My story involves surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse by more than one perpetrator, having a couple of life changing car accidents in my early 20’s, my husband almost being wiped out the same year, giving birth to two children on the Autism Spectrum and with other issues, and living with PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, Severe Pain, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I know what it is like to be suicidal. I know what it is like to struggle to stay in relationship with God and being on the edge of throwing it all away. But praise God, He’s not finished with me yet.
Some of us may struggle with one issue, some of us may struggle with multiple issues, we feel like we’ve been side swiped from every direction and wonder what on earth it is that we aren’t learning.

The struggles that we face and deal with on a day to day basis, are the experiences that we can reach through and encourage each other with, giving each other hope to take another breath, another step. It’s time that we stand up and get real with each other. It’s time to realise we are not alone!
Stories have been told from the beginning of time and stories will continue to be told till the end of time. Every life has a story and these stories inspire and encourage others on life's' journey. It is not how we start the journey that counts, but how we finish it.
