Welcome TO MY Blog
If we haven't crossed paths before, let me fill you in...
Sometimes, life has a way of throwing curveballs when we're least prepared.
But here's the real deal - we are never, ever alone.
That's the promise of the gospel.
Since childhood, Psalm 23 has held a special place in my heart. Yet, during the challenging moments of my adult life, it transformed into my anchor, the gentle solace that guided me through my darkest hours. Psalm 23 makes me feel seen, understood and cradled, reminding me that God was and is there with me in the "green pastures" and "leading me beside still waters", as well as by my side "in the valley of the shadow of death." And after each one of us have experienced and walked through a pandemic, we understand the value of emotional and spiritual resilience in the face of life's uncertainties.
In 2020, there hasn't been another universally shared experience in my lifetime, apart from the pandemic, where every individual across the globe can relate to and understand each other. We all experienced this life-altering event, together.
For 2021, life pretty much shook me to my core. And being in the public eye, it was even more tragic because it wasn't just me that was shaken.
In 2022, this season was about stripping away the roles I've always identified with: wife, mom, sister, teacher, co-founder, friend, coworker, coach. The upheaval of 2021 forced me into a quiet corner, a space where I could dig deep, peel back the layers and heal from the hurts of my marriage. As a wife and a mother, and having walked hand in hand with so many over the years, we're often the sponges, absorbing and soaking up the discord, the untruths, indifference and the ongoing harmful behaviors until we reach a point where we just can't bear it any longer. We finally declare, I have to preserve my overall health and wellness from a destructive relationship, and "enough is truly enough". Despite wrestling and wishing for a different outcome, I had to accept that saving my marriage wasn't something I could do alone. Addiction is a storm that tears lives apart. Professionally, I have seen hundreds of clients and their spouses sitting in my office, and unfortunately, addiction wins, unless there are dire measures in place for an addict. If this is your story, I see you, and you are not alone on this journey.
For 2023, my focus as a mother of four fantastic college graduates is to dive deep into the world of relationships, enneagrams, and to find emotional and mental wellness solutions for our youth. While my love for the outdoors keeps me grounded, there's an ever-growing urge to share my story through words. I'm stepping into the unknown with faith, eager to see where this journey takes me. I remain curious and eager to discover the story God is unfolding, and hope you'll walk with me as we navigate life's beautiful complexities together.
