Had I known the details of the past seven years of my life before they passed, I would never have dreamed that I could have survived it. A disabling heart condition. Two children with life-threatening birth defects. A crumbling marriage. Two miscarriages, both eight weeks to the day.
Unfortunately, the list goes on.
I don’t know the specific details of your wounds, whether they’re fresh and raw or healed to the point of nearly invisible scars. Perhaps you’ve recently lost a loved one or have admitted your child to the hospital. Maybe you’ve recently moved, lost a job, or have separated with little chance of reconciliation.
But from where I stand today, I can assure you that there is hope.
When I was in the thick of the hardest moments and the scorching fear and searing pain threatened to completely discourage and overwhelm me, I desperately needed to find an oasis in the desert where I could drink deeply from the well of someone who understood, someone who’d been there and done that. Someone who owned a pair of worn, sand-ridden sandals buried deep in the closet, someone willing to drag them out to walk a few dusty miles by my side.
So relax against the cool, smooth stones and rest your weary soul while I dust off my sandals.
I want to walk with you.
GOALS for DRINKING FROM THE WELL
- To share our story as a means of encouraging others
- To provide helpful information to families in active crisis
- To provide resources that promote healing post-crisis
- To give ideas that will help strengthen family relationships
- To share the love of Jesus, the Living Water that quenches every thirst
- Future goal – to provide resources for homeschoolers
“Let anyone who is thirsty come to Me and drink. Whoever believes in Me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.” John 7:37-38
