2022 is over and I’ve honestly never been so glad for a year to end. My theme of the year is to Count it All Joy. To do that, I knew that once the new year started I needed to make some changes. After a year of chaos and some out of character behavior I … Continue reading The Purge
December is just dark. A dark month but full of festive lights. It’s the holiday season and I’ve felt so many mixed emotions, ups and downs. Part of those feelings is gratitude with a side of confusion. A year ago I was in a much different place with so many unknowns — do I have … Continue reading Waiting for the Light
I haven’t blogged in a while mainly because I just didn’t know what u wanted to say. The month is coming to a close and so much has happened.

I come out of it feeling like I’ve lost so much; specifically my ovary which contains much of my hope … Continue reading Failure to thrive in adult
It is not weakness to accept that you lack the capacity to do something. It’s actually strength.
In my free time I consider myself an activist. I enjoy learning about justice and advocating for people who are oppressed. I enjoy learning and the harms that society has brought on the most vulnerable and thinking of ways to heal those harms. I also am a Christian. I love Jesus, I read my Bible … Continue reading The grace of God is a miracle

She later commented that she wouldn’t support her because she wasn’t pro-life. That was the one issue that was non-negotiable for her. … Continue reading Should We Reclaim Pro-Life?
