When miscarriage leaves you childless

           When I was 18, I thought I was pregnant.  The thought of being a mother was thrilling.  The child would be mine and DJ’s(partner) to love for the rest of our lives.  Dreams of having a family.              I remember the excitement and happiness I felt.  We were afraid but planning our lives together.Continue reading “When miscarriage leaves you childless”

My feelings and my prayer

                Lately, I feel like I’m hanging on by a thread.  Trying to hold unto God.  Feeling like things don’t add up and I’m waiting for an answer.  Like I’m fearful that I have fallen out of God’s hands.  Anxious, worried, and waiting for the Lord.                  Thoughts of feeling worthless.  Sad, confused, and unfocused. Continue reading “My feelings and my prayer”

The Story of Bella (My service dog)

Some people will never understand the bond between a man and their dog. I never did.

Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?

I know I am.  Sometimes I can’t even see it. Subconsciously I realized I was beating myself up.  Most of us are harder on ourselves than we are towards anyone else. We have compassion for others but not ourselves.  Sound familiar? I want to explore this with you from a Christian point of view. CanContinue reading “Are You Your Own Worst Enemy?”
