I had so much fun at my Facebook LIVE event last night! It really takes it to a new level being able to interact with you all in real-time. Thanks for showing up! I am so excited about what God is doing here. There have been several hundred new friends joining us the last couple weeks. WELCOME!!!

Because there are lots of you new to this space, I wanted to call your attention to my newly updated ARCHIVES page. There you’ll find links to every article I’ve ever posted since i began writing almost one year ago. Many of you have requested older articles so it should be easier to locate them now. Just head to the ARCHIVES page (there’s a tab at the top of this page that will take you there).

It’s amazing for me to go back and read from the beginning too. I can hear in my words how I felt in those moments. And I can also see how far I’ve come. There are still days that break my heart anew. But there is so much healing and joy-seeking happening lately. This is reassuring to me. There may be times when I’m thrown ten steps backwards, but the overall movement seems to be forward. I’m learning how to carry joy WITH my grief.

Thanks again to all of you. Those who have been here since the beginning, and those of you brand-new to this space. We are in this together. We are not alone.

    Sorry I missed you last night on FB Live, but was tuned in to the weather since I live in Houston! I loved your post about grief being like a bungee cord! Amazing analogy that everyone gets! I look forward to joining in next time!
