This is my second blog post for Life by Grace {and my first blog that I’ve ever published without my editor reviewing it} I will do my best to stay on track and not have too many shiny squirrel moments.

I’ve had this domain name for over a year now.  For more than a year I had been mulling over the best way to share my story and my life experiences; a book, a blog, speaking, do nothing.  I knew I couldn’t do nothing so I’ve finally decided a blog would be a great start.  From this my hope is to share my story of victory, the real uncut {not FB fake} version, my struggles, my path back to God after being away for 20 years {let’s be real I never understood God and his Grace as I do now}, the victories I experience now, and just life. 


Cliff note version of me; grew up on a farm, have two loving (in their unique way) dysfunctional parents who – thankfully – divorced when I was 12, my dad went to jail, and we lived in a domestic violence shelter.  Was strongly encouraged to attend church growing up, one of those you will do X while living under my roof.  Left my home state as soon as I could – did a 14-year self-seeking, enjoying life, have to stay a plane ride away from my parents – journey on the east coast.  Found myself back in my home state and then in the great state of TX!!  Texas is where I found myself; where my self-seeking journey ended and figured out my real self started to happen.  Becoming comfortable in my own skin, starting my own business, hitting rock bottom personally, and discovering the loving Jesus I never knew.


I’m not sure how my story will unfold in blogs, but I am guessing it won’t be a chronological story – gotta mix the fun happy stories with the not so fun stories.  At the end of the day, I want an outlet to share my story of finding Joy in life and hopefully help a person or two along the way.  Through blogging, sharing scriptures that speak to me, and what inspires me {puts a big ‘ole smile on my face}. 


Now I have mentioned God, Jesus, and church – don’t worry I am not here to judge or preach to anyone {I appreciate the same being reciprocated}.  I just want to share how my life has gone from worry, sadness, fear of abandonment, etc. to feelings of joy, peace, being able to get married, etc. 


Thank you for taking the time to read this.  I hope you’ll “stop in” now and again to see how things are going.
