Being Shameless...

For many years I have wanted to start a blog to really share everything about myself. From the depths of shame where I used to dwell, to the brutiful life I am blessed with. We all have so many life experiences, many of which we keep to ourselves due to embarassment, shame, and feeling like no one else in the world has experienced the same thing.

Deciding to become Shameless is a decision I have to make every day...sometimes multiple times per day. When you spend most of your life feeling ashamed, it becomes your safe place, and is therefore a very hard habit to break. Inspired greatly by Glennon Doyle Melton, I have felt led by God to put it all out there with the hope that others might not feel alone.

Letting God shine His light into those cold and lonely corners of darkness will tear down the walls we've built around ourselves and our hearts. Beyond those walls you will see that you are not alone - there are so many others, just waiting for you, in hopes of connecting with someone who "gets it".
