I shared my story on TV (click on video below). On Tuesday February 24, I was interviewed on The Leon Show to talk about anxiety, panic attacks, and the beautiful journey of finding rest — finding spiritual whitespace — when your soul feels stressed.
Take a moment to brew a cup of coffee and watch this interview with me. I watched it with hubby on the couch, peeking through a living throw wrapped around me for comfort. I never imagined I’d ever be talking about childhood memories that have caused me so much private pain so publicly. But now I know God takes brokenness and transforms those hard places in our stories and makes them beautiful because He calls them His — because we are His beloved. As is.

Thank you for the love and support you’ve given me to release the book Finding Spiritual Whitespace. You’ve given me courage to be bold because you let me know this is a shared journey and I represent all of our stories, who are kindreds on this journey of beautiful rest, soul rest! We’re doing this together with God, sweet kindreds.
I couldn’t have done this without you. I once cried bitterly — Why God, would you allow this to happen to me so publicly as a blogger? I’ve wanted to quit so many times and hide. But, every time I’d dare to share honestly from my heart, you shared your stories — even commenting when I could not reply — cheering me on on Facebook, Instagram — and in your quiet way — by simply reading.
You gave me the dignity of being known. Step by step, as I shared my heart and knew I was safe — those little, seemingly insignificant steps — at times tinged with feelings of shame have become a shared experience of God’s tender loving care. His whispers of love grew stronger and deeper, not erasing my pain, but wrapping it with His understanding and compassion. Through kindreds like you.
Thank you for the gift of your stories. Of you. Your voice has changed my journey. Thank you for recommending my book Finding Spiritual Whitespace. By doing so, you’ve turned this journey a beautiful shared experience in community.
Because after all, we all have a story. And every story matters. Truly. Deeply. Irrevocably. We are God’s beloved. As is.
