Today’s Five minute Friday word is {Tell}


I have been blogging now for about 5 years, and my soul purpose for writing my blog is to "tell" my story and no longer sit in the silence I was forced into since I was little.

When I first began the blog I slowly began with just photos to words. I slowly would talk about my life as a mom to 3 amazing boys, and how my husband and I have been married for 20+ years and how much I love being a mom and wife and more so a child of God and about my faith.

I slowly began to bring my words to bigger thoughts and my thoughts to a story. I found that my voice from the silence that was put upon me was "connecting" and not only connecting but it was the power of "telling".

5 years into my blog writing and I am telling my story, and I am not longer sitting in the silence of pain and suffering. I use my voice and tell my story for a purpose and I believe God has given me a purpose.

I am an adult survivor of child sexual abuse and I have a story to tell. I write my truth about my healing process and write about the good and hard days. My truth is the path to healing and the path to healing is a connection not only to others but it's my path to God.

I use my blog as my voice, and everyday I am grateful for this space to be whatever I need and or want to be. NO one can take this voice away from me - not this time.

I can tell my story however way I need to and I am blessed that God has given me the ability to do so.

If you have a story or truth that holds you from being the person you need to be - TELL IT! Tell your story!

God gave us a voice for a reason, and there are people who are waiting to embrace you in that.

"Tell" me your thoughts, I would love to connect with you.
