Unashamed: How My Struggle With Bulimia Led Me To God

This is my testimony.

That word – testimony –  is kind of intimidating to me. It holds weight. It holds importance. When you hear someone say it, you want to stop and listen to what they are saying. To me, this is just my story, but in a sense, it is all of those things too. It holds weight and importance… at least I hope it does.  Continue Reading

5 Lessons From 5 Years of Marriage

Last month marked 5 years of marriage for my husband and I.  I only know the marriage that I am in, but I think I am so incredibly blessed to have found such an amazing partner to go through this life with.  Life doesn’t always almost never goes as you planned, so you have to be willing to adjust and adapt.
