And Killed Him (A Poem)
On days when
The sky and the sea
Are different colors
I'm left wondering
If the God who loves me
And smote my uncle
Are different people

Okay guys, through a few errors (all on my end) the paperback edition of my book is available now here:! If you want me to sign one for you and send it you'll need to pay shipping twice (or come to my book signing) but if you're willing to pay for me to ship it to you from my house I'm totally willing too! As a reminder here is the cheaper online version: Hope you enjoy!

My book is available for preorder!!!! See it now:

Ceramics (A Poem) 

So I am publishing a book of poetry on my journey with Mental Illness (primarily psychosis) in a little over a month. If you'd like regular updates join my mailing list!


I found a retreat center a little over an hour away where I can go pray for the day!

I live in the middle of nowhere (less than 2k in my town). I really want to find a good Christian woman to mentor me, but the church I'm going to is not the best fit for me and I can't picture it having the right mentor. Still, there's no better option. Any advice?

Just started to listen to the liturgists but honestly it reminds me a lot of the podcasts I listen to for work on therapy. (That's a good thing!)

The Liturgists
