Prayers for you and your family. Family must come first for without them and their love, there is nothing.


As one who has faught with depression, you can win and be back better than when you went into the darkness. Your family is KEY and that's why Heavenly Father makes it very clear how important families are. I think it's such a good thing that you have pulled back and have been transparent with everyone. That shows the strength of character that is a base quality that resides inside of you. God bless you Dina, all will be made right, just move with prayer and faith.


Dina, you and your family are in my prayers. Grace and strength to you.

Sara Carns

Take care of yourself, Dina! I hope you and your family find some peace during these crazy times. Depression is a horrible liar. Stay strong and give each other lots of hugs... And Popsicles. Popsicles are happiness on a stick. And it's still pretty hot here in Arizona. :)


Do what you gotta do, Dina, the rest will sort itself out. Take good care of you and your loved ones.


Thinking of you and your guys, sending big hugz, X Lia

Hi Dina, take hold and be brave! We will ALL wait until you're ready to return to us. La famiglia! With heartfelt admiration, Lillian


There is no apologies needed: you and your family can not be replaced in any way. You are what matters the most, so if you need to cancel and be home do that.
Classes can always be rescheduled and even though I know some might be frustrated at first, they can understand.
Love to you and your men <3

Prayers coming your way. The most important thing for you to do right now is what you are doing...stepping back from travel and teaching and taking the time to care for yourself and those you love. May God smile upon all of you and bring you peace!!!!

Prayers for strength, wisdom and comfort for the entire family.
Take Care
