One year ago today I nervously pressed the “publish” button and immediately Broken But Adored became live to the public. Despite some hesitancy, I decided to take the leap of faith and create a blog that would give a voice to OCD and proclaim the name of Jesus. I prayed this little space on the internet would encourage and strengthen others in their faith as well as diminish the shame that often accompanies mental illness. I felt extremely vulnerable putting everything out there – but I also felt very led by the Lord.
However, writing a blog is more difficult than I ever would have imagined. Sometimes my mind is blank and new post ideas cease to come. And then there are the times when life gets in the way and a blog becomes an unnecessary stress that needs to be put aside for some time. You might have noticed that I did not post on Tuesday. I am actually in one of those writing block ruts right now. And I think I need to take a break for a little while and allow the creative juices to start working again.
I hope you know how appreciative I am that you stop by here and follow along. I am honored and humbled that anyone would be interested in what I have to say. If you have any requests or suggestions for future posts, please feel free to message me and let me know! I would love any help I can get. I hope to be back sooner rather than later.
