Welcome, I'm so glad you're here! My son says I scream-talk, as in I'm always talking at a scream level with a slight northern, southern twang. Confused? Ya, my accent is too. I am a Child of the King, wife to my Beloved (James,) momma to two kiddos, Certified FASTer Way to Fat Loss Health Coach, Professional hair and makeup artist and Over-sharer. I swear God gave me a daughter to ensure that I always look my best (or at least what she thinks is my best, because let me tell you, my 7 year old will tell me when I'm looking haggard.) She has no filter, but some would say she's a chip off the ol' block. I live for sharing who I am, what I've been through and what continues to be a struggle. My 100 pound weight loss is a topic I cover repeatedly, because unlike other addictions, we still have to put food in our mouth daily. #thestruggleisreal
I have walked through (what I consider) the pit of hell, and found myself dragged out by the Hand of God. Childhood abuse, a first marriage scattered with more abuse, miscarriages and finally a divorce that I didn't think I would recover from, all led me to this place. Writing. And in it, I don't hold back, won't keep my mouth shut or try to hide the ugliness in life but I will offer the one thing that everyone needs...hope. Pure Hope that life can be anything but what it is today. There is hope in the darkness, light at the end of dead-end tunnel and beauty in picking yourself up as you lay in a pile of ashes. True beauty comes from the Inside Out, and there is freedom found in sharing that brokenness with others. So here's to you! I'm raising my Truly to you for joining me on this journey. Your thoughts are always welcomed! Peace and Blessings.
