Shame

The woman I am today is a long way from the girl who was unsuspectingly groomed by a man or who lied to try and keep up a "good" persona. I have so much life experience, good bad or indifferent, I have lived and grown. I have to acknowledge where I was wrong and where it was my fault, so I can see the good and be free.

Book 2

Today, I'm reviewing the second book I finished in my book challenge. It's called Letters to Saint Lydia by Melinda Johnson. Okay, not going to lie... I read this book in 5.5, maybe 6, hours on the same day I finished The Holy Angels and LOVED every minute of it. Yes I was then up way too late and was very tire the next morning, but I still think it was worth it.

Grieving the Past, Hoping for the Future

Today I would like to talk about a very personal struggle I have had in my adulthood. While I actually find that most conversations around this topic are deep and meaningful, there is also a stigma about it and I am cautious to bring it up. Ian and I have suffered multiple miscarriages. It is hard and sad and I am not looking for pity, but am wanting to open the conversation up for those going through similar pain. 

Scripture Activity

In this exercise, I discovered how incredibly fun and enlightening it can be to read just snippets of the bible. Sometimes it is all really daunting to me and I have to put the good book to the side for a while.  In just looking for one verse, I read from several books I have not made it to and in some cases read much more that just the intended verse, because I felt drawn in. It wasn't daunting, I knew I could stop at any time and I didn't have to read a whole book. It was so refreshing.
