I love stories. One of my favorite things in stories is when something small or subtle solves a big problem. There is nothing quite like the moment I realize something I’ve underestimated or forgotten about saves the day. I am a big fan of those twists and I got the unique pleasure of experiencing them during my recovery process. Before I go on, I’ll give a little more context to make sure we’re all on the same page. It’s easy…

It’s important to take a moment before I dive into this list. I could not have experienced the freedom I have without God. Without him, all of these steps would get me a partial freedom.

Hey Everybody, I recently did an interview with a friend of mine I met at the writer’s conference I attended in March of this year. Her name is Barb Raveling and she’s a great author. Like myself, she writes about and works with people on the hurts, habits, and hangups of our lives. I encourage you to check out her blog. It has a great wealth of resources to help process through some of the difficult things in our lives…
