Elevator blog

If you were in an elevator with someone and they asked you about your blog, what would you tell them?

My blog is called The Nat Cave because I want to share with you some of my thoughts as musings as I seek to walk out of the Darkness and into the Light.

Several years ago, I lost my husband to suicide after a long battle with bipolar disorder. We didn’t share much about his disorder because we were embarrassed and didn’t want others to think about us differently. I realize now that keeping it in the dark was the worst thing we could do. His death inspired me to reach out to others and to try and eradicate the stigma associated with bipolar disorder. Mental illness is a topic that is often neglected in the church.
