HopeandHealing

For as long as I can remember I’ve battled with OCD, anxiety, and depression. Every day {sometimes every moment} is a fight to resist unhealthy thinking. There have been seasons of my life when simply getting out of bed and moving to the couch was the biggest accomplishment of my day.

Do you carry the weight of mental or emotional burdens? Do you feel lost and think no one could possibly understand? I’m writing this post for YOU to share the resources that have given me hope, healing, and comfort – my prayer is that one or all can bring some Light into your darkness. ♥

Mother Teresa Quote

Mother Teresa QuoteI found this WONDERFUL quote a few weeks ago on Google+. I knew immediately I needed to make a Mother Teresa stick figure! Mother Teresa gave SO much more than smiles!!! We may not be able to change the world as she did, but we are certainly able to brighten someone’s day! Make an effort to spread smiles to those who need it – you might be surprised at all the joy that bounces back to you!

Have a beautiful day! ♥
