ABOUT This Undeserved Life
You know when something bad happens in your life—you discover you're infertile, you miscarry, you experience birth trauma, you're fired traumatically—turning your world upside down, and someone comes along and tries to make you feel better... but instead, you feel worse?
Maybe they say “This was God’s plan,” “It was meant to be,” “You’ll learn something from this,” or “You’ll be fine eventually.”
What they’re really doing is stripping you of your permission to grieve.
In This Undeserved Life, you will not only find permission, you will encounter the invitation to grieve loss. All loss. You will discover that loss is unquantifiable.
My hope is that you’ll read these pages curled up with a cup of something warm and comforting, you’ll allow your heart to experience big emotions, and you end up discovering an unexpected joy.
This is the story of how I surrendered my sorrow by grabbing ahold of it, leading me to unearth an immense amount of grace.
I'm a Jesus girl. My sorrow created in me an undeniable hunger for Him; I found Him sitting with me in my darkest nightmares.
This is the story of me going from asking, "What did I do to deserve all this pain and sorrow?" to asking, "What did I do to deserve all this grace and goodness?"
Actionable grief workbook prompts: a revised version of Wholeness Despite the Brokenness
