Minnesota author, Meg Blaine Corrigan, will share her amazing, inspiring story at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3, at the First Lutheran Church in Rush City.
Cake and coffee will be served following the program. The program is free and open to all. It is hosted by the Rush City Women’s Club, P.E.O. Chapter FL and First Lutheran’s WELCA.
Corrigan, the author of “Then I am Strong Moving from My Mother’s Daughter to God’s Child,” tells stories of wisdom, strength, fear, joy and risk-taking.
Daughter of a raging alcoholic mother, and survivor of sexual assault at gunpoint, Corrigan has shaken a dismal past and flung herself into the arms of Christ, who sustains her in her daily walk of grace.
She shares with her listeners her incredible story of surviving and thriving through many trials during her seven decades walking this fragile earth. She has been described as a Renaissance Woman, integrating her formal training in psychology and counseling, an enlightening experience as a percussionist for a Polynesian show troupe, and most recently as an inspirational author and blogger.
Her exposure to many life experiences has enriched her passion for spreading Christ’s word and helping other trauma survivors. She has a Master’s Degree in guidance and counseling and 30-plus years of experience in the field of counseling and social work. She lives in Lake Elmo, Minnesota, with the love of her life, Patrick, and their formerly disenfranchised rescue dog Ginger.
