This year I find myself longing for something more than choosing a word or making a list of goals. I am longing for a deeper relationship with God.
It’s a beautiful time of year but when you have a chronic illness it is often a very difficult time. It’s even more difficult when you’re greatly affected by the lack of sunshine and cold winter weather. These environmental changes often increase symptoms like sluggishness, fatigue, and pain. Thankfully, with the Christmas season being right […]
Do you have a loved one with a chronic illness? Those of us who suffer from any sort of chronic pain usually have a different perspective on what we would like to receive as gifts. Our wants often turn into needs for comfort and relief from pain.

It’s easy to expect the people in our lives to come alongside us and help us out. But […]
If you’ve ever been in the hospital for any length of time, you know there are certain things you need. In March I spent over a week in the hospital when my colon ruptured. I had never been in the hospital for this length of time. Because this was completely unexpected I didn’t have any […]
I’m sure you, like me, have gone through seasons where everything seems to go wrong. Literally, one thing after another happens! Those seasons can either break us or build us.
