if you're feeling scared

If there is one thing I have had to wrestle to the ground over and over again it is fear.

When I was a little girl I couldn't fall asleep with the lights off. I was afraid of the dark.  I used a nightlight until an embarrassingly old age.

Growing up I feared death, failure, rejection, and the list goes on.  As a mother, new fears surfaced related to my children.  And when our daughter, Lucy, was diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases I came face to face with countless things that scared me to death.  These days just turning on the news can send me into a panic attack.  How about you?  What fears have you faced?

Our Type ONEderland journey has solidified something for me - scared can lead to sacred if I put my fears in the right place.  The situations that give me crazy nervous butterflies in my stomach can also be the ones that lead me to a deeper, calmer place of peace.  Isn't that something?

Fear is one of many subjects I tackle in my new ebook Type ONEderland.  If you could use a friendly voice to guide you through your own scary seasons I would love to be that for you.  You can grab a copy of the book on Amazon today!  Big, warm hugs to ALL of you who have already purchased the book!!  Not only are you supporting efforts to find a cure for Type 1 Diabetes, but you are also supporting our family on this journey.  The more the merrier
