I’m an almost-30-something, which now seems much less old than it used to!

I have a longer list of interests than time to spend on them: isn’t that always the way?  They include photography of interesting places and people, a handful of English authors from the 20th century, poetry and music, enough space and time to ponder the important questions of life, pots of Irish tea, and collecting friends whose quirks make me smile.

I spend most of my time with my three most favorite people in the world; my incredible husband, and two of the funniest (and funnest!) little people I’ve ever had the good fortune to meet. I call them My Buddy, and Bug; they call me mommy.

I am on a perpetual journey from my personal City of Destruction to the Celestial City!  Bumps on the road are many, and I am often a dusty and weary traveler, but I am watching God redeem the time!  I rest in the hope that one day my journey will make sense.

In the meantime, I plod on below, with the people I love around me, and the knowledge that Jesus is a faithful companion, and I don’t have to go it alone ever again!

  2. Hi!
    I just finished ready your story. I am so sorry for what you and your siblings have gone thru!
    I hope all of you were able to get away from your abusive home?
    Do you have any contact with your parents now? Do they have any regrets?
    I pray that your brothers were able to overcome this. I think I would have gone back and given this monster a piece of his own treatment once I was grown. He should not be able to get away with this. Surely there must be other people who suffered under this horrible teaching – has anyone confronted him?

    Lots of questions – sorry but I just find it hard to read about this sort of abuse. I will understand if you do not answer. Just know that even strangers do care about you!


  3. I just wanted to tell you how much your story has touched me. I can relate to some of the things you’ve been through and I’m so glad you’ve been able to move on and experience the wonderful, incredible love and grace of God. I too, have begun to experience it more in my 30’s than I ever did growing up. Many blessings to you and your family!


    • Regina, thank you for your heartfelt words! I’ve met some amazing people with similar journeys to mine since starting to write my story down – I’m very encouraged to hear of others like you who passed through the fire and came out with stronger faith on the other side!
