Because, honestly, the church has, as a whole, been extremely irresponsible when it comes to Mental Health concerns & abuse...But, I will no longer stay silent. I will give a voice - finally, a true & honest voice - to my pain, my struggle. I will no longer live in fear or walk on eggshells.
There's almost nothing better than a brand new journal - fresh pages ready to be filled with feelings, stories, adventures. And, I got this beauty all ready for the 2016 year - complete with my set of Challenges.
