Who is Jaycee Lee Dugard?

Jaycee Dugard, mostly known as a woman who was once kidnapped as a little girl and held captive for many grueling years. While not making light of any part of what Jaycee endured, it is her current mindset and the place that she is in now that captured me the most.

According to her interview with Diane Sawyer, Jaycee explained how she has overcome the evil that was done to her. She not only refused to allow the man that stole her childhood to take anymore of her life by refusing to be angry towards him but she made the decision to live and not die.

**If you haven’t seen the interview please watch at:

It takes a woman of strength to live life purposefully after experiencing such devastating series of circumstances. It takes a woman of strength to forgive those who have wronged her. Some of you may relate to different parts of her story if not the entire story.

I wanted to share her story because I haven’t been through what Jaycee has been through. And the best candidate to encourage someone else is a person who has been through that particular situation or one similar to it. However, I can relate to being wronged and forgiving the person who wronged me.

            A Strong Woman vs. A Woman of Strength

A strong woman works out everyday to keep her body in shape…
But a woman of strength builds relationships to keep her soul in shape

A strong woman isn't afraid of anything…
But a woman of strength shows courage in the midst of fear.

A strong woman won't let anyone get the better of her…
But a woman of strength gives the best of herself to everyone.

A strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same in the future…
A woman of strength realises life's mistakes can also be unexpected blessings, and capitalises on them

A strong woman wears a look of confidence on her face…
But a woman of strength wears grace.

A strong woman has faith that she is strong enough for the journey…
But a woman of strength has faith that it is in the journey that she will become strong.
