Jesus Christ chose to take upon him all of our pain. He did it willingly because he wanted to know exactly what we were going through. I know that with that empathy He is much more equipped to kneel at God’s feet and plead for the forgiveness we need. He has felt each pain and therefore knows of our suffering when our actions fail us.
The scars of my pains will forever be a reminder of the suffering He did for me. As I take upon me His name, my suffering will always bring me closer to the eternal being He is creating me to be.

A few years ago, long before I started this blog, I had a dream. I was standing on the edge of a cliff with a book in my hand. I threw it over the edge of the cliff and into the ocean.
I didn't know then, but have been blessed to learn that my journey of healing was going to be filled with the opportunity to create that book for myself. A symbolic tangible work of art that symbolizes all of the pain that my family went through, and the peace we have come to find.
I finally received the first copy of my book and can't wait to one day drive it to the cliff in my dream. I am humbled to continue this journey of healing and appreciate all of the love and support I have received.
For anyone who wants a copy of our stories on the blog in paper back or ebook form, here is a link to the book options.
