“Newness” (2019)

2017 was tough for me. Trials and perseverance. Losing my joy. Endless hurt and pain I caused that cycled without relief. I was lost in the wilderness from the consequences of my sin. The last bit of 2017 consisted of the final piece falling apart, so I was left without direction. 2018 was the year [...]

The importance of real healing

Are you willing to wait for the best that’s yet to come? A few months ago I posted about the “dust” in my life. Painful memories and experiences that I was almost healed from. Key word - almost. There were still attacks. But they were small, and nothing compared to how they used to be. [...]
