Musings on personal growth, books, motherhood, writing, and more. "Every hour is saved from that eternal silence, something more, a bringer of new things." – Tennyson
I’ve finally gathered the courage to tell my story openly in a public way, rather than just hinting or offering the barest outline of the facts about how and why I went from Bible zealot to, well, not, and other headlines of my life. It’s still not much, I suppose—just several paragraphs of text published on my blog’s My Story page. But I’m proud of the progress I have made in the personal growth that has helped me feel less inhibited about being myself, standing up for who I am, and sharing myself with my world through speaking out. Many of you, fellow bloggers, have inspired me that way!
