This site is all about finding God in the messy places of our lives -- amidst the struggle, pain and sometimes isolation of chronic illness. You were just diagnosed and are scared and want to know if there is a God? Or you might be a lifelong person of faith, trying to find meaning and hope. Whoever you are, welcome!
For 2 decades I have dealt with multiple chronic illnesses. From depression and anxiety to unexplained physical issues and rare diseases. You name it, I've been there. My illnesses are hard to manage. It's hard to keep the faith and keep going. This is where I turn to God for strength and peace. Want to join me on the journey?
I am a Christian -- Catholic to be more specific. I believe in fully embracing the word Catholic, which really means "universal." This means whatever your sexual orientation, gender identity, cultural background, color or creed, you are welcomed and accepted here. We are all family. We are all loved and created by God. There are no exceptions.
I have always struggled to find a community that encompasses being Christian, gay and chronically ill. I hope to create that community here.
