Chronic illness that lays you up in bed for years in your twenties, limits your mobility drastically and causes sometimes visible symptoms is not good. But God can and will bring good out of messes like my own and redeem our messy stories. I know anytime I visit a blog, I like to get to know their vision, so you can see ours here, more about me here and our start here page to see some of our favorite articles.
