About Me

About me…Hmm, well, I’m just a girl trying to figure things out–God, life, myself, others, love, heartache…I am a Christian who is grateful for the love and mercy of Jesus Christ because I need it. I am recently divorced from an abusive marriage, have struggled with an eating disorder–to one degree or another–for a decade, and am no where near to being the woman I want to be (but I like to think I’m on the way!).

Though it makes me feel like a huge hypocrite since I have so much to still figure out for myself, I am going back to school to get my Masters in Counseling because I have a passion for helping and encouraging others who struggle with the same self-esteem, food, and body image issues that I’ve struggled with for so long.

In the meantime, as God works on me, I–a well-known perfectionist–am learning to appreciate life even with all its disappointments, frustrations, and yes, even the pain. Because there is a lot of beauty, love, and goodness too and that’s what I run after every day.
