The Horses help me Survive!

Wendi Morin is known as the "Shoe Whisperer". For decades, she has used her talents to help clients around the Twin Cities find the perfect fitting shoe by analyzing gait, posture, and body position. Her work brings a  harmony and comfort to the bodies of those she has helped. How do I know? I  am one of the clients whose life and career was changed after being introduced to Wendi 8 years ago. Having undergone two back surgeries and regularly suffering from pain as a result of 40 years of dentistry practice, I didn't know where to turn to find relief. That is, until Wendi entered my life. By working with her and being fitted with shoes that perfectly suited my daily work routine, she extended my career, allowing me to practice comfortably, be active, and live fully until retirement without more surgery. She continues to use her talents to improve the lives of hundreds of people.

Wendi's path has not been an easy one. She grew up in a physically and mentally abusive, degrading environment which left an indelible mark on her soul. For decades, she has suffered periods of deep depression, suicidal actions, and feeling of no self worth. This has left her unable to work or barely function for months at a time. But recently, Wendi found a path towards self- acceptance and value through a special bond with horses Whiskey and Gracie. Whiskey , like Wendi was harshly mistreated and Gracie was the bottom horse of her herd. They recognize her pain, and together, the three of them are healing each other, slowly yet deeply.
 
 
 
Wendi is working towards a goal of bringing Whiskey and Gracie to live with her at her home in Hanover  across from the miles of horse trails in Crow Hassan Regional Park. But in order to do that she needs a fence to keep them safe. That fence needs to be built this winter so she can bring them home in the spring. This GoFundMe page is to help Wendi raise the money she needs to build the fence for her horses. Please consider the impact that Wendi has had on your life and the impact we can all make on hers by helping her on her path to healing and a better life.
