Strength Will Rise

I started this zine in Anamarie Dwyer’s creative journaling class in December 2014. We were to craft a journal around a word we picked to journey with throughout the following year. My word was Brave. Some of the pieces that ended up in this zine I actually made in that class.  I guess it took me 2 years to grow into that word because I didn’t finish this piece until February 2016. Hell, I’m still growing into it.

I’m proud of this zine and I’m proud of myself. I earned this zine. One Brave Good Next Step at a time. More importantly, God kept showing up and doing His part. As weak as I felt going through a traumatic separation from my husband, building up a life of my own that was financially stable enough to support myself and my son, STRENGTH AROSE when I needed it the most.
