My Own Journey

If you’re interested in my own story, these three posts below will walk you through the timeline of a season when I went from summer to winter to deep winter to finally trusting spring again.

I’ve since gone back and updated slightly just so they make sense to anyone who stumbles on them now.

Encouragement for anyone who has endured a long winter of the soul and is tempted to believe hope is the enemy.

I fell and couldn’t get up.

If you read any of those last three posts, you have an idea.
As I began to come out of the darkness,
I saw connections between what happened with my accident
and what happens when believers suffer from a brokenness that keeps them down.

This short eBook was born from that experience.

Inspirational quotes for Christians. Your fall doesn’t get the final word on your life. He will replace the weakness with strength. You will be stronger in the broken places.

Yes! I could use some encouragement
