My story is one of heartbreak. No, literally. I've had my heart broken and gone through more break-ups than I care to specifically number for you (okay, fine...four). But God met me after every one of those break-ups and taught me more about who He is and how He loves me than I ever could have imagined. I used to cringe thinking: "Wow, that's really my story. Relationship after relationship ending in heartbreak and hurt." You can imagine how easy it was to wonder: "What the heck is wrong with me?"  But I'm thankful for those experiences now, because God has given me a story to share: one of hope, healing, renewal and restoration. I love that I get to use what I have been through to share the beautiful, redeeming message of the Gospel.

Maybe you haven't been through a break-up, but you're getting ready to jet off to college and start a new life. Perhaps you're working a dead-end job without any joy, and wondering when you'll see the light at the end of the corporate tunnel. Or maybe your heart has been ravaged by heartbreak, and you're trying to cope and process through these tender moments. No matter your situation, I'm convinced we all need a little help when it comes to figuring out how to make this "life" thing work. 

My vision & prayer for this blog is that you would be encouraged, admonished, and empowered to live your life with Jesus on the throne of your heart, regardless of the season you're in. Heartbroken or not, fully living for God isn't always easy. But I guarantee it is the most rewarding, refreshing, fulfilling life you could ever intend to lead. All He asks is that you reach out and take His hand, as He lovingly reaches for yours.
