My name is Brittany.
I’m a mother, a writer, and a student of life.
There used to be a whole lot more to me, but I’ve come to realize that putting my identity in Christ is a whole lot more simple and satisfying than any of that other stuff ever was.
I’m in the process of building my life from the ground up, which means I’m really not much different from you. We all have obstacles to overcome. We’re growing every day. It’s a journey. I used to be so focused on the goal that I was oblivious to the path I was on. The blinders I wore obstructed my view of the scenery, the people, and the laughter around me. It was a dismal way of life and it caught up with me. Some people said it happened too soon. Me? I wish it had happened earlier. Because once you awaken to the light, the only regret you carry is having lived so long in the darkness of obscurity. So there’s not a moment to loose!
Life is crazy, but I love every minute of it. There’s no doubt in my mind that only God could have orchestrated the countless blessings in my life. I’ve been freed from the chains of an eating disorder, the shame of divorce, and the darkness of depression. Life has not turned out as my high school self had planned, but I consider myself a walking miracle. By all rights I shouldn’t even be alive, let alone thriving.
One of my greatest blessings is the opportunity to mother the most wonderful little girl on the face of the planet. God sent Skylar to help save my life and she does it on a daily basis. I love everything about her. She makes me laugh, even when she gets into trouble. You’ll hear and see a lot of her on this site because she’s everything to me and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
