Have you ever had one of those moments when you fall to pieces? Motherhood seemed so picturesque until you can’t fit into your favorite pair of jeans, your child’s doctor gives you an unexpected diagnosis and marriage isn’t all candle light? Same here.
My so called life fell to pieces and it was a mess.
But here’s the question, is falling to pieces so bad? Falling apart may be just the best thing to happen to me or anyone. It allows us to become still, to look up as life carries us through heavy rapids. We can truly look at our lives in holy fragments as God plucks us out of the water as he revives while choosing the pieces to glue back together–making us more like him.
The picture will look different, imperfect, perfectly flawed but free to be who we are.
I’m not perfect and struggle with accepting grace for my past and the present. Leaving a life of hurt, anger, self-destruction and moving into a life centered in the palm of God’s hands is an incredible journey and I’d love to share it with you. (click here for that eye-opening moment).
A little about me: I’m a mom to three kids, one with ADHD, another with Aspergers and was a teen mom. I’m married to my high school sweetheart. By day, I’m a mama, laundry washer, writer and by night I work in production at a News Station. I’m also the author of Mama Needs a Time Out and am agented through Books & Such which my amazing agent is busy shopping two other projects while I work on a third.
You can find me most of the time speaking to moms all across Nebraska, drinking coffee or on Facebook. But I hope to find you on here!
