Her choice to heal and deal HOPE is stirring quite a movement within individuals who realize they too are HOPE DEALERS & ready to deal it! Lorinda compares the compelling truth in the natural, with a negative connotation of a “dealer” to that of a positive connotation of a spiritual DEALER ,and as a HOPE DEALER she charges Warriors to  recognize the powerful reset withIN, encourages you to press reset and give yourself a 1,000 second chances, coaches you through the dealing process, and instructs you on ways to protect your promise through HOPE, love, and self care, afterwards.
