For you dear Mother Earth

It keeps stirring up inside of me... and sometimes writing is all I know how to do in the moment.  But if you need a space to just be, breathe, scream, rant, or say nothing at all I pray this blog can be that place for you today.

YES!  A book I say!  In my looooong hiatus I have been doing a lot of writing and piecing together and soul searching for what to do next and how to heal and how to encourage others on my journey.  The answer to that soul searching is testimony, a book o...
