"She ruined her life, what a shame, she used to be so sweet."

when you’ve grown up in the bible belt for so long and there are hyper conservative Christians giving you more rules than they do love and
you’ve found yourself trapped behind the back of the belt buckle that is…

Nowhere in history was anything great achieved with certainty and assuredness– everything is, and always has been, a beautiful manifestation of the unfolding that is life. To see a miracle, you need to keep going even when you’re convinced you’ll see defeat: that’s what will make it miraculous.

This breaks my heart because it brought back my own memories. You remember what they said, what they look like, how they acted. It shakes you to your core because no matter what it doesn’t ever leave.

It messed me up for a while. I went to drugs and alcohol. I tried to be with different guys to make it “okay" and "normal" but that wasn’t okay or normal. 

I went to counseling to help get back on a path of healthy living. It took months for me to even hear “trust me" without vomiting. 

This summer I am getting married, 2 and a half years after the attack. 

Girls never let ANYONE tell you it is your fault, or you were asking for it. For me, it was fighting what a female police officer said to me. 

I love you and feel free to message me if this is something you are fighting through. The after-math. I’m here for whatever you need, even if it is for someone to read your story and understand without judgment

Life is full of things that demand our attention. Sometimes we need to let go of some of these things in order to move forward. What do you need to give up?

Best spoken word I’ve ever seen. Ever. 

I’m not really that into Spoken Word videos, but this is just amazing.

Wow.

This is something I have truly learned to grasp upon my engagement. I have let all the previous thoughts I had of the wedding, but instead am more focused on the marriage I will have with the man of my life.

If you stop fearing the Lord, you will stop fearing SIN. And when that happens, everything you deem unthinkable suddenly becomes tolerable, passable, admirable, moral, legal, and even applaudable. Dear Lord Jesus, help me to uproot such seeds of sin growing in my life and allow me to draw down daily grace so that I may glorify You with every fiber of my being. Take control of my soul, my mind, my emotions and my will. I long to follow You by all that I am even though it’s obvious I need more grace than I thought.

I love TMFS

It’s weird that the man I am writing to is someone I know. In 66 days I will be going to sleep with MS (My Spouse)

I’m super excited.

If you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you - you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing was ever going to happen again.
