Transform Pain into Purpose, one Journal Entry at a Time, Artist-Inspired.

The Love Story is a faith-based expressive writing program designed to help you act out and write out the journey of transforming your life tragedy into a divine comedy in seven acts.
As Journal-Artists, we journal our trauma into fictional drama because we believe the truth will set us free, one journal entry at a time, artist-inspired. In story, we illuminate shadows so we may transform pain into passion. We discern our shadows to reveal a better pathway for ourselves. We integrate our shadows to pursue our true purpose
Reveal, feel, and heal.

“I want to go back and explore. Why did it happen when it happened. …Women often suppress their emotions…we think, ‘if I just swallowed that back, it’ll go away,’ and it’s like ‘Nope! Still here.’ and so I think I’m starting to really figure, I can’t swallow that back. I need to let things out.”
