Meet Chrissy....

Chrissy is our new Davis County Chair, she will be doing most of the logistical work for Easy to Love's Davis County groups. Jen & I will still be actively involved but will probably alternate coming. This will make running and managing Easy to Love as a whole much more manageable! Chrissy is going to be a wonderful fit and asset to the group. She is spunky, fun and energetic, and has already done so much to help our group grow!
Here is a little more about her!! 

Chrissy Young has been married for 18 years and is a mother of 3 boys ages 12, 9 & almost 5! Family is her number 1 priority and she loves them so much.
Discovering her oldest son had ADD, Anxiety, Depression & some OCD six years ago really frightened her. She just wanted to be able to give him the world and have the world love him as much as she does. She would lie awake many nights wondering what to do?... Medicate or don't medicate? Strict diet or not? Therapy or no therapy? Label my child in school as different or not? The list goes on & on.
Chrissy decided to educate herself on everything to help her son cope & exist with others. She learned to listen to the very important mommy voice that truly does direct moms to know what is the best for their child.
She has learned so much from so many good friends who are going through similar situations. They have loved & supported her through many hard days, nights, & cries. 
Chrissy loves people! She is passionate about being an advocate for her children, building a better community for them to live in, & giving back or paying forward all that so many have done for her & her family.
Chrissy is excited to help the Easy to Love, Hard to Raise parent support group in Davis County. "I Love that it is a support group for any parent struggling with a difficult child whether diagnosed or not. Parents need other parents to help figure out & support one another. I am a true believer that it takes a town to raise a child. What a great way to help others & be helped in return."

So along with Chrissy being Davis County Chair, we are also moving the location of our Davis group. While we are very grateful that DBH so willingly accommodated our group, we feel like our new location will be a better fit. It is only about 5 minutes away from our previous location & still in Layton.
