    • I appreciate being able to share my story. I hope to encourage and uplift others! Being called to be brave doesn’t have to mean a cancer journey, and it is my prayer that women will know they are loved and accepted no matter what path they are on.

  1. April,
    This was so beautiful! I’ve been down that road, too. When my hair fell out I was devastated. But you are right, we are so much more than hair, or body size, or clothes. We are His beautiful daughters. Thanks for reminding me today. ❤️

  2. Raw, personal, and beautiful. Thank you April.

    How different our relationships would be — with others, and with ourselves — if we could see as Jesus sees

    • Right?!! Too often we focus on the wrong things (looks, status, or what have you) and forget to see with God’s eyes. We live in a broken world, but can shine his light in the dark!

  3. Such a great reminder of where our identity and worth come from! Thanks for your vulnerability and willingness to share your journey.

  4. Full of hope and grace while we read that we are so much more then our hair. I was moved as I got a glimpse of personal story of healing of a warrior. This story is short and is a must read. Thank you for letting us experience your journey with you.
