December 24, 2017
I began blogging in 2011. A little before that, actually, on a very outdated platform called MySpace. Little did I know that I was smack in the middle of a ten-year exodus from a lifetime spent in Evangelical Christianity and a 28-yr. long marriage. Suffice to say, a lot has changed over the last seven years.
As I have grown and developed, my blog has progressed and morphed as well. It has crossed my mind many times to delete the outdated works found in these pages and simply start fresh. Somehow I do not have the heart to do that. There is something special to me about the journey that brought me to this point in my life.
So most of what I wrote between 2011 and 2017 is still here for you to wade through. Consider it a glimpse of my path to wholeness. Perhaps the words will help you understand me better as a person. Or perhaps you may gain an appreciation for your own path with all of its twists and turns. Whatever the outcome, know this: every word I ever typed came from a desire to spur others on to personal growth. This desire has been the constant in my life. I crave knowledge with the heart of a teacher. And I have learned that all any of us have is the ‘truth’ we perceive at a given moment in time.
Abraham Hicks says it best:
You can’t get it wrong and you’re never done.
Never done learning, never done believing, never done teaching, never done growing. Every path – whether long or short – winds its way through many revelations, both big and small. Each of them is a stepping stone to unity with our inner being. Together they form the building blocks of who we will become. I hope that we can continue to press on together, to learn, believe, teach, and grow.
Happy New Year! As always, thank you for reading.
