I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials + sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world. John 16:33 NLT
In life we are going to have trials, we are promised that. In life we will have sorrows, we are promised that, too. But in this life we are also promised peace, we have been charged to take heart--because of One that is greater, One that is purer, One that is stronger--that has overcome.
That's our story.
We have had trials. We have had sorrows. We have known days that we thought would never end + had days we wished would end quickly. We have seen complex + challenging weeks, months, and years. We have been at the very end of our own ropes.
But take heart. I have overcome the world
We also saw victory. We found joy. We chose life. We have known what it means to overcome. We have seen what faithfulness looks like. We can be silent no more. We want to share with you--in hopes that our stories will encourage you + remind you that there is a deep joy to be found, a hope to hold onto, + a peace in the midst of every season of life.
In this world of crazy busy and over-connectedness, we have seen how isolating it can be to walk through hard times + how you can feel like you are the only one that understands--we do not want you to feel that way any longer. So we hope our Kindred community of fellow travelers will encourage you + spur you on in whatever season you are in.
We will be posting a few times monthly with stories from different Kindred members, but we encourage you to fo and read the stories already published to get a glimpse into what we are all about. Our goal is to have a day or two a month that you consider your Blythe + Haven Collective Days + you look forward to reading and being encouraged on those days! We promise, to be honest. To keep things real. And we dedicate ourselves to reminding everyone that in the midst of trials and just plain life--joy and peace can be found in Him!
