My life changed drastically at 19 years old when I woke up sick one day and never got better. Four and a half years later I was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme disease, Babesia, and Bartonella. These infections have reshaped my life more than I ever thought possible influencing everything from my social life, education, working ability, and even where I live. There have been a lot of tough times and I’ve lost a lot to this monster of a disease but it has also given me a lot. Had I not become ill, I probably never would have learned how much I enjoy writing, let alone start a blog!

Currently my life is a pretty simple one revolving around my mission to remission. I have an amazing family and some incredibly caring friends who provide support through every step. I am an aunt, a daughter, a sister, grandchild, niece, and friend. I am also a mama to my sweet pup, Sophie, and spunky cat, Glitter.

I believe that a wonderful, powerful God is my creator and he makes broken things beautiful. I know that this struggle is not in vain and there will be amazing things come from it, which is why I began sharing my story. My writing journey began with several published articles on The Mighty and has continued on to become my most effective way of expressing the thoughts I have on all kinds of topics. My hope for this blog is that it can touch someone’s life in a positive way and provide an opportunity to share God’s great love.
