We are sisters and friends: bonded by blood, separated by miles, forging a path of resilience.
Join us as we laugh, cry, encourage, and share our hearts with you!
Our lives have been complicated by mold exposure and we've become sensitive to much of the world around us. We've been learning how to function in a world filled with mold and toxic chemicals, and continue to battle symptoms in our healing journey.
I'm a child of the King, and through hard and raw challenges, Jesus continues to show me that He is enough. God has not given me the life I expected, and he is using that to grow and change me. I am able to live with resilience only because of him and his work in me!
Five years ago I was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Along with that diagnosis came plenty of "co-infections" and other results of having a sub-par immune system. After a couple of years of fighting hard to re-gain a measure of health, we traveled the adoption road, and after 5 months of praying for, supporting, and loving the birth mom she chose not to place her baby girl with us.
Shortly after the failed adoption, we found out that our house had mold and were blessed with an army of support and help as my health fell apart and I could no longer function. Due to my health we were forced to moved to a completely different area, starting all over again with nothing.
I have learned so much about what really matters in life as everything extra in my life beyond literal moment-by-moment survival has been stripped away. What does it mean to truly live by, "But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content," (1 Tim. 6:8)? (And with my allergies, I've barely had food -- and with throwing everything away multiple times, hardly clothing!)
As a refugee of sorts on this earth, my mind is directed to the glories that I have to look forward to in the future. Because it's not ultimately about this earth, after all.
