Okay, so this post is very open and raw. I have made myself vulnerable in order to reach you. I'm telling another part of my story. I believe that God wants to use all of our experiences as a way to connect with--and maybe bring hope to--another person's heart. I'm really glad that He does… Continue reading God Is The Great “Recycler”
The words I used to put after "I am" were not very nice words at all. I didn't like myself much. I felt like I could never measure up or please everyone, although I spent most of my waking minutes trying.

In describing myself, I’ll borrow from one of… Continue reading This Exciting Thing Happened!

Oh darling, don't you know that who you are is the most amazing and fabulous gift to the world? Who you are is full of wonder and possibility. You deserve to be loved and fulfilled in what you do.
