The Fight

'Wait, what?' It's the question I get asked the most when explaining how my ex husband walked out on me and our kids on our 5 year wedding anniversary nearly 4 years ago. 'But, you're like, happy...?' Darn right, I am. This is when they start to just glaze over. You can tell they want …

Here

I made it. Finally, I made it.  I can hardly catch my breath.  I never actually expected to make it here.  There was something always getting in my way. Mostly that was me, but I made it. I must have passed by this place a thousand times. Mostly in my head, passing the time until …

Date Night

And you want to know something?  It was perfect.  Perfect because I didn't have to worry about what I was going to wear.  Perfect because I could just be without worrying about trying to make an impression.

Happy

People must think I'm crazy.  I get that a lot. They take one look at me and they just don't understand.  I have been through so much. I have been through hell and back. I have been in constant battle with the enemy. I have a target on my back and I know it.  I …

Restoration

I've asked myself the same question for years, now.  Because I remember how it felt every time I prayed for it. Because I believed that He could do it. And for a long time, I believed that He would.  So imagine my surprise when I came home from a 3+ week vacation to celebrate our …
