"Everybody has stuff!" That's right. We all go through the ups and downs of life and sometimes the "downs" overshadow the "ups." Whether you have been through the painful divorce of your parents or your own, lived through abuse or are still living it, or generally feel like you don't matter, there is hope out of the ashes.

"Chained No More," a faith-based radio show is a place where people genuinely care about and understand what you are living. You will be given quality resources to help you rise from the ashes of hurtful situations. We will not "beat you over the head with a Bible," but will combine faith and practical tools to help you move forward toward a much healthier and happier future.

Robyn has written "Chained No More...A Journey of Healing for the Adult Children of Divorce/Childhood Brokenness." The first version is a small group curriculum with a Leader Guide and Participant Book. The second version, released in 2014, is the self-discovery version, for individual study.

As an author, mentor, singer/songwriter, radio host, and speaker, her passion is to help people define themselves by who God says they are and not what anyone or anything has ever told them. Robyn has a huge heart for children of all ages and as a camp mom, she heard the pain of the campers. That moved her to write "Chained No More," so the adult children of divorce could find healing for the pain they brought into their adulthood.

Robyn and her husband of over 40 years, Ivan, reside in Oregon. They have two grown kids, a son-in-law and a grand dog, Braxton. Contact Robyn at and visit her website at
