Elizabeth Rhyno had just moved with her family from Canada to the US. It should have been an easy move. Everyone was used to relocating, her kids found the right schools and everything seemed fine. But in two weeks, everything seemed to unravel. Her middle son who had gotten into an incredible high school had a breakdown.


"I was thrown into this position of being a virtual mom. And I couldn't work yet due to immigration laws. So I lost my sense of identity and purpose."


Elizabeth plummeted into depression, experiencing a sense of grief, loss and purposeless. She notes that she ”felt inauthentic all the time, because I was trying to be so hopeful for (her family), but I literally had zero hope for myself."


But that bump in the road would be what sent her on her current path to a meaningful life. That, and a missive from out of the blue that said:


"Let Joy Loose. It was like this phrase just dropped into my heart."


Elizabeth will be hosting a retreat in Arcadia, Indiana September 22-24. For more information, contact her at



Coming Soon! The Book. Bump In The Road, Stories of Courage, Hope and Resilience, an inspiring anthology of overcoming life's bumps. Because everyone needs a bit of inspiration.
