Open With Your Broken

Faith, Grace, Spiritual Growth

Releasing Summer 2018!!! “There was an emptiness that sourced the depths of my broken. It had started long before I could control the breaking, years before I knew I was being broken. Yes, I knew right from wrong, was raised to do better, but I was a young girl trying to fill a void, trying […]

Shouts of You

Faith, Spiritual Growth

It’s coming up on a year.  How the time flies.  You were just here.  I can still feel you by my side.  When I look at pictures, I can feel your presence.  The way you move.  The familiar way you move your hands.  The stupid way you run.  The way your face moves from each […]

happily ever… After?


Spiritual Growth

Purdue makes it easy.  Easy to keep going.  To move on.  To not think about it.  She was never here.  Visited twice in my 2.5 years here.  She wasn’t a part of my life.  Other than the random phone calls about getting my clothes from her or trying to get her here.  I made these […]

The Unseen Path


Faith, Spiritual Growth

Another thought that keeps coming to my head is the fact that God could see this in my future.  I can imagine Him hurting for me, and the rest of my family.  What we would have to suffer when it finally came time.  Him hoping that at some point the future would change.  That Ryane would […]
