Meet Aimee…

After the birth of my second daughter in 2003, I experienced Post-partum Depression with Psychosis.  The shame and stigma I felt caused me to want to hide and withdraw. I prayed fervently for complete healing and believed in God’s power to do so. However, each time I went off the meds, I ended up in the hospital.

It took a severe psychotic break in 2013 to wake me up and realize not only was I in denial, but maybe God had different plans for me. Healing could include medication, at least on this side of heaven. I began to thirst for God’s Word and found joy and life despite my disease.

Consider it pure joy, my brothers when you face trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4

I am married to my amazing husband, Mark, of 20 years and have three daughters.  I attended Purdue University and have a B.A. in Writing and Communications.

When I’m not parked in front of the computer writing, you’ll catch me cooking gluten free or napping on my back porch. This collection of posts shares the truth I have found in Christ, a truth that never changes.  My hope is that through reading this blog, the labels and lies will fade and instead, you’ll find yourself defined by who God says you are.

      I read your recent blog, “The Sun Will Shine Again” and it is so beautiful. A true reflection of your soul, wisdom and love of the Lord. I will look forward to more be reflections. As we all mourn Jill’s passing, we need to remember that God is with us on this journey and the sun WILL rise again and Jill is at peace in God’s arms.

    I am so glad to find what you have written. I don’t understand why mental illness is so shame produceing. The fear of being discovered and rejected as broken is so real and deep. Thank you for your message. I will be following your blog and I appreciate your courage.
