These resources have been tremendously comforting to me on my own healing journey. I share them here in hopes that they are for you, too. 

Poems and prayers



  • Saint Therese: “She said, ‘May today there be peace within. May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be. May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others. May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you. May you be content with yourself just the way you are. Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise, and love. It is there for each and every one of us.’”
  • Teresa of Avila: “Courage, courage, my daughters. Remember, God gives no one more troubles than she is able to bear, and God is with those who are in tribulation.”
  • Julian of Norwich: “All will be well, and all will be well, and every kind of thing shall be well.” 
  • Dallas Willard: “Transformation is actually carried out in our real life, where we dwell with God and our neighbors… First, we must accept the circumstances we constantly find ourselves in as a place of God’s kingdom and blessing. God has yet to bless anyone except where they actually are.”
