Mary Lisa is Beautiful : An addiction counselor and strong wife

Beautiful Girl of the Week is a series of Beautiful Girls who are stand outs for what they contribute to the world through their beautiful actions!  We feature the Beautiful Girl of the Week on the Rewrite Beautiful blog as an attempt to inspire other girls and women to use their own gifts and talents to impact their communities. Our hope is that bringing positive attention to women’s actions will inspire them to embrace their own creative calling!

Mary and I go way back! Whenever I think of Mary I think of her passion for helping women restore their lives from drugs and alcohol. This is not an easy passion to have. Having worked in an eating disorder and chemical addiction rehab myself, I can tell you that this is a emotionally, physically and spiritually taxing job, yet Mary's passion for this demographic of women increases with each year. Find out what fuels Mary and makes this beautiful woman tick! 

Irvina: Tell us about a fun project you’re currently working on?

Mary Lisa: Counseling women from the Rose Rehab recovering from addiction and other issues. Being a new wife and homemaker.

Irvina: What are you passionate about?

Mary Lisa: Jesus, really, hope for the brokenhearted, restoration and seeing the light go on in others lives.

Irvina: What do you do for fun?

Mary Lisa: Get massages for $15 an hour in Little Saigon! Pedicures, date nights with my hubby and spending time with my family and friends.

Irvina: Which action of CREATIVITY, KINDNESS and STRENGTH do you think you most exhibit in your community and WHY?

Mary Lisa: I think I exhibit strength.. When I think or feel there is nothing left to keep on, the impossible happens and I have a renewed strength that gives me enough to go yet again. Other times I rest and find strength in that too.

Irvina: Who is the most beautiful woman you know and why?

Mary Lisa: Mother Theresa. She loved the unlovable.

Irvina:  What do you wish young women knew about beauty?

Mary Lisa: A beautiful heart on the inside makes the outside prettier.
