There are so many things that happen to us throughout our lifetime. Things that we have no control over. Things that we don't plan for. In this book I pull back the curtain and reveal all the messy details of my past. Things that would make people cringe at the thought of having to live through. The death of a loved one, a car accident, a divorce, etc. We don't plan for these types of events to happen, but they can happen to anyone. And when they do, they can often leave us wandering around lost in darkness. It's painful, overwhelming, and unsettling. But I have learned that even during those times of darkness there are slivers of light that streak across the sky like lightning. Their presence is inconceivable and breathtakingly beautiful all at once. Moments of Grace. Moments where God whispers, "Even here, lost to darkness, there is still something beautiful to behold."
I grew up in an unconventional family, fought through toxic relationships, and suffered the agony of realizing my son would no longer be here with me. Yet, throughout those very dark moments of my past, I've had God flicker magnificent specs of grace all throughout my life. Even when I didn't see it so clearly, He was working things out in the background.
I don't know where you're at in life or which chapter your story is on, but my hope and prayer is that sharing my messy life details might bring you peace and hope. If you're walking around lost to darkness, my hope is that this book may leave you enlightened by grace.
