So I watched this pretty cool semi documentary that was posted to Facebook, about how women view themselves. To no surprise, all the women interviewed had pretty much the same answer. In a nut shell, they all disliked their bodies and saw themselves as “ugly”. How sad. I was there for many years. I was like those women for a very long part of my life and I’ll be honest, if I’m not connected to […]

I hope you all have found a snazzy purple something to wear ;) I’ve been reflecting on my amazing journey over the years and I am brought to tears at the incredible life God has created for me. Out of such a disastrous mess He […]

  I got this photo from Facebook. It will be the second year that I will participate in this event. As many of you know, I am a thriving Survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I have willingly done a lot of work to overcome the effects this abuse has had on my life. It has been one heck of a journey. One journey that I would not trade for anything. I have, and am becoming […]

Hey there friends. Hope you’re doing great :) I was sitting chatting with my girls and they have graciously reminded me of some amazing things. I’ve shared this video before and I’m sharing it again. It has really spoken to me again and reminded me of how beautiful God has made me to be. What my abusers stole from me and the repercussion it has had on my life and my relationships was, is, no […]

I started a group a few weeks ago. This group is a parents support group. My husband and I have ended up in this group for two reasons. One- one of our children, just like me, suffer from an eating disorder. And two- Gods plan to “poke” at me in regards to this issue. You see friends, I’ve struggled with an eating disorder for about twenty years now. As I have been on my journey […]

I’ve settled in to do my school work and a topic I’m covering now is women who have been sexually abused as a child and later on in life have addition issues. Earlier this morning as I was tidying up, I came across a workbook of mine with of all my notes, journals and answered questions from the work I have done on my past childhood sexual abuse.  This work I was reading was from […]

Good beautiful morning!!  It is so sunny and cold where I am today! Our anniversary  yesterday as so wonderful! It was the best anniversary I have ever spent with Rob. I suspect a lot of it has to do with my thoughts and attitudes towards him and our relationship. I took some time last night while Rob made us a delicious dinner, to help my son Alex organize a few things in his bedroom. I just need to […]

I wanted to share this morning about sexual abuse awareness. When a topic such as this is brought up, many times people will change the subject or avoid it at all costs. Some will say, “it has nothing to do with me” and leave it for the next person. As I shared before, I am a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. A survivor. Not a victim anymore. I was sexually abused between the ages of […]
