8 months with this guy! 😱❤️
Thanks for putting up with my lack of ability to be serious in photos, your patience and love astounds me on a daily basis 😂❤️
. Thank you for introducing me to The Witcher and bullying me into traveling to Skellige, it's been a life changing experience 😂❤️
, you're one heck of a guy 😍
Today marks 365 days since the start of my journey with trauma.
The photo was taken by a friend in the short period of time following the day my life changed. This was before the drastic weight loss, before the suicidal struggle with my mind, before I withdrew from my walk with Christ.
Since then, I've experienced my lowest lows, and greatest highs; I've met the most beautiful of people through this walk, built on my own identity, helped others with their own journeys, and found a renewed passion for the Lord.
I've been driven to speak publicly about mental health awareness, and was given the opportunity to lay the path for conceptualizing the book that I plan to write in future.
It's been a long, daunting and refreshing (contradictory, I know) walk; yet I wouldn't wish it away as it's enabled me to view life in a different light and pursue a future that I never thought possible
Today I had the privilege of listening to this incredible man preach and share with the kids at Junior Youth.
It has been such an honour to watch him grow in his leadership, and witness his walk with the Lord.
He inspires me in so many ways that I could never possibly list them, but most of all I am greatful for the man of God that he is.
He encourages me to be the woman I never saw myself as, he leads me daily through his wisdom and spiritual knowledge; and most of all, he has helped me immensely in my own walk with Christ. Joel, with your encouragement I have not only found a home at Rivers, but have gone from being a casual Christian by label; to someone who pursues a constant relationship with the Lord, and has found happiness in planting myself as a volunteer within the church.
There's just something about serving and giving of yourself that gives you an immense peace at heart.
I am so immeasurably proud of you and the excellence that you always give of yourself, thank you for impacting my life so deeply and for all that you do ❤️ #manofGod
To be honest, I'm just winging it. My eyeliner, my life, everything.
Just a couple of snacks 🤷🏻♀️
2019 catch-up 💣
Things have been busy this year, but beyond incredible to say the least.
I partnered with a church that I love, and in doing so I've planted myself by serving in the Young Adults ministry every Friday night.
I learned to believe in myself, and started living in confidence.
I moved into my first bachelor apartment which is fitted with a miniature loft and is such an incredible living experience.
I started my 3rd year of studies in my degree, I'm proud of myself through sticking through it all.
I had my first published interview.
And through it all, I have been blessed to have such an incredible and loving man by my side.
Here's to a year of creating and living in confidence!
The best Valentine a girl could ask for ❤️
Shes an American Beauty // I'm an American Psycho 🥀
A throwback to a Fall Out Boy inspired facepaint I did back when I was about 16 or 17 in anticipation for their upcoming album.
Still rocking the iconic eyeliner though.
