About this blog:
Do you enjoy blogs written by renowned experts in the areas of health and well-being? Good for you! There are plenty of them to choose from.
But this isn’t one of them.
Are you looking for a blog written by someone who has it all figured out?
Yeah, you won’t find that here either. Sorry.
What you will find is exactly what the title and tagline say—a journey. Specifically my journey. My own personal exploration of what whole health looks like and what it encompasses.
I don’t have all the answers. I probably don’t even have all the questions. But I think the topic is important—no, crucial—and I’m a student who’s eager to learn and willing to grow.
If you want to learn and grow alongside me, welcome aboard! We’ll figure it out together.
I became interested in health on a holistic, integrative level when I lost my own following the birth of my second child. Every aspect of my health suffered. I spiraled down into a pit of tenacious postpartum depression. I dealt with intense menstrual discomfort. The episodic migraines I’d had since I was a teenager increased in frequency, intensity, and duration. Spiritually, I struggled to hold on to hope.
All of these things tangled together, and it took addressing all of them to see relief in any of them. Humans are complete beings—body, mind, spirit. If we’re truly journeying toward whole health, it must include all of these areas.
That’s what I want to do here—explore what that might look like. Please read and comment. I welcome discussions and feedback.
My name is Karen. In real life, I’m a Christian, wife, mother, homeschool teacher, writer, and geeky fangirl. I love coffee, chocolate, and books. I enjoy discussing theology. Sometimes I’m a decent cook. I live in Tennessee and am utterly Southern. My grandmother was the original grammar Nazi, so I do know the ins and outs of grammar minutiae. However, I am a master at making stupid typos. Apologies in advance for any you see here.
