“The Lord is near to all who call on him,
to all who call on him in truth.” 
Psalm 145:18

Shaped and Influenced
Each of our lives is shaped and influenced by those around us – sometimes darkly negative, and sometimes profoundly positive. From some we get just glimpses of new thinking, and from some, samplings of attitude or examples to embrace and follow, or perhaps, avoid. Though there are many who in varying degrees have impacted my own thinking and helped to shape me emotionally, spiritually, and directionally, there is one from whom I have learned, gained understanding, and enlarged my sense of purpose – one who is distinct in the walk she has taken with me over the decades.

Accepting My Diagnosis
It was my supreme prayer to be healed from bipolar disorder. The summer following my first hospitalization at sixteen, a minister at a church healing service prayed over me to be delivered from my mental illness. Since then, I believed I was. Eventually, after hearing a televangelist preach that we have it within ourselves to be healed, and all we need is faith, I decided it was time to go off my medications and prove healing in Jesus’s name. Doubts that I may not have had a serious mental illness after all buried their seeds in my mind and this preacher on TV watered them.
I was 24 years old now and had been married for three years. My husband Chris knew I had my diagnosis, but with the medicine I was taking and therapy I’d had, its symptoms remained in remission for the time we’d known each other. READ MORE
