”They divorced when I was about halfway through high school because of some serious relationship problems they’d had for years. I admired my dad until I found out about it. At the time, I was angry and hurt and felt in some ways that the divorce was my fault. At points I considered leaving the church. I had thought so highly of my dad that realizing that he was just as screwed up as the rest of the world made me doubt God as our father figure.
Eventually, through my friends’ support, my mom's love, and the encouraging words of Christian vloggers, I came to accept the divorce. I'm still hurting because afterword my dad stopped talking to me for months at a time, and he currently lives in Montana. But I have other people I can look up to and trust.
I started my blog when I started at WWU. I've been using it to tell a bit about my college experience and share tips for surviving college. I hope to start a vlog or social media channel to talk about big issues in the world so people can connect through things they're passionate about. My hope is to be able to connect people with others who can relate to them. I didn't know a lot of people who could relate to the situation of my parents' divorce until I went online.”
