I'm just your run of the mill Southern girl who grew up thinking there was something fundamentally wrong with me.
(Yeah, that didn't work so well for me in perfection-driven Southern culture)
(That’s way too long!)
I hid from myself, really disconnected from the depth of emotions God had given me. Remember, I thought I was broken?
Yeah. Broken things are pushed away and hidden. They shouldn't be seen. At least, that's what little Sara believed.
It sounds strange to me now, but I spent my entire life believing everyone could be in process BUT ME. I had to have everything together, perfectly. But that was super hard for little Sara to do. Over the course of my life, I went through some unexplainably traumatic situations. So I made sense of it by taking on the blame of brokenness.
In 2017, I suffered some tragic loss that forcibly began my healing journey. Alone and isolated, I began to see my true self for the first time and let God see me, too. Shockingly, He wasn't scared of my brokenness. In fact, I didn't feel so broken next to Him anymore. So I gave myself some compassion, unraveled, and embraced my imperfections.
Even through it all, I was kinda cute, right?
Yet I yearned for something real but didn't know how to find it. I was afraid to show up and afraid to connect.
Not any more!
Now I choose to daily show up in all my relationships, helping others discover that meeting God in pain and showing up in the mess is the only way to live…
