“If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.”
Anyone who knows me well, knows that writing and journaling have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. Usually my writing stayed in my journals. I have used my own pieces and re-read them; usually the regurgitated stories of my life and how God has moved gives me comfort, validation and encouragement. In 2019 I felt a strong pull to start stepping out in faith and boldness in the form of writing, not just for myself, but for others. I believe that we all have a story to tell, and even though I know I will not influence everyone there is an audience out there who I will.
My past as a Licensed Professional Counselor, and 10 years of work in the Mental Health field, has also given me insight into a lot of other peoples lives. What are they missing? Being heard, validated and a lack of hope. And not just a temporary, surface hope, but a hope that heals deep down in the soul; driving purpose, passion and love… the hope that I have found in Jesus Christ. A transformational life in the present, this side of heaven, with the promise of eternal life in the future.
My hope is to use this platform to be a teller of my story and encourage you as a spouse, a parent, as a human being, or in your walk with God. Thank you for reading, and a special thanks to all my friends & family, who have encouraged me on this journey.
