Meli's Story, "This Little Light of Mine"

Image
I am so honored to be able to share my friend, Meli's story. Meli and I are in each other's lives for a reason and it's because we get to grow together and encourage one another to keep going. God planted a seed for our friendship, and it has grown over this last year and a half.
"Meli, I am so happy to be a part of your life and to call you my friend and sister through Christ. We have been not only watching each other grow but holding each others hands through our ever challenging healing process. I look forward to seeing where we both are a year from now and how we will grow us as individuals and as friends. Thank you for being a light in my life and allowing me to be a part of your healing process. Thank you for sharing your story especially in this month to give hope and show survivors that there is a light at the end of that dark maze we sometimes call life. I love you my dear friend! "

I have been writing this blog now for almost a year and a half and each time I write it's healing for my heart.  I look back at where I was when I first posted my story for all of the world to read.  I remember the butterflies in my stomach, the fear that was overwhelming my soul, the negative thoughts coursing through my mind.  Then when I clicked that button and published my story for the first time I remember the healing tears running down my cheeks, the peace that washed over me, and the sense of freedom that I longed for so many years was finally happening.  I knew what God had planned for me, he began restoring my soul and showing me the new life he planned for me.  I trusted in Him and so I followed His lead because I knew that He would be there walking beside me every step of the way. I went through a rollercoaster of emotions as soon as my story was o…

"Rescued from the Darkness Through God's Love", Jaime's Story

Image
It's April and an important month to me to spread awareness for Sexual Assault Survivors.  In honor of this month I have spread the word for survivors to send me their stories to share with all my readers and followers.  I am excited and honored to share the first survivor story with all of you this month.  My beautiful friend Jaime, she is a strong and courageous woman who has lived a life filled with chaos and trauma until the day God stepped into her life and forever transformed and healed her wounded heart.  Her story is amazing and I hope that God uses this story for all of you survivors living in darkness to find God's love and let him rescue you.
     Chaos was pretty normal growing up in my house. By the time I was five years old my parents divorced and I was left with two families that did not like each other and had a very hard time getting along.
