I have wanted to create a permanent space for a long time to share many of the things that I have learned over the years as I have faced and overcome my personal challenges. The Lord has given me a great desire to share my story with others. I hope this can give you hope that things can get better. That you can get stronger. That you can work through and overcome the things that you are facing. I hope that you find ideas on how you can deal with your particular situation by starting somewhere and doing something. By doing the small and simple things - consistently - that will add up to make a big difference in your life. 

It's just like riding a bike! The more you do it, the more it becomes second nature. I pray that you find yourself progressing and moving forward on your own road to hope, healing and peace.

My Story

It is hard to know where to begin, but the important thing is to just simply begin.

I have dealt with many challenges in my life from mental health to infertility to losing my ability to walk and many in-between. My story isn't special but it is important to know that we all have something that we are battling and that we can get help from God and work with those around us for a better life for us all.

After battling various health challenges my entire life, I was finally officially diagnosed with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS), Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS), Sjogren's Syndrome. (As well as with other probable diagnoses.) My children suffer from Eosinophilic Esophagitis, food allergies, and asthma.

My goal is to bring together resources and share our story so that others can find strength in their challenges.

I recorded the video below a few years ago to share how I went from being bedridden with Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) to participating in a 63 mile bike race. That experience redefined my medical condition and my life.

I could not have progressed without the help of God and loved ones. I hope that if you are suffering from this or other conditions, that you can find hope for your future and all that lies ahead. Things can and do get better if you hold on and keep trying.
