Meaningful has grown out of the personal contemplation, study and life experience of the author. Starting her search for meaning in her teenage years, Olivia engaged thoughtfully, logically and intuitively in this quest. Life, fate and God took her to study Theology at Oxford, many fortunate opportunities beyond and the birth of 4 children. However in 2012 the wind changed with her husbands brain tumour and surgery rendering him virtually blind, without health, employment and a home. She would say that having a source of meaning outside of oneself is a vital part of surviving and living well through life’s challenges.
She believes that each of us has the capacity to discern meaning through an honest searching approach to life and as we search for greater meaning using mind and heart so we will find it and know our lives to be ultimately meaningful.
