Comfort vs. Character

I started writing this blog a month ago with the intention of sharing it but life happened.  I like to start writing and then come back to it to make sure it is good enough to share, that it has some meaning, and makes sense but that process is usually a few days…not weeks. Perhaps …

Support.

I write this not to get pity or to cause strife, but with the hope that if you find someone in my position, you will be able to better serve them.

Beauty in brokenness.

Sometimes we need to crack to let in the light, but He will be glorified for He uses our brokenness to create something more beautiful than we could ever imagine.

Growth.

I would like to share with you something I wrote three years ago: I have many fears in life.  Fear of rejection, being hurt, being inadequate, uncertainty, losing control, and getting hurt.

Courage.

What does courage look like to you? For some it is just getting out of bed in the morning, for others, it might be making that phone call.  Perhaps it is standing up for something you believe in, or trying hard to not let go. There are many definitions of courage: mental or moral strength …
