 "My brokenness is a better bridge for people

than my pretend wholeness ever was." ~ Sheila Walsh

I tend to be very transparent about many of the experiences I’ve survived. People often question why I am as open as I am. I don’t understand the question because to me the...

"Reminder: You don't have to rebuild a relationship

with everyone you've forgiven. Just because you are at peace,

I used to be quite a mess. There were people that watched me grow up who probably thought I was incorrigible and that I would never amount to anything. I’m pleased to say that they were wrong.

Every situation that we will face in this life is meant to teach us something. Nothing ever happens to us that has not been filtered lovingly through the fingers of our God.

We have free will, therefore we get to make decisions all along the way regarding who we allow i...
