Peggy Easterling grew up in East Texas, a carefree child who spent every Sunday at her grandparent’s home after church playing and laughing with her cousins outdoors. She grew up in such a large family, they didn’t have to invite the neighbor kids over to have a full baseball team. They built forts and played pretend together and would dance and sing carefree. The pretend play gained a different meaning for Peggy when at age 8 she became the victim of sexual abuse by her grandfather. She no longer pretended with dolls and laughter but was told to pretend that the trauma never occurred. She still went to the grandparent’s home weekly but watched over her shoulder in fear that the abuse could reoccur. This led to a consistent state of fight or flight, wiring her brain in self-protection, and pushing away authentic relationships due to distrust. Although God used her to do some amazing things in her early life in spite of her skeletons, it was not until her 40s that Peggy became fed up with the fake, phony smile. With help, she finally unpacked and surrendered the basement of her heart to Christ, learned to smile from within, and have fun and enjoy life again. Peggy is making it her life’s mission to help other women smile from the inside out. She wants to wrap loving arms around the child still balled up in darkness within women and show them they can have fun, be playful, and love to live again. She founded The Mindset School to forever be a student of renewing her mind the way God intended and to help others do the same.
