A note from the author: I wrote this book in hopes of opening up conversation around challenges in relationships, sexuality, religion, and cancer. I wrote it to help people feel validated, seen, challenged, and heard. I wrote it because I knew nothing about what these situations really felt like until they happened to me, despite knowing that they were happening all around me. Still, nobody was talking about them. I wrote it because I wish I had read it years ago. I wrote it in hopes that somewhere within its pages, people would see a glimpse of themselves and feel less alone and less afraid. You will see your mother, your sister, your daughter, and your friends through the vulnerability in these pages. Reading this book feels like you are watching a movie unfold. It is raw and unfiltered- leaving you laughing, crying, celebrating big love, and celebrating the expanse of the human experience.

God taught me many lessons while I lived in Mozambique. It is not easy to leave our comforts, and take the risky step of faith into something we are not familiar with. But as you will see in this book, God will be with you every step, and will use you to do things you never imagined. When you look back one day, you will see that following God was the best step you could have taken!
