The Race Set Before Us

Pain can have a purpose. Wounds can create wisdom. And scars can be stars.

Welcome to my blog! If you're imperfect, you're in the right place. If you feel alone, you're also in the right place. God never promised that life would be easy. He did promise to hold us up. He did say He wouldn't leave us. I am here to journal my story and each step that I take. I am hoping not just to learn but to offer hope, as I see how God plans to use my pain for purpose.
