a little about me
I reside in Fort Worth, TX with my sweet husband and two cats. I’m a 3rd year special education teacher and I have a deep passion for helping children with disabilities and have been in the field for 7 years. I’m also a writer, believer in Jesus Christ, jog-aholic, wellness enthusiast (visit my group here), rare disease patient, and I believe in the power of being kind. I’m a type A personality and I always find a clean and tidy home bliss. I love doing life with family and close friends and I think laughter is the best medicine.
my purpose in the blog
Launched in 2012, I have created this site to be a safe place for you to come and be encouraged. A place to give you inspiration on living a healthy life in faith, mind, body and spirit. I know deep pain in both the physical and emotional sense, and I’m here to say that neither has to keep us in a stronghold for life. The stories that you will find here are centered around chronic pain, mental health, teaching, and faith.
obstacles in my life
I was diagnosed with Devics disease (a rare disease) in 2019 which can cause me to become blind and or paralyzed. It caused me to become half-blind in 2019 and has definitely been my most difficult struggle in life thus far. In 2013, I also battled with Lupus for several years, which led to a battle in mental health that I am very transparent about in this blog as well.
