About

I am an ordinary woman determined to shine a light on the ordinary problems of life that are so often ignored. This blog is both a personal journal and an attempt to see if there are others like me, women (and men) who struggle with self-worth, poor decisions, and the idea that perfect is the only way.

I am also a princess in the greatest Kingdom the world has ever seen. You’ll see me say this over and over again because it’s the only way I can even begin to understand the overwhelming love and power given me and all believers. As an adopted daughter, it is my duty to be a spiritual ambassador, representing my Father to all other nations and religions. I am still a very inexperienced ambassador, so please forgive any stumbles I may have. Everyone, I am learning, makes mistakes and that is a big part of this journey.

This blog shall be my journey from being crippled by fear to strengthened by the truth. So much of fear is believing lies: lies about body image, worth, and expectations. Not all of this will be pretty. All of it, though, will be completely honest. After years of hiding my dirty laundry, I’m ready to get it out in the open. I am me and there is nothing I can do to change it. My past is the past, and I want to change my mindset so the future can be different.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey. I can’t wait to see where it will lead.

  1. Looks like you have an interesting blog here. I, too, have struggled with having to have things perfect. Being married to a Brazilian and someone that values relationships and people over work and tasks, I’ve learned a lot. Also, having young kids helps. I’m slowly learning that everything is not black and white, but there are shades of grey and that my happiness does not reside in if everything is perfect (according to my standards).
    Blessings and nice to ‘virtually’ meet you.

    • Thanks! It’s awesome meeting someone else who has similar feelings. 🙂 And I completely agree. It seems like us perfectionists gravitate towards relational people. My husband is the same way, valuing relationships above all else. Thanks for reading!
