Vulnerability

I admire my daughter’s, and I respect their innocence, their frailty as well as their strength. I look at myself and understand that I am growing because of them.

Singleness is a curse

Winning battles

We battle things unbeknownst to us. Things that were given to us through childhood experiences. And it isn’t until we allow God to turn the mirror on our self that we become aware of such things. You go from blaming God for allowing things that were out of your control to happen. You go to feeling helpless, like why do…

What’s on the other side of the Terrain?

Have you ever felt like you were a small piece to a gigantic puzzle? And even though you feel so little, you know your part is necessary. When you look out into the abyss of the unknown, you quiver at the thought of this journey that you have no idea how to begin. Day in and day out; night after…
