THE PERFECT STORM
Terry has an amazing story of personal and professional growth and transformation. He and his wife Carolyn experienced the “perfect storm” of grief and loss and learned how to go beyond resiliency to unlock their potential and experience growth.
Beginning in 2004 they put their lives “on hold” to become caregivers to Terry’s father who was in the late stages of Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and ALS. Then within only a few months, they found themselves coping with debilitating grief after losing 5 immediate family members, followed by the loss of Terry’s career, their entire network of friends and dealing with an empty nest. Then with finances spiraling out of control, they experienced the heartbreak of foreclosure. They felt alone, disillusioned, and powerless.
However, Terry and Carolyn have always believed that personal determination, stick-to-itiveness, and faith can lead to the miraculous. Their profound journey of overcoming these life-altering events gives them a genuine and direct approach to transcending life’s tragedies. Their personal resolve, values, love, and faith are central to empowering those shattered by difficulties. Their story helps others to become stronger, wiser, and better equipped to rise above adversity and start living again. By sharing their story, Terry motivates change in the people, leaders, and groups he speaks to.
RECOVERY – RESILIENCY – GROWTH
Incredibly, Terry views he and his wife’s experiences as a tremendous gift, one that’s helped them to find strength, resiliency, and growth and has ultimately become their life’s work.
Since those devastating events, Terry has continued to move forward with his life and ministry and presently owns and operates his own business. He and Carolyn have been married for well over 40 years and have two adult children.
Terry serves others as a speaker, coach, and consultant challenging individuals, leaders, and ministries to find the advantage in their adversity, the possibilities in their pain and do more than bounce back, but to actually grow forward.
Terry Walters brings an array of experience and education to his speaking, leadership coaching and consulting that will help you get unstuck, bounce back, and grow forward with vision, clarity, and joy.
