Hi, I’m Christina!
And I’m so honored and excited that you’re here.
You are the reason I keep writing. Because I want you to know the things I wish someone had told me. I want to share with you what I have learned and am still learning about living a whole, full, healthy life in all areas: mind, body, and soul.
So thanks for being here, and for allowing me to share my heart and my life with you. My prayer is that as I share my thoughts you will come to see that I care deeply about you, no matter if we’ve met, we’ve written, or we don’t know each other. I am and always will be praying for you.
Sometimes God feels really far away. Like on those days when it feels like the world is falling apart and everything is a mess and oh it’s also a Sunday so you’re “supposed” to drag your butt to church but that is literally the last thing you want to do. Yeah, I get it.
This little book contains a big piece of my heart and just in case you’re not sure who should read it, I’ve compiled a short(ish) list of people I wrote it for…
I first put myself on a diet when I was about 11 years old. After that and for over 10 years I have tried every “diet” out there.
I think my biggest mistake in my spirituality has been to think my holiness is up to me. This fault especially comes out around big liturgical times like Advent when I think the readiness of my heart depends on how many “things” I do, and how many devotions I can check off the list (and post on instagram), and having the right candles and journals and prayers.
If you don’t have clear goals and a plan to reach them, you will stay in the same place you’re in right now.
My voice cracked as I said it and tears began to stream down my face. It was 5:30 in the morning on the day we were leaving to move to California.
In case you scroll through social media and begin to feel sad that your life doesn’t look like anyone else’s feeds. Remember, people share the highlight reel, not the behind the scenes of their every day.
I needed to hear that if I wanted to have a healthy, happy relationship with a man, I needed to become that kind of person myself.
