Abundant life. Victory in my everyday circumstances. These are what I desire for myself, and what I hope to focus on in my blog. Oh, and throw in some creativity, honesty, and encouragement, too! 😉
Who I Am
My name is Crystal, and I live in New Jersey with my wonderful husband, Roy, and our two awesome pets. I have been blessed with a supportive family, great friends, and countless other gifts.
Life is still not easy, however. I have struggled with anxiety, OCD, and depression for over a decade, and I try to take baby steps toward recovery each day. I often feel alone and misunderstood, but thankfully, I always have at least one Person who completely understands and accepts me.
Jesus Christ has played an instrumental role in my life. He has saved me, been an ever-present Friend, listens to my prayers, and gives me the hope that I need to keep putting one foot after the other.
What I Enjoy
Some of my favorite things to do are read, watch good movies, take photographs, visit new places, enjoy nature, and be around animals. I also like to try different arts and crafts, write/journal, sip on a good cup of tea or coffee, and spend time with my family and friends.
What My Blog is About
A Journey of Faith is my place to share what’s going on in my life. Whether it’s a lesson learned, an answer to prayer, or a struggle that I’m facing, I seek to be open and honest in my posts.
What I Want My Readers to Know
I LOVE to interact with my readers, and I do hope that you will leave a comment–even if it’s only a short one! Tell me what you think about my post, if there’s something you can relate to, any suggestions that you may have, or even share a word of encouragement! I try my very best to respond to all of the comments I receive, because I want to get to know YOU.
Thank you for reading, and many blessings to you! ❤
