It’s a new year. Apart from the obvious cliché, it is a great opportunity to begin fresh. Start new. Adopt change. Part of that change is my blog.
I have so much that I want to write about and for a while now, I have been kind of bored with Dispelled. I felt boxed in and I hate feeling that way. I want to have the freedom to write about anything that I am thinking about and changing the look and name is, for me, an amazing chance to do something exciting, fresh and purposeful.
So, why Naked Wildflowers?
A wise woman once said to me, “Chandra, when you come out of the movement, it feels like you are running naked in a field of wildflowers. It is amazing. But about halfway through the field you realize that you are naked. That’s when you look around and start to decide what clothes are absolutely necessary, what you need and what you don’t.”
I want to write about shredding shame and being clothed in grace. I want to write about throwing off those things that hinder. I want to write about the lack of support in churches for survivors of abuse. I want to write about any educational issues that need addressing, especially as they relate to the legalistic homeschooling community and the need for better laws and regulations so these precious kids aren’t hurt. And I want the freedom to write about anything and not feel boxed in. My book is still in progress, but I just needed to change my voice in the wireless world. Comments will now be opened.
And there is another less serious reason for the title. It completely plays to my newly reinvented hippie self.
I hope you come along with me as I try something new. My hope is that NakedWildflowers will remind you to not cloak yourself in shame, but in the liberty that comes from Christ.
