Dashing Dish Beauty for Ashes - My Testimony.

It's been a year since my life took a major turn. A rough year full of change, therapy, depression, anxiety and more self-focus than I ever thought I'd be comfortable with. I am so thankful for every last drop of it though. I needed it to happen, I needed to be set free. I've grown and I'm a better person now. Hard times aren't always a bad thing.

A couple of weeks ago I had the honor of sharing my testimony with Dashing Dish readers. I love Katie's recipes and her story, it's so similar to mine. She is the absolute sweetest, and I've found her site to be a huge help over the last year. Dealing with anorexia, hypothalamic amenorrhea, depression & anxiety has been by far the hardest thing I've ever faced. It's a lot more common than you'd think though, and becoming even more so thanks to our current society. Sharing my testimony was important & therapeutic for me. I went through so much, and still struggle for sure, but being in a place where your only choice is to give it to the Lord was life changing in so many ways. I believe we are faced with hard things to make us stronger, strengthen our relationship with the Lord and to help others. I don't know His plans, but I trust in Him.
