Surrendering That Which We  Cannot Control

Surrendering That Which We Cannot Control

Surrender. Relinquishing control. It sounds powerless, like a weakness.

But I’ve experienced the exact opposite. Through surrender, I believe we are given more life, more freedom, more hope.

Growth in Unexpected Places

Growth in Unexpected Places

For over a year now, I have strapped myself into two braces–one for my knee and one for my ankle–on a daily basis. Three times per brace, per day. When done perfectly, it takes 4.5 hours. It’s a major chunk of my day.

I never imagined these braces would still be part of my life at this point. But here we are.

And this is what I know now: growth comes from unexpected places.

I am a writer.

I am a writer.

My parents can attest to the fact that I loved to read before I even knew how. But once I learned, writing quickly followed.

Becoming a published author has been a dream since childhood.

But, for one reason or another, I’ve never considered myself a writer. Until now.

Choosing Faith Over Fear

God has shown up time and time again throughout my health journey. And I trust that He will answer my prayers because the Bible is clear: ask God in faith, and He will provide.

Health Becoming My Full-Time Job

Health Becoming My Full-Time Job

Making my health my number one priority wasn’t a simple process.

I had to release the fear of others not understanding my choice as well as the need to make other people happy.

There was a lot of prayer, hours upon hours of conversation with close family and friends, and a whole lot of encouragement from people who had to tell me it was okay before I believed it myself.

Maybe you’ve been there too?
