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 happens to be a story of the grace and kindness of Jesus. I am a wife to a first responder, a mama to three incredible young men, a lover of words and their meanings, a storyteller, a truth-seeker, and a recovering worrier, to name a few things.
But most importantly, 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 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 most challenging days. I’m also a thinker; I can think something to death 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. 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 matcha lattes, DIY projects, and my family and friends. (Not necessarily in this order, of course—it depends on the day.) I’m also a big fan of sarcasm and funny people in general. When I was in my most brutal 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 I want to share with others walking this path.
It can feel a little lonely sometimes, am I right?
One of my most significant 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 know we’ll be friends!
