The journey of my life has been much like a roller coaster over the last year and a half. 2013 was a challenging year, to say the least, as I attempted to pastor a church while my family was disintegrating. I soon resigned the pastorate, wondering what my future would hold.

God began to bring healing to my life as I returned to a community I dearly loved and that dearly loved me. Healing is impossible without a loving community.

If your life is broken, don’t attempt to heal alone. Find a loving church community and a good counselor to help you through it. You can later use your difficulties to help someone else.
