2017- A Year of Healing (3)

I have a word for 2017. It’s HEALING. And I want to do something exciting on this blog. I want to use the word HEALING as my theme for my content throughout 2017, because there are SO many aspects of healing I want to cover.

So what will this look like? I’m glad you asked. Every month, I will be writing posts, making videos or podcasts, and interviewing guests on a variety of healing-related topics. I’ll also be including guided prayer/meditations and basic yoga practices, as well as some art therapy projects. Basically, a whole lot of really cool stuff!

If you sign up for my Grief & Healing newsletter, I will always be providing exclusive monthly content where I will specifically tackle the health topic when it comes to grief. So that content will not be shared anywhere else except in my newsletter—so subscribe today if you haven’t!

2017 Blog Schedule: A Year of Healing

A Year of Healing (1)

February – Relational Healing

Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner, I’m going to wrestle with the topic of relational issues. This could be romantic relationships, or friendships, or family, etc. But what does healing look like in the context of relationships? What are signs of relational abuse, and what does it mean to truly give and receive love in a healthy manner?


March – Mental Healing

Depression, suicide, despair…these are words we’re all kind of scared to talk about; mental health is still such a controversial topic—a topic still so full of shame. It doesn’t have to be, and there are so many ways to tackle this subject, especially when you’ve had really hard things happen in your life. I personally have dealt with depression and know firsthand the struggles one can face. We’re gonna think about practical ways to take care of our minds. Yeah, it’s a thing.

April – June
Took a hiatus due to *crazy* schedule as I finished up my yoga certification program. Way too intense to be doing so much blogging, and I had to step away!


do what is rightnot what is easy

September – Bodily/Sexual Healing

As someone who has struggled with Lyme Disease for 10 years now, I am passionate about physical health and what it means to love and take care of one’s body—even in the midst of hardship. In fact, physical symptoms in the body often point to other issues we’re having inside ourselves. What does it mean to fully embrace one’s body, to love it, and to take care of it?

October 2017Spiritual Healing

October – Spiritual Healing

Okay, this topic maybe sounds weird to some of you, but spiritual health is actually something that truly needs to be wrestled with. I had a friend die in a cult, so this is a particular subject I really want to include. So what does spiritual health look like? Because not every church, pastor, or spiritual group is a good thing…and we need to be wrestling through these issues if we want spiritual vitality.


November & December – Creative & Emotional Healing

I want to provide various ways that anyone (not just amazing artists) can use creativity as an outlet for healing. Because these dang emotions are vital to healing. I’m a feeler, so I’ve always been comfortable with emotions, but I’ve come to realize that a lot of people have no idea how to access or tap into their true emotional center—which is crucial to mental, physical, and spiritual health. Health is not just about an individual, but how we interact with others and treat our world. If you haven’t learned to truly think through yourself and how to find healing—how will you ever truly care about your community, the world? We will think through issues like social justice and the environment.

If anyone has specific questions, or if anyone feels like they might have something to share during any of these months, contact me! I will be curating content for this, and I really want to share other people’s input, too.

So yay! Thanks for reading, and I’m looking forward to 2017!
