BIZBoost News featuring Dr. Norma McLauchlin
As an author and speaker, Dr. Norma continues to uplift and help others by touching on topics such as Faith and Purpose After Trauma, Becoming a Successful Author, Managing Through Stress, Women Empowerment, and Education.
During the month of May, Dr. Norma has been shining light and advocating for mental health awareness. She shared in her interview via Bronze Magazine that as a child, Norma saw firsthand what happened when mental illness was left unchecked, untreated, and unspoken. Mental health can be very taboo and often people that need help remain silent out of shame or a lack of understanding from those around them. The encounters throughout her childhood compelled Norma to research the issues that crippled her family and quickly learned that she was not alone. Her research became reality when mental illness reared its ugly head and struck her when she least expected it. Norma discovered that proper care and treatment turned a once frightening diagnosis into a manageable disease. This sparked her journey to understand it better and share her knowledge with others. Norma now desires to encourage and enlighten families by showing them there is hope for individuals experiencing mental illness and how families can care for them together.

Dr. Norma is looking for people who have testimonies of overcoming unforgiveness. If you have overcome this difficult challenge in your life, she wants to hear from you! Sharing your story can help others who are struggling with the same issue. If you are willing to share your story with us, it could make a big difference in someone else’s life. Submit your testimony today by emailing: [email protected]
Dr. Norma wants people to know that even as a Christian, forgiveness will not always come easy. Self-preservation is the first law of man; therefore, in your natural state, your first instinct is to protect yourself when injured. Physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Consequently, your Christ-like attributes of grace, mercy, and forgiveness take a backseat when you believe you have been offended. So, the question becomes, “Is forgiveness a conscious decision, a physical act involving your intellect, or is it a feeling or emotional state of being?” The Bible provides insight and answers to many more frequent questions concerning forgiveness. You may also find answers in her studies on forgiveness.
The Pro Publishing House
Currently working on her book chapter for the anthology titled “The Retreat”. At the moment the book is scheduled to be released in July 2022 during Forgiveness month. A conference is also in the works by Norma around forgiveness, followed by a Retreat in September. Dr. Norma plans to release a novella about forgiveness at that time as well.
