Welcome, thank you for stopping by! Just a little about me:
I’m Susan! *Hand waving hello wildly*– Sorry… I’m just super excited you’re here!
We all have a story to share. Mine just happens to be a story of the grace and kindness of Jesus. I am a wife to a first responder, a mama to three wonderful boys (*young-men), an ice-cream addict, a lover of words and their meanings, a storyteller, a truth-seeker, and a recovering worrier, to name a few things…
But most importantly, and where I’m learning to stake my identity is in this;
I’m a follower and believer in Jesus Christ.
Knowing and living my life by this truth has literally changed EVERYTHING.
If you stick around you’ll hear me talk a lot about Jesus, faith, anxiety, depression, and motherhood. I wrestle with fear, faith, and doubt and believe our paths to healing are never linear.
I love writing and words in general. Words have helped me through some of my hardest days. I’m also a thinker, I can think something to death just to revive it and think it to death again. So, writing helps me get all of those thoughts out.
I’ve been a secret writer for years. I’ve only just recently found the courage to put my words out for the world to read. This blog grew out of a desire to share my journey in this crazy, beautiful—and let’s be honest, scary—life. I want to inspire others to seek Jesus in their daily battles and see that He’s so much more than a distant God.
I love the outdoors, flowers, hiking, warm blankets and hot coffee, DIY projects, and my family and friends. (Not necessarily in this order of course—depends on the day.) I’m also a big fan of sarcasm and funny people in general. When I was in my hardest days of anxiety and depression, if I could laugh for even a minute, it helped.
I’ve struggled with anxiety ever since I was a little girl and I went through postpartum depression with all three of my pregnancies. I’ve learned a few things along the way that I want to share with others who are also walking this path.
It can feel a little lonely sometimes, am I right?
One of my greatest goals is to share the impact Jesus has had on my struggle with anxiety and to extend to others the comfort and peace I have received through Him.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction so that we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” 2 Cor. 1:3-4
Stay awhile, I just know we’ll be friends!
