“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.”
I am so glad you are here…
It is my sole desire for you to be encouraged and find hope and authenticity every single time you visit my blog.
You belong here if…
- You have felt alone in your journey
- You have believed you are not enough
- You have (or someone else has) diminished your value or worth
- You have lost touch with your soul voice
- You desire to embody your True-self
- You desire inner freedom and joy
On my blog, I write about the things that uncover the soul to experience God in deeper, more honest ways. I touch on various topics like staying connected to our God-given identity, healing as a bit-by-bit process, how to practice self-compassion and love, and learning to live from a place of freedom and wholeness. I believe we are not alone in struggling with shame (or the “Soul Bullies” as my friend calls them) and needing to be reminded of who we are in Christ.
You can read a sample of my journey in finding my Soul voice here. You can also read a sample of how I’ve experienced healing as a bit by bit process here. If you’d like to read about a practical way I ground myself in my God-given identity through my role as a mom, you can read that here.
At my core, I am a heart-writer. I know no other way of writing than with authenticity and vulnerability. I started my blog in 2014 after experiencing a personal come-apart of sorts. At the time, I had three small children and found myself to be profoundly not ok – at the soul level. As I took a deeper look, I found I was making myself small in almost every area of my life. Through God’s grace, He took me on an inward journey toward healing – healing my past, my identity, my insecurities and my shame. This blog began as a place to process what I was learning and share the hope I was finding along the way. It is my continued hope for it to be a place to share my discoveries, my heart, and my passion for anyone walking towards wholeness.
I am a native Oregon girl who was transplanted to San Diego, California with my husband Jeremy, and our four kids: Harper, Bentley, Kensington and London. I am a student to those wiser than I and I love making heart connections with people. I am a complex mix of girly-tomboy, athletic-writer and social-introvert. I love running next to the ocean, a good charcuterie board and an old fashion, breath-taking sunsets, my first cup of coffee in the morning, high-heels and dance music.
“He reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me.”
