Here’s Why Your Story Matters

For most of my life I believed that my story didn’t matter. I grew up with this innate need to hide my true self in the shadows and because of that, I never thought that anyone could be helped by my lived experiences. 
How would it help anyone to know that I had been molested as a child? 
Who would benefit by me sharing about how I couldn’t look anyone in the eye until I was in my twenties? 
Why would anyone care that for many years I subconsciously looked for friendships and relationships with people who were too shallow to look past the emotional wall I put up and really get to know me on a deeper level? 
The truth is…all of it matters. It matters because other people are going through the same challenges right now and they need to know that there’s hope.

Your story (and mine) of overcoming what they’re currently experiencing can spark hope within them. 

Another reason your story (and mine) matters is because there is a very real enemy out there and he would love nothing more than for us to believe that we are alone. That no one else ever struggles the way we do. That our challenges are unique, weird, disgusting, or whatever else he wants to throw at us and so we hide.
We hide our true selves and we hide our true stories because we don’t think that anyone could understand what we’re going through or we’re afraid that we’ll be judged.
When we share authentically we give others permission to be vulnerable too. We become a light in the darkness for them and suddenly, they’re not so alone. Suddenly they have hope. Suddenly they have an ally who understands because they’ve been there too.
This only happens through authentic, real, and vulnerable truth. 
So share your stories friend. People everywhere need to know that they’re not alone and that there is light at the end of this tunnel. Your story matters and it will inspire so many people if only you’ll share it. 
Won’t you?

More About Me!

I published my first book in 2020 and went on to publish several more books within a year. I write fiction and non fiction and love to help others write and publish books as well.

I was adopted as a baby, have gone through stage four metastatic cancer, and nearly lost my life during my last pregnancy due to placenta percreta. I believe that we go through difficult circumstances so that we can reach back into the fire with buckets of water to help others.

My life ambitions include expanding my non profit organization to provide financial relief to families going through an unexpected medical crisis, building safe haven homes for women and their children escaping domestic violence situations, and learning how to homestead in order to become more self sufficient.



I dropped out of high school in the 11th grade, switched to an alternate school and was valedictorian the following year.


I met my husband on a sort of blind date when I was 15 and have been in love with him ever since (married for nearly 15 years now!).


I’ve always homeschooled my three amazing kids because I genuinely love getting to hang out with them every day.
