In my last post - Healing Hurts (but it's worth it) - I wrote about how difficult it can be to endure a season of healing and the reasons we should push through. This post will focus on what we can do once we've said "yes" and committed to the journey. Again, it won't be … Continue reading Healing Hurts (Part 2): 5 Tips to Persevere
When you're hurting, the advice is to "give it time". Time heals all wounds, right? What no one tells you is that time alone isn't enough. Healing has to be intentional. They also don't tell you that healing is not easy. It hurts. For those of you who can wake up one day, truly unbothered … Continue reading Healing Hurts (but it’s worth it)
I Quit. I threw my hands up and said "I don't want to do it anymore". I'm tired. I'm confused. I'm frustrated. I'm emotional. My feelings are hurt.I feel stupid. I. Give. Up. I'm done trying. I'm throwing in the towel. Moving forward. Don't care anymore. Forget it. Over it. *insert shrug emoji* And on … Continue reading I Gave Up & God Took Over
"Cast your cares on Him for He cares for you."1 Peter 5:7 Lately this line has been on repeat in my mind. As I think about the season I'm in, I'm frequently reminded that I don't have to have all the answers. I don't have to figure everything out today. I don't have to worry … Continue reading Growing in God: He Cares for You

Four times in the past week, He's reminded me of the same message. God's timing is PERFECT. I want to use this moment to share how He's been speaking this to me and share what's on my heart regarding the topic. Tuesday, April 28 - I've had the same electric keyboard (piano) since I was … Continue reading His Perfect Timing
What's holding you back? I don't mean what external factors are keeping you from progressing. I'm not talking about the financial barriers, the lack of time, or the attitudes of others that may slow you down. Our circumstances change, people come and go, we have winning seasons, and we suffer losses, too. Because our circumstances … Continue reading Internal Battles
I am a SURVIVOR. A survivor of suicide. A survivor of abuse. And a survivor of so much more. I’ve been through a lot, BUT GOD! I'm beginning to see how my trials and tribulations are for my GOOD. God has been revealing the WHY to me. Why I had to go through what I went through, and … Continue reading But God….
How often do we question God? Act as though we don't trust Him? Act as if He has never done a single good thing for us? How often do we go through our every day lives and never even stop to thank Him for even the small things He's doing in those very moments? How … Continue reading When God Came Through
Lately, God has been pushing me to write more about what I'm currently in rather than waiting until I've overcome it to share the struggle - so here I am.
