I met and married Bobby Ray Phills before I fully knew myself, and before we realized our potential separately or together. But we knew we shared a passion for impacting the lives of others.
Our time together became a defining era of my life for two reasons: I experienced the kind of love that nurtures confidence and I became a mother. After Bobby’s untimely death in 2000, it was that very confidence that enabled me to raise two little humans on my own.
It is in this season of my life, the lives of my children, and the climate of our culture, that birthing the Phills Foundation makes sense. We are inspired by a multi-generational eagerness to live with purpose and their generation’s keen sense of authenticity in that effort.
Your passion may be realized through a lifetime of trial and error, or it could take root before you even know yourself, through someone who genuinely sees you and recognizes that thing that lights you up. But most certainly, your passion’s greatest contribution is often birthed through your deepest pain.
