My name is Cristin, I am 37 years old and I am a native to Georgia, originating in Savannah, Georgia and growing up in, what use to be, the small town of Cumming, Ga. I now reside with my husband in the North Atlanta area. Combined, my husband and I have 3 boys (10, 11, & 15) and 1 girl (17 years)
We also have two fur-babies, Garfield and Odie, which are our over sized, very spoiled & human-like cats.
I love, love, love Mexican food! My next favorite in line would be salads and veggies, contradictory right? I love being outdoors, especially on some type of body of water! I also love binge watching movies and TV shows. I was previously a cosmetologist after attending the Aveda Institute in Atlanta, I love coloring hair and creating art. I have finished real estate school and am preparing for my exam in the coming months. And, of course, most importantly, I love Jesus, my family, and my friends. I miss seeing them during this time we are all having to social distance.
We all have been through struggles in life, I want to be open and share some of the things I have experienced in my life. Some are tragic and sad but the good thing is, I didn’t stay there forever. It seemed like forever and I never thought I would make it in this broken world we live in, but I did. The main thing I want my readers to know is that we can all take the negative things we have been through in life and turn them into something positive. It may not seem like it & it may take years or even decades, but your story may help someone else one day. That is why I want to share my story and encourage others to do the same. I hope sharing my story touches someone out there!
I wanted to create a blogging site based based on things such as faith, love, hope, suicide and most importantly Mental Illness and Jesus. One thing I want everyone to know is that you are not judged here! We all bleed RED. This site is to help & encourage one another. This site is made for you to feel comfortable sharing your stories and reading others. Trust me, whatever your story is, there is someone that has been through the same type of thing. You are never alone! Although it may seem that way, I promise you are loved.
I want us to share our stories, testimony’s, and journey together. You have a voice and deserve to be heard. You are so far from alone, it will amaze you to know how many of us go through similar situations.
I was dead, but came to life on 7/29/2018. The enemy had a death grip on me that I knew I would never escape from. I thought my only option was to die, that I would never get over the pain and shame. If you feel that way, I want to tell you that’s NOT true, it is a lie!
