A teen Mom I loved you, before you were born.


I had to grow up fast it wasn’t about me. Only thinking of a better life with you.


My child you mean the world to me, this poem celebrates you.  


The day you were born Heaven opened and spoke-then there were you, an angel.


Innocent, precious and new…


As you grew to use your wings to soar.

Then there were you, my child. I would know you anywhere.


Your smile sweetly warms my heart.

Your eyes sparkle brighten my day.

Your touch gently soothes me.

Your smell invigorates emotions in my soul.

Your voice calmly gives me peace.

Was all uniquely you.


Along the way I lost my way. Please forgive me. Daddy hitting Mommy is never okay.

 It was not your fault. My child, you always deserve the best that I have.


Then there was you, the diamond in my eyes and me broken and bruised. 

Because of me, so were you experiencing my pain. No one-including you and me deserves to be treated less than the best.


It was never your fault.


I am responsible for you, my child. It’s not your fault you couldn’t save me.


 Forgiveness is for us. 


Then there were you with me. I love you, my child.

By Denise Marie Hardnett

No More

I just want you to know that you are unique, important, and special. It’s only one YOU. So, please don’t forget that just because I did.

Because of pain, I allowed others to treat me a certain way. I learned it’s never too late to change. Start where you are now. Right Now!!! Learn from your past, don’t live there or continue to let it define YOU.

No More.


Value yourself, your time, and your morals no matter what others may say or think. Manage all of you, that includes your feelings, your emotions, and your triggers for the best YOU.


If the person that say they love you barely calls, show up, or follows through, then they’re not for YOU.

No More.


Let them go, let go of the pain, let go of worry, or whatever wastes your time, money, or energy.


YOU decide how long you sit in your pain.

No More.


Once you make up your mind to say No More, the pain has no more power over YOU.


You don’t need anyone to say I’m sorry for you to heal, grow, or change.


YOU free yourself to live in your greatness. Let the right people, places, and things in your life.


Allow yourself to be worthy, happy and peaceful.


By Denise M. Hardnett


You are so appreciate and blessed to be able to help others in so many ways.


Listening to them and their concerns.

Helping with solutions.

Offering your love, food, friendship,care, loyalty, and the list can go on and on.

In the mist of all that, please remember to take care of you.

Self care is essential. Take time to breathe. Live like it’s your last breath.

Be happy with you and enjoy even though tough times.

Be awesome and continue to believe in you.

Have a blessed day and always.

Teens this is for you!

“Ms. Hardnett’s story is one of triumph over inner and outer demons. Her abiding faith and her refusal to be defined by others’ negative opinions allow her to move from sorrow and helplessness to joy and self-determination. Her story is a roadmap for others who find themselves in circumstances that threaten their physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.” -William Greer, LCSW, LPCCEO Emeritus, Journey Mental Health Center, Inc

You are in control of your destiny. Choose, not to let your current situation, stop you from doing what’s best for you, like self care, knowing you are worthy, and focus on where you want to go in life or be. You can achieve what you can see. So, cut out pictures of your goals, dreams, and destiny. Always believe in yourself!

Yes, it will get tough, or hard. But, never give up. We all can believe and learn how to do something that’s hard or tough. Think about ways to achieve by finding a way, even if you ask for help. I am a problem solver.

Asking for help is okay. That’s even a smart thing to do. I am smart!

I am confident.

My appearance is important, but my self-worth and abilities is even greater. I love me.

This special book for teens is designs for you. It’s a book to encourage, empower, forgiveness, and healing overcoming to experience of domestic violence and abuse. With a journal, workbook, and activities for you to write and share.

A message just for you

Good Morning and Good Evening friends,

Its been a rough 2020, but especially harder for the ones dealing with emotional, mentally, and physical abuse. I talk with lots of women via helpline calls and emails.

No one has the right to tell you what to do or when to leave. Only you can make that choice for you.

When you decide:

  1. Get a safety plan and practice it.
  2. Create a safe word to use when you are in danger.
  3. Plan it out. Collect important documents, money and put in a safe place.
  4. Notify school and work.

Uniquely YOU

I love this quote by Mandy Hale.

This quote represents my books to be published 2021.

I have grown so much. Learning and definitely doing new things like being transparent.

I’m free to be ME. I see my beauty through my flawed imperfections. I Love ME!

My adult book Love Doesn’t Have To Hurt a survivor of mental and physical abuse to healing. Sharing her story to help others. Not afraid to be what God wanted me to be.

My Unique Self.

Post what is unique about you that you can use to help empower others?

Thanks for visiting and share.



Stay tuned.

New Beginning

Good morning family and friends , I’m glad you decided to visit and Welcome if this is your first time here, and Welcome back if it’s not. Happy Blessed New Year!

Time for New beginning, so excited.

First, I would like to recap my 2020.


I completed my children’s book I Love ME and teen book I Love ME From Pieces Made Whole to be published soon in 2021.

I am editing my adult book Love Doesn’t Have To Hurt.

Each book has jewelry pieces and personal care items just for you to win.

Each new year is a time for growth and change. How can we be better?

Start a journal, it will help you put a lot of things in focus.

Feel free to comment and share what you have going on for 2021. I’m waiting to hear from you.



Forgiveness is for you!

The greatest love of all!
New year equals new possibilities

Bring in the New Year happy and whole! Let go and let God.

Life is too short to hang on to things that we can’t change.

People are dying every day. So let’s focus on the LOVE and FORGIVENESS.

God taught me to love with a pure heart. It didn’t happened over night. I had to process my emotions and feelings by writing them down.

Writing down the pain of the person that you trusted with your heart, love and apart of your life. With God we can forgive them.

I am willing to forgive. You know forgiveness is for ME.

Think about it. As long as you hate or hang on to unforgiveness. It’s like a prison for you. Meaning your happiness and joy stop.

The Process…Think about it?

We must find the love, the courage to forgive them. When you forgive them, only to free yourself. When you forgive them it is not only pleasing to God but it will be pleasing to you as well.  We must live our life to do good and that same goodness will one day come back to us.  Don’t worry it will find you.

It’s also wise to forgive when you have children together. Children love unconditional, with that being said your children will love the abuser anyway.  Please never talk bad about the other person.  Your children will find out in other ways.

What happens…..When you forgive:
1. You free yourself
2. You don’t feel anger or hate when someone bring up their name.
3. The thought of them, don’t mess you up inside.

4.Effect your day.
5. When you can stand to face them and be great.
6. Hear their voice. Remember what happen without the pain.

7.  You feel love and then you want to continue to share that love.

8.  You tell others, so they can be feel to love too.  After all, sharing is caring!

You must forgive everyone that hurt you. When you’re able to forgive, that’s when you’re healing process begins. Once your start you’re healing process, yes, it will hurt at first. Each day will get better and better.

Then you will grow and discover the love and beauty within you. Like a beautiful butterfly, blossoming flower, or praise dancing or Like a boy becoming a man.

I telling you this process because I lived with my abuser so many years and I have forgiven him and myself.  Forgiveness is so beautiful and its a gift you give yourself.  Forgiveness is Victory
