img_0399Welcome to my blog.


Do you struggle to feel good enough? Well enough? Just enough? Do you know how to figure out what you want and need and do you have the courage to go get it? I’ve faced these questions and more.

I am a thirty-something wife and mom, living in South Africa. My incredibly strong husband and joyful little girl teach me daily about purposeful living. I’ve walked the rocky path of various health challenges from time to time – depression, asthma, fibromyalgia, anemia, digestive issues, chronic fatigue and some medication-induced problems. I have learned where I begin and illness ends. I have learned that I can choose not to live at the mercy of my health, but by the grace of God that strengthens me.

I want to share what helped me get here. After doing years of research and experimenting, I found many other, better, safer and healthier ways to address the root issues behind depression (and various other serious and general health problems). If you are hurting, mistreated, feeling powerless and ill-equipped to cope, to heal and to take ownership of life and health, you’re in the right place. If you are looking for ways to encourage a loved one in this challenging situation, welcome and well done for trying to help. Please ask questions, share your stories and let’s figure things out together.

I typically write once a week, giving you a safe space to:

  1. rediscover hope that has real substance in any challenge
  2. joy that is practical and tangible at any time
  3. practical coping skills and natural remedies as I try them and
  4. tools that help you empower yourself to be more than okay in life, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
