About the Author

I am about to be 30 years old and I finally feel as though I am at a place where "I have arrived." In other words, I am content. My life is good, and my God has shown me that all the things that the world has to offer are...

  1. What a lovely testimony. Congratulation to you and praise God for a life transformed.
    Living that transformed life is your Gift back to God.

    Beautiful you.

  2. Bless you, what a beautiful post. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Thank you for courageous honest writing. Yes we all have scars…”we will move on, although with scars, so Lord move inside of me”-Rich Mullens

  3. I love your story. What stays in the dark grows bigger, secrets revealed allow for God’s healing. I have my own miracle story where God showed himself to me in a mighty way. He is so good. Praise God for your life and beautiful post.

  4. Thanks Mindy. God used your writing to remind me of the dangers of romanticizing the past, wanting to escape from reality and keeping it a secret. I’ve eroded my relationship with God by not believing in His love and goodness, & I’ve eroded my relationship with my husband by not sharing my struggles with him. I’m going to talk to my husband and pray.
    I’ll be praying for you & your husband. Have a happy ’10th anniversary’

    • Megan, That makes me so happy. That is what sharing our hearts is all about. I am so thankful that God used this writing to remind you of his truths! I am praying that your talk with your husband goes well.

  5. I felt the Holy spirit prompting me tp create a blog called courage. I googled andthere you were. Bless you! I have loved The Lord with my whole heart for 27 years. My struggles from the death of my husband cause me to not trust anymore. Praise God for your blog. It reminds me who I am in Christ!

    • Oh Nancy, I am so sorry that your husband passed. Pain is such a hard thing to understand. I’m thankful that I don’t have to understand everything about why things happen to know that I can trust our Father. You know? He’s good Nancy, I’m saying a prayer for you right now.

  6. Wow…Mindy…you know, we *do* all have our scars, including me…and I’ve only been REALLY walking strong with the Lord for a few months now…and there you are celebrating 10 beautiful years of knowing Him – it just gives me chills, and your testimony gives me such hope that someday my sins and my scars will not matter to me {at least much less than they do now}, and I will simply be content in Him. I’m getting there, and you’ve given me even more hope.

    • Oh Doris, it’s definitely a journey. Sometimes my words and desires don’t always play out, but I can definitely tell you that many of the scars I though would never heal no longer bring me any pain at all. Be graceful with yourself, God will continue to make you whole. YAY for you and your new life in Christ!! That is soo exciting! I’m thankful for you!

  7. Very good sharing dear sister. May you be blessed to be a strong vessel in HIS Mighty Hand for many especially youth in these times when the world seems upside down. Let His Glory fill you in a Mighty way for His Name
