There are people that I love right now that are sick. That have parents that are dying. That see no reconciliation in sight within their families. That have survived school shootings. Who are struggling with memories of rape and abuse. Who’s children and brothers and sisters have died. Who’s houses are burning. Who are experiencing incredible deep loneliness. Who are grieving a lost love, or hope that’s been deferred. Who are in constant chronic pain, day and night. Who are on the verge of homelessness. Or who are putting up a front to make their lives seem a little less painful. The people I love are hurting like this. I am one of those people. And I’m sure many of you are as well. - - - grief isn’t linear. It’s not measurable. It’s the one thing in our human existence that likely many of us wish that we knew nothing about. It’s a wave, that’s pushes us in and then down into the murky waters, the riptide that steals our breath and for just a moment death seems more possible and maybe, even more desirable than it ever has in all of our days of living and breathing. - - This year, I’ve been processing grief, and I’ve been surrounded by others who are grieving. We are so afraid in our pain of taking up space. Of making a mess. Of making others uncomfortable with our healing process. It’s become so easy for many to apologize for the mess, when often it’s not a mess that we even made to begin with. - - - Grief makes me angry. It makes me sick with disgust at a world filled with pain that touches the lives of so many that I love and know. It is weighty, it is heavy. It is lonely. It pushes you into the corners of the world. And we’ve all somehow been pushed into a corner somewhere. - - - I just want to say, come out. Come out of your corners. Come out of your hiding. Wear your grief. Take up space. Write on walls. Sing the songs. Cry the tears. Break down to build back up. Find your people that want to go there with you. I want to go there with you. Be a mess. Be confused. Just be. Wherever you are in your stage of grieving, just be. Not that you need it, but I give you permission to fall apart. Take up space. I want to listen. The floor is yours.





Embrace the new in your life.



I sat in this spot for most the weekend, learning how to pour some of the deepest parts of my soul on to paper. I was surrounded by some of the greatest women. We should take more moments like this to laugh and cry, to be vulnerable, to eat too many gummy worms and chocolate, and drink loads of coffee. There aren’t words to describe how anxious I am to share these pages with you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀ ⎯ I will forever be grateful for @amyanoelck for creating a space in which God could show up and helping to pull the best version of ourselves out on paper. Thank you @carolinekunkel for serving us soo well this weekend. You are such a gift! And shout out to my friend @ashleymaie for joining me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⎯ Here’s to the beautiful stories this short life creates, and here’s to sharing them with the world! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #writingthisstory #worthit #letsgo #writersretreat #writing #cozy #fireplaces #coffee #sisterhood #beauty #pain #brokenness





My daily prayer of “Lord give me opportunities & challenges to know You better & be a blessing to others” was profoundly answered. Be careful what you earnestly pray for. Just over 7 years ago I was delivered a crisis that completely challenged my faith, my identity & the very fibre of my heart. Infidelity caused a crack so loud it was audible 💔 as @lysaterkeurst puts it “I licked the floor of hell”. It’s now a part of my history & lived experience. I can assure you that indeed this “opportunity” brought me deeper in faith and closer to my Saviour who mended my heart ❤️ and is now being used as a blessing to others to offer hope that restoration in marriage, after infidelity, is possible. 🙌🙏 #thanks #gratitude #prayer #happysunday #brokenness #hope #restoration #reconciliation #joy #challenges #infidelity #opportunities #growth #faith #marriageoneness repost @alliworthington
