If you have been following me for a while you may already know I have a history living with an array of illnesses. Ranging from Ulceritive Colitis which lead to an Ileostomy, Multiple Sclerosis, Seizures and a fun disease called Pyoderma Gangrenosum. The nature of these illnesses and conditions does not allow for my children... Continue Reading →


When faced with adversity, it tends to be human nature to allow our minds to go into a negative space. Especially when an event comes seemingly out of nowhere.

We face many circumstances in life that are difficult to understand. Whether it be a terrorist attack, a car accident or a personal life altering experience.
