There is a story burning in my soul.
A story about nightmares coming true.
A story about a carefully crafted life that crumbled.
A story about thick masks that ripped away.
A story about a mind, body & spirit suffering darkest fear & pain.
A story about a family asking why…

I know the story well, because it’s my story. And it’s time to send it out into the world to you.

Burnout and breakdown no longer define me. The twisted weeds that strangled me are thinned. The light is shining and joy is spilling over in a way I never knew and never thought was possible.

The journey was messy and scary.  It was also very good.  I was stripped down, yet I was reborn. I learned so many life changing truths. And I want you to know them, too. I want you to see yourself in the warning signs, in the pit of despair, and in the healing.

Join me on this page in October as I share daily doses of a story that I hope will change your life as it has changed mine.

Be Still and Be Well.
Laura

Parenting is trying to do the right thing 80% of the time and trusting God to fill the gap the other 20%! Let's be honest though...some days it's more like 50/50:) #SeekingTheStill ift.tt/2xkVqlc ... See MoreSee Less

Maybe...just maybe...when God said “Do Not Fear” 365 times, He said it gently as a Father to a young child. Not as a command to be obeyed, but as a reassurance. #JustSaying #OffMySoapBoxNow #SeekingTheStill ift.tt/2wtKvrV ... See MoreSee Less

My fingers come alive when I write. They tap and flow across the keyboard like a pianist. I don’t understand it, but I love it. So why don’t I do every day? Hmpf. #MessyMiracleProblems #SeekingTheStill ift.tt/2xeMNZc ... See MoreSee Less

There's always going to be a to-do list, a wish-I-did list, and let's be real, a wish-I-didn't list. Jesus promises that He will be found if we seek Him, but we need to create space to be able to do that. Join me in doing that today. #SeekingTheStill ift.tt/2w3sYYm ... See MoreSee Less

Wherever your feet find you today, walk in Truth. Just put one foot in front of the other and do the next right thing. Watch out for Jesus to meet you. Because He will...in ways you never expect! Photo via @shopsteviehender #SeekingTheStill ift.tt/2vo0h50 ... See MoreSee Less

If you would have told me years ago, in the middle of the darkest season of my life, that I would emerge on the other side - that I would make it - I may not have believed you. But I have, because Jesus is a hero. He rescued me, resuscitated me, and released me. If you're in your dark season right now, let me give you this hope: Jesus hasn't left you and light will break through. One day you'll be able to tell your own story of the Hero. #SeekingTheStill ift.tt/2vk0HJR ... See MoreSee Less

Doutble tap if you’ve ever hidden in the bathroom when you don’t feel like you belong. I’ve done this at church. At school. At parties. At conferences... I guess there’s something about locking a door and taking a moment to breathe. It helps the sick feeling when I JUST WANT TO BE KNOWN. Thanks @jennakutcher for the reminder that we lonelies are the best ones to do something about the loneliness of others. #SeekingTheStill ift.tt/2uckayR ... See MoreSee Less
