How 7 Simple Words Changed My Life – Jen Sugermeyer : Author, Speaker, Coach and Life Changer
From fear to fearless, Jen took her scars and shattered pieces and took back the life that was taken from her. Broken and ashamed, Jen led a double-life before everyone’s eyes, and was slowly dying inside. Afraid of the repercussions of asking for help, admitting she had a problem, and taking the time to unravel years of damage, for over two decades Jen couldn’t manage to break the cycle of addiction in her life. Her pain came not only from her own abuse, but the physical and mental abuse she endured in an abusive relationship.
In and out of jails and hospitals, Jen’s life was entirely unmanageable- she was only able keep her corporate life isolated, but she knew she was playing with fire. Jen knew it wasn’t long until her hidden life would be exposed at the office- her inner demon was getting stronger and stronger and she was losing control of her progressive disease.
Lying to cover her physical and emotional bruises, Jen was at her breaking point….until her life changed.
It was none of her lows or her bottoms that changed her life- it was the kind words uttered by someone who genuinely cared that made her realize that she was worth fighting for- and that’s what she did.
Jen embarked on the fight of her life- for her life- and she aims to share her strength and encourage others to claim the life they deserve!

About Beyond the Bars with Rob Lohman:
Alteration. Conversion. Transformation. Adaptation. No matter how you label it, the capacity for humans to alter their own perspectives through lived experience and new found focus in order to find purpose and direction in life is fascinating to watch and listen to.
Rob Lohman is an agent for these things, for growth and change. He works tirelessly to broadcast his podcast ‘Beyond The Bars Radio’ on the Mental Health News Radio network and he does it with a soft approach that doesn’t just sound genuine. His inspiration to create his show stems from the goal of transformation. For himself as he continues to add to a solid foundation of faith, family and friends. Transformation implies in the human sense a “thorough or dramatic change in form or appearance” and in his view that is the only way to attain happiness.
The theme of his show is a hybrid mission statement based on his experiences with addiction, incarceration, his journey in recovery and his goals in advocacy.
Rob carries himself with such humility and grace that makes you want to open up and share right back. It’s inspiring, listening to him read passages of his chosen books and other materials on his Facebook live streams, too. His soft sense of understanding comes across easily and he makes it recovery seem possible.
