I am who I am!!
A child of God, a follower of Jesus Christ, a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and I battle depression.
I love life, adore my family, and am so grateful for God for everything in my life including my most devastating experiences with depression and for the healing and joy that is possible in spite of it!
Because of that joy I can’t help but talk about it. I want to tell my story and encourage others to share their stories so that we may all benefit together as we travel on our healing journey.
I believe we are all on some journey towards wholeness in our bodies, souls and minds.
The difference between being WHOLE and having a HOLE in our souls and heart is simply a W. And the W is for Worship. The question is,
What story do you worship?
