And in opening up about things that I didn’t know I was still keeping … Continue reading Self Realization And Fighting Back
I’ve got to be honest with you... after I shared my first post in this series last week I immediately had doubts. Fear of judgement overcame me pretty quickly. Why share these parts of my past that no longer reflect who I am? This is part of my healing process. This is me learning to … Continue reading Addressing The Past To Cleanse My Heart And Bring Myself Closer To Jesus (Part Two)
