Decades

The last few years have shown me you don’t have to be out of the crushing, exhausting wait to be deeply planted in truest kind of joy. Joy stays long after you receive what you long for.

And that’s the best part.

God interweaves miracles into our decades no matter how painful they turn out to be. Life with Him is life itself.

Sometimes You Feel Like Winter When Everything Else Blooms

I am passionate about helping people relate to their pain in a way that heals. This means framing the sharp edges of heartache with beauty and light. It is important to be brutally honest both about pain and about hope. The more I write, the more I understand that we all want to see our pain on paper, because we all want to be seen. But we also want to see it gently and we want to be reminded of hope, joy, and healing. So, I’ve written a small poetry collection (which I’ll add to over time) all about spring.

Here’s the truth: I love springtime, but sometimes spring comes before your heart is ready for it. Sometimes you stare at the pretty buttercups, but feel so worn out. It’s so beautiful outside, but the inside of you just aches. Sometimes, you feel like winter when everything else blooms. Sometimes, you can’t stand life but it’s standing tall everywhere around you. So, these poems are for you whenever you find yourself in the sometimes.
