My 4 R’s of Overcoming Anxiety

Riding out the wave of anxiety can be complete and utter torture.  For those coming to this post in the middle of an overwhelming episode, I'm going to get to the point.  Here's what's helped me in the past and what's helping me now.  I'm hoping that it can do the same for you: Rely on God I can't stress this enough.  The answer to anxiety...the answer to illness...the answer...

My Depths of Chronic Back Pain & Anxiety Revealed

The Chronic Back Pain It's no secret around here that I've been dealing with back pain pretty intensely for the past 1 1/2 years or so, but what I don't always express...what I haven't quite let be a part of these posts...is how hardcore it's been and how many times I have hit rock bottom.

Ever experience one of those profound, life-changing moments from simple conversation? I certainly have. It's not often that those times come around, but when they do I am always so grateful and so amazed at the same time.

Kindergarten. A letter for my Baby Girl..

My sweet Baby Girl, This letter for you is really more of a letter for us both this time. I feel desperate to write it before I forget...before the idea of you being in Kindergarten feels normal to me...before I forget how my heart jumped into my throat this morning as we approached your school and said goodbye for your first full day...our first full day apart. I don't want...
