate soccer and, years later, became a couple. In soccer terms, they joke Tara is the power while Trina is the finesse, the perfect combination for success.

Tara played Division 1 Soccer in Boca Raton, Florida, at Florida Atlantic University. Over the course of her four years, she proved her skills as a strong forward by being her team’s leading scorer.
