Ever wondered what it’s like to be a non-traditional college student?  Divorced?  Remarried?

Has it ever puzzled you how people can lose a child, and still manage to go on in life?

Maybe you have experienced some of these things yourself.  Ever tried to parent four children who all have ADHD diagnoses? Are you struggling to come to terms with your own medical diagnosis, or that of a child who might be autistic?  Maybe you are married to someone with a chronic illness, and you know what it is like to juggle that responsibility as you go through life.

Have you ever struggled to make it, living in poverty, while people around you didn’t understand?

Is there abuse in your past, whether from a parent or an ex-spouse?  Maybe you are painfully aware of what it feels like to realize you have gotten involved in a cult.  Do you know what it feels like to try to break free and have a healthy concept of God?

Have you struggled with anxiety, depression, or loneliness?  Have you ever felt hopeless, or unappreciated?

What about the search for a job, when you’ve finally become eligible?  Do you know what it is like to struggle with self doubt?

That is what this site is all about.  We have gone through, or are going through, these same struggles, and we know what it is like to look up from what feels like the bottom rung of the social ladder.  We want to explore the pulsing realities of what it means to truly live in a world where there is no “happily ever after”.  This site is all about finding one’s strength in the middle of being painfully aware of one’s fragility.

We believe that our very fragility is what gives us strength…that the scars lend a beauty to our story that could come no other way.  Whether talking from the standpoint of Kenneth, my amazing husband, who has learned to live with Multiple Sclerosis, or from my shredded viewpoint, as a battle weary mother of four extraordinary sons, we want to get down to where you live, and share with you some of the joys and trials, but mostly the lessons that we have learned along the way.
