About Liz

Liz Woodley, Pastor’s Wife and First Lady, Mother and Grandmother of a large blended family, successful IT Executive, former Chief Information Officer, Author, Motivational Speaker, Certified Life, Financial & Spiritual Coach, and Friend among other titles, is a survivor with stories to tell, and experiences to share.

Having survived childhood abandonment, physical abuse, divorce, depression, and  the loss of her oldest son and siblings, while gaining her Master’s Degree in Information Technology and climbing the corporate ladder, she also became a Christian and had to learn a thing or two about forgiveness and dealing with past trauma.

She wrote her first book ‘From One Statistic To Another, Against All Odds’ she chose to use the  pen name Valentina Journey. Valentina means courageous and this is a story of her courageous journey from a teenaged single mom to a Chief Information Office (CIO) against many obstacles. Now writing her second book, Love Made Me Do It, due to be released in 2022.

In whatever role she plays in your life, you are sure to find the wisdom she has gained and so willingly shares helpful for your journey as many other already have.
