Welcome to darlenegiol.com
I am Darlene Giol, a lifetime Floridian that grew up in the Fabulous Florida Keys! This small town girl grew up on a chain of islands and is currently living in Davie, Florida (South Florida area), where it’s a little bit country, but a much faster pace than island life. I’ve been married to my husband Juan for almost 13 years now and we make the perfect team! Eleven years ago when we started growing our family, we decided I would enter into the Direct Sales industry as a business owner. We hoped it would be the key to a flexible schedule that would allow me to be at home for our kids and allow us to have more time together as a family. It has truly been a blessing! Six years ago our daughter was diagnosed with autism. I have struggled with anxiety for much of my life, but it wasn’t until her diagnosis that I realized I needed to make a conscious effort to search for peace daily. My faith has given me the strength I’ve needed on this journey and it’s been my primary source of peace. Along the way though, I’ve also learned a lot about myself, a lot about autism, and I’ve been able to pursue passions and interests that have really helped me to stay grounded and peace Full.
I’ve always been a storyteller and this blog is a little window into my peace journey. There are a lot of stories, tons of snapshots, a little bit of autism anecdotes, some products that bring me peace and lots of other things that I hope will bring you joy and serenity in your own life. As my daughter’s biggest advocate, I also hope to shed some light on autism and what life is like for families like ours. It’s by His grace that I am able to continue to pursue my passion for writing, share a lifestyle I have created, and enjoy a flexible schedule and multiple streams of income with businesses that I love. I’m so thankful for the opportunity to share all the things I love with you and to spread some light and peace.
This is the Peace to my Puzzle…
