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.

There are times in our lives we can find ourselves caught in the “in-between.” I wrote a blog post about this last year. I find myself back in this place, sandwiched in between the appointed time and the wait. Much has been walked out on my path of the wait but as I...

Have you ever watched a movie you've seen before, but this time, new information stands out? This happens to me all the time, and do you know why? It's not like the movie is any different. It wasn't added to or altered in any way. The director didn't take it out 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.
