Ash Wednesday 2018

Lent season is upon us, and usually around this time I find something to give up for my 40 days (actually 46). It’s usually alcohol, but this year I’m proud to say that I have already given that up. I have been holding study on my sobriety to, there were days I would get tempted. So far so good, and now I have to think of something else. It will come to me before the day is over, so as we prepare for lent take this time to reflect and pray. Reflect over life, and given up something shouldn’t be that hard as Jesus gave his life for us. Happy Fasting…..

Today is the the start of Lenten season, time to give time to the one who made us and sacrified Himself for us. Ash Wednesday today.

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
