What Is A Trigger And Why Is Everyone Talking About It?

A trigger is a trauma response. It happens when a current experience “triggers” your brain to remember a trauma from the past and then your body responds the same way it did when the original trauma occurred. If you have experienced this then you know how much it sucks!! I personally did not understand triggers (and how much I was experiencing them in my everyday life!) until my counselor was explaining it to me as I was telling her my […]

This is a psalm of redemption. When David began writing he was afflicted in his soul but he ends the psalm with words of redeeming hope. David’s Heart Cry David begins with a heart cry from his soul requesting an answer to his prayer. […]

Most of you know my story so I don’t want to repeat myself too much. But for a quick recap, at 26 years old I was very single (as in never married and no kids) and I humbly asked Jesus to pick out my husband.

My Story: How I Went From Desperation To Victory

Some Would Say I Am A Miracle My goal in life is to stop the stigma of sexual abuse by telling my story. As a sexual abuse survivor I have learned that the abuse was not my fault.

The shame belongs […]

How Your Thinking Relates To Your Emotional Health

Have you ever been asked to think about what you are thinking about? Weird right! The first time I was asked this question I did a double take. Why would I need to think about my own thoughts? Later I learned that we have both subconscious thoughts and conscious thoughts. And, all of our thoughts are directly related to our emotions. Our emotions are highly governed by our thoughts. That’s just a fancy way of saying our thoughts are in […]
