I am a young adult struggling with religious trauma while still holding and wrestling with my relationship with God.
I experienced God when I was eleven years old, but I was raised Catholic before then. The experiences do not fully match up to how I was raised. A God who calls you “beloved” does not match well with a God who invalidates your emotions, or shakes you in any way. God loves you where you are in life: no matter what. No matter how much you struggle in life, God is right there.
I hope to help you, my beautiful readers, grow towards the person you were created to be as sunflowers grow towards the sun.
