Pain is universal and inescapable. For most of life, I have found the world's and the church's reaction to pain bewildering. Both come up short too often, bereft of the whole truth. We are often met with every well-meaning message but "face it," because we aren't really sure how to, or if we can.
I'll always remember the day God asked me to bravely face my pain with Him until it becomes a pearl. Feeling empty of all brave, I wasn't sure I wanted to. It felt too much to ask. That has changed. I am finding Him to be tender, oh so patient, kind, and good.
Jesus wants you to know there's a treasure to uncover in the process, and the treasure is you. The hope of this website is to help us experience healing and wholeness together, letting Him turn our pain into pearls of strength and beauty. More on that later.

Hope was "my word" for 2020. Yeah, I know, it's laughable at first. But I have learned hope is born in the dark of night. For if the sun never set, we'd have no need to long for the sunrise. It's a must read!
A few perks to being an email subscriber:
Follow me on Instagram for #fridayfun! These posts will invite us to creatively practice fun, rest, and adventure. Focusing solely on healing our pain all the time will drain us of living. We also need play and rest and even work to thrive! I'm still learning to do this well.
In addition, there are unique videos of #bedtimeprayers on Sunday nights + I'll take you behind the scenes of life, and just be reel (see what I did there? If you haven't seen reels yet, come on over).
Let's do this together!
