I know what it is like to believe that I didn't have a story to tell, or rather I had a story I didn't want to tell. I know what it feels like to want to stay hidden, held back by shame and guilt. To feel of no value. To become a Mom, and wonder if generational chains could break, and every moment I 'messed up' fear that I was only strengthening their grip.
Have you ever believed these lies?
The hardest thing you will ever do is see yourself for who you really are, and invite others in. And guess what? For me that included asking God into those clutter filled, messy rooms of my heart I locked him and many others out of. What I have learned is that healing hurts, but it is also in the struggle that I have met a good good Father who loves me, and meets me every step of the way. And as I surrender, I come alive...and this new filling that overflows is so much more beautiful, than the junk I let fill my heart before. This doesn't just transform you, but your home, and relationships too.
Slowly God has shown me that my identity was resting in childhood and years of piled high lies about who I thought I was, and how God saw me. Add to that sexual abuse, and trauma, and I truly believed I was used up trash unworthy to love.
This is why I love walking with Moms like you; as you untangle yourself from lies, and dwell in truth. I long to encourage moms especially and remind them what we cannot control, and what we can control. Not because I do it all well, but because these have been especially hard for me, but also have taught me the most as I surrendered every hidden piece and in God's goodness he reveals one more rotten root.
Your lies will not go any further with me, and as you enter into truth I want to look around and admire the beauty of your story, and healing.
You can walk in purpose, right where you are.
I love getting to know individuals, and seeing how God has crafted each one of them for a unique purpose. This fuels my love of teaching, and writing legacy stories so that others can rest in their identity in Christ and say yes to their story. I'll encourage you to abide in Jesus and his Word so you may be filled to overflow, with love, beauty, grace, and truth to pass onto the next generations.
On a family note:
My husband and I have been married for 9 years. We have two children, and eagerly await for the blessing of more. My heart longs for more, but we have been unable to conceive for over 2 years now, a trial I never anticipated walking through. We are passionate about homeschooling, finances, marriage, traveling, giving, and any part of our lives we discover is not surrendered to God and his word. God renewed our marriage, on the brink of divorce, 8 years ago. This is just the first of many areas I have watched God renew what was broken. To him be all the glory!
