Triggers Don’t Equal Toxicity


It’s been difficult to scribe much of anything outside my journal or on my social media outlets – through some private groups I’ve been a part of recently for bible studies. I’ve had the words, but the emotions behind them have been challenging for me to bring forth in a published post. It all started when I started The Broken…

Recovery of America


Politics. That’s the new word to examine everything by in our culture today. The more I read any media sources, the more I discover how much we’re all being lured into the same temptation to identify ourselves by our politics. Identifying ourselves with anything outside of God renders us continually empty. The word politics is a “science of government” and objectifies…

What is Recovery?


It’s been a struggle to re-engage in my writing over the last year. Once a habit is broken and has been replaced with other things, it’s difficult to get back to a place of re-engagement. However, like the pause my husband is taking right now from working on his master’s degree, I needed a pause from consistent published-focused writing. I needed…

On Shame, Grace and Love

On and on and on it goes on Twitter and the media, and people are eating this stuff up left…

My friends, your voices are heard, and your feelings are validated. I’m not here to dismiss anything you’ve been through, or what you truly…

Let’s Become Joy Seekers


Below is a post I made on my Facebook page earlier this week, and in sharing it here, I seek to elaborate my focus: Joy. Joy, in Christ – this is now what I am seeking. What I am chasing. My passion above all other passions to protect and live responsibly and consciously in the moment (the present). It’s really hit…

The Importance of Accountability


Matthew 18:20 states that where there are two or three gathered in Jesus’s name, he is there. In turn, 1 Thessalonians 5:11 encourages us to encourage and build one another up. Considering these two verses, it’s clear that God never intends for us to go through anything in life alone. In fact, He didn’t fashion us for isolation – but instead,…
