Overcomers Series

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by!

In this part of my blog, you’ll find real-life stories of people who have been through the fire and have a story to tell. These are people who have literally walked through the valley of the shadow of death and found that although it was dark, God was still present.

I hope their stories cheer you on to keep on fighting, to never give up, to rise up and overcome.

P.S. if you have a story of overcoming adversity that you’d like to share with the readers, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Together, we’ll make a life raft from the ashes of our trauma and help other people to safety.

With Unvarnished Love,

These three have mastered the art of leaving us completely undone, robbed and violated. It’s easy to scroll past the pain of … Continue reading A Song for the Night
