Stories for the (Urban) Soul

A Compilation of Short Stories, Novellas & Poetry

 

“I wasn’t raised in a faith,” Lisa shared. “My parents felt that people who leaned on spirituality were weak. Growing up, it was about working hard and doing it yourself.”

“Ah, I see. And how did that work for them?” Sylvia asked. Her thick curls peppered with grey were shimmering in the light of the room, and to Lisa —if such a thing existed— she looked like an angel.  

“Well, probably not good,” Lisa said, thinking about it. “They ended up divorced when I was 12. My mom took up drinking and I hardly saw my father. He started a new life with a new family.” Lisa’s heart tugged at the memories. She hadn’t really shared that with anyone here in New York, other than Michael.  

“I’m sorry to hear that honey. We all face loss and hard things in this world. Christ has not been a crutch for me, but instead a strong arm to fight with.”  

I sure could use some strength, Lisa thought.

God is Left-Handed

I've always secretly viewed left-handers as being odd. Like they didn't fit into the normal. I took pride in being normal, in coloring inside the lines, so to speak.  I remember, as a kid, my coloring was raved over by my teacher. She oooo'd and ahhed over my...

Yesterday I went to the movies and while there I realized I’ll never have to go alone again. Before this season I never knew that having a child is a form of companionship. I understood it could be an unhealthy source of codependency having had my own experience of...

I began my blogging career on betterthanwine.net. One day I was reading another blog post on recovering from a broken relationship and I wondered, “Why have I never written about my own story?” I promptly typed up the post “How to Overcome Heartbreak: Recovering From Misguided Love”. It became the most viewed blog post on my site to date! As a result of the popular post, I wrote two books to help readers on their journey of healing from heartbreak. I have been so encouraged and blessed by the response to this blog post and books! Writing has been so therapeutic in my own healing journey and has provided a platform to connect with many who have similar experiences.

 

I have a passion for learning about mental and emotional health due to the patterns of codependency and unhealthy relationships in my family. I love writing and speaking on this topic because it is the one I am most familiar with. The area I have had the most pain in, has also been the area I have experienced the most victory!
 
I would love to be a guest speaker or writer regarding topics on singleness, heartbreak and healthy relationships for your upcoming engagements.
