Most of the time we don’t get to write our own stories.
I know what it’s like to be abused and heartbroken. I also know what it’s like to make big mistakes.
I ran away from home when I was sixteen years old to escape abuse only to find myself surrounded by a lifestyle of drugs and insanity. For a while, I took a ride on that merry-go-round until I was so empty and broken, I cried out to God to save me, and He did.
In that moment, He reached into my darkness and showed me a love greater than I ever thought possible.
I’d like to say since then my life has been easy, but unfortunately, that wasn’t the case. This journey has been long and at times treacherous, full of pitfalls and deserts, mountaintops and deep valleys, but I’m getting there. I’m on a journey to become whole.
What I’ve learned on this journey is that no one is beyond redemption and God is able to take our biggest mistakes and turn them into something beautiful. Along the way, I’ve found a passion for storytelling. O began taking authentic parts of myself and creating characters with them to weave stories of redemption. I write these stories because I want women who have been through some hard things to know that they are not alone. To let them know if they’ve been abused, if their heart has been broken, if they’ve made big mistakes, that they are still worthy of love.
There is no place too dark for God’s love to reach.
Never miss a thing
