"Scars are Stories...Share Yours"

Journey Through Living is a venture started by Lisa Borchardt in Lincoln, Nebraska. Lisa is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in her 22nd year of practice. She continues to assist, counsel and empower victims & survivors of disheartening life events. Lisa walks along side individuals experiencing loss and grief. She helps people identify the tangible and intangible losses they have suffered, release pain and focus on healthy healing & hope.

Lisa was selected to perform in Ignite Lincoln 6 at the Rococo Theatre in Lincoln, Nebraska on September 18, 2014. Her presentation was titled "Scars are Stories...Share Yours!" Please watch the video of her performance above or on You Tube. Lisa is available to deliver a longer version of this presentation as a Keynote Speaker or in a workshop.
