stories & notes on grace & recovery


Dear Friend,

I’m not sure what brings you this way, but hello. I hope it’s not because you’ve been struggling and just because you like blogs with your coffee, but life doesn’t always lend itself to that, right? 

Personally, I’ve been in a season complete with equal parts heartbreak and growth as I untangle a relationship with my soon-to-be-ex husband. There’s a lot of pain there, but I’ve come to learn a lot about myself as a woman and the faithfulness of God.

I am here a little bit for myself and my healing, but mostly I am here for you.

I want you to know you are good. You are beautiful.

You are worthy of embracing an abundant and joy-filled life.

You are worthy of healthy relationships with others. Dysfunction and abuse can be hard to see from the inside, but I hope I can help you identify red flags and avoid any accompanying heartbreak. It’s possible to embrace what you deserve. You are not alone.

You are worthy of a healthy relationship with yourself. There is beauty built into the hearts and bodies we’ve been given, and while I learn to find joy in mine I hope I can encourage you on your journey towards health and wholeness.

Thank you for the chance to tell my story; stories tie us together in compassion and point us towards hope. 

Anyway, the point: there is restoration to be found and a good life to be lived. 

Welcome.

Love,

Me

The light shines the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
