Dr. Gary Lawrence and his wife Sylvia Lawrence
As it turned out, being forced into bankruptcy and having our home of 18 years sold at auction, had positioned me at the age of 64 to help people on a level I would have never imagined possible.
Where I Was…
My wife Sylvia and I have been married 48 years. We have two wonderful sons, two precious daughters-in-law, seven fantastic grandchildren. We founded and directed New Life Dynamics Christian Counseling Center for 23 years. I was also the host of the live radio program, “Life Mastery Radio” with Dr. Gary for 20 years. We retired from that busy life when I was 59 years old in May of 2003 and six weeks later, we uncovered the fact that we had lost 60% of our retirement portfolio in the stock crash.
NO GOLDEN YEARS OF RETIREMENT FOR US!
I went into a pity party mode. Have you ever had a pity party? I was 59 at the time and found out real quick, there was no big demand for retired Marriage and Family Counselors. What was I to do? The pity party continued for 5 years, I had done everything right and everything went wrong! I was in the valley of inertia for five years and by February of 2009, I was facing bankruptcy and foreclosure. I was broke, I didn’t know what to do. I was leaning over the precipice of poverty and I didn’t like what I saw. I DON’T DO POVERTY AND I DON’T DO BROKE! As many are today, I was hanging on by my fingertips.
How I Turned Life Around…
Then in September of 2009, at the age of 64 I was introduced to an amazing Community of Real Estate Investors. I had met several of the key leaders, attended several functions and as I experienced the depth of their integrity and character, I knew I had found the path out of my “forest” of self pity and insanity. I began a new journey and became an active member of this community of investors. I had no money, no credit and was still facing bankruptcy and foreclosure. I decided to put my blinders on, not look to the right or to the left and get focused. In ten days, I raised the money for my re-education with the Renatus Real Estate Investment Education classes and have never looked back. In my first full year as a real estate investor, I generated just under $200,000 for Sylvia and I and our investor partners. Renatus is a Latin term for “rebirth”. We have certainly been rebirthed and restored financially.
I’m a well educated man. My degrees consist of a graduate of Theology, B.A., M.A. in Pastoral Counseling and a Doctorate of Ministry. I tell people now, “I have five slightly used degrees for sale, make me an offer”. I’m grateful for the education and degrees I have accomplished and the thousands of people I have been able to help over the years, but now it was time for me to move forward and build the “Capstone of My Professional Career”. We are grateful to the Lord for blessing us with a very large income from my real estate investing and my new marketing business. I am also back on the radio with “Gary Lawrence Live”. It is aired on KPXQ radio, 1360 AM, Monday – Friday at 10:30 am.
I’m back in the business of helping people learn how to gain their freedom mentally, emotionally, spiritually and financially. REMEMBER THIS:
“THE BEST WAY TO PREDICT THE FUTURE IS TO CREATE IT!”
