You’re not alone.
These three words set me free the moment I embraced them into my life. From that moment on, I resolved to help others understand and realize that they aren’t alone – ever.
Other Christians, like myself, have dealt with deep heartache in life – and the societal taboo is that we aren’t supposed to experience pain. The deceptiveness of this lie is beyond horrendous for the heart of the Christian believer, and it’s my heart to encourage each and every Christian that come by this blog to understand that brokenness isn’t a weakness, it’s an opportunity (for Christ to do His best, through our worst).
You’ll hear about some of my own struggles, as well as those of others I have guest post here. This is in effort to offer you the most relevant examples of brokenness, seeking to encourage you that whatever areas of pain you’re experiencing in your own lives, that Christ truly does heal the pain of the brokenhearted – filling the gaps of our broken lives – up to 3 days a week.
Focuses will include, but aren’t exclusive to:
- Inspiration from entertainment (movies, music, books, art, news, magazines & blogs)
I also review books that I find relevant to the focus & mission of this blog, and from time to time you will see a review crop up revealing my thoughts on books that review for publishers and authors.
Up to 2 times a week, you will find me writing at Provoketive Magazine about topics focused Life, Faith and Culture – primarily in how our walk with Christ is reflected in life and in our culture (and also how life and our culture affects our walk with Christ).
So you all get a chance to know me a little bit more, here is a little run down of some just basic information about me:
I’m a happily married woman to a wonderful man of 12+ years, stay-at-home mom to one son whom I homeschool, an Undergrad Student of Religion at Liberty University Online, and a Writer, Blogger & Aspiring Author living in the Charlotte, NC area. My background is in EMS/Firefighting, as well as retail and childcare.
My main areas of brokenness that I’ve struggled with have been depression, co-dependency and anger – and I’m still tempted to this day by these hang-ups; but in Christ, I press on. I’ve not been a Christian all my life, as I was born and raised Jewish and turned to Paganism for 6 years before my salvation in late 2003 – yet, it took me about 5 years into my walk with Christ to discover a true relationship with Him.
If you have questions, or would just like to give some feedback – you’re more than welcome to contact me - and I will respond to you as soon as possible.
