I am Jamie Moore and I am first and foremost a child of God, an Heir
to the Kingdom, and a Lover of Christ. I will use this format to tell of
Christ and his love, but, also as a place to give help, love, and support to
those who suffer with mental illness. I have PTSD, OCD, Anxiety, Depression,
and I am bipolar. My desire is to help end the stigma of and to educate those unfamiliar with
Mental Illness. Please know I am here for you and I will do my best to support
and lend a shoulder whenever needed.
those who see my blog to know that it is possible to be a survivor and overcomer.
It was not easy and I went through a lot of different things, but I know that I
made it by the Grace of God and his Love. I believe that Jesus Christ the
Messiah is a key player in my mental illness. He keeps me from harm, self or
otherwise. Mental Illness is a real and serious thing. I know that I have come
through all I have because of Jesus always having his hand on me. God has a
plan and his Son keeps me.
My life has been riddled with abuse. I know what it is to be abused in
every way possible. My abuse began at the age of 7 when I was first
sexually abused by a family member and it seemed to snowball from there. Then
growing up in a home where I was physically, mentally, and emotionally abused.
I was picked on and bullied in school, raped, and then seduced at 17 by a
28-year-old and lived a marriage where the abuse continued. Now I must say that
from my marriage came 2 beautiful children and 2 gorgeous grandchildren. I
guess I went through all I did because I had been told and believed that It was
what I deserved and that was all life was for me. Now let me say I gave my life
to Christ at a young age, but you might ask then, how do you think Jesus kept
you? Well, I think that all I went through God allowed because he needed
someone strong enough to first withstand it and then someone who would learn
from it and ultimately use those things to help others.
Was it fair? NO. Was it right? NO. Was it necessary? YES. God
was molding and prepping me for the life I now have and the path I am fixing to
I was a nervous little girl who took nerve pills, because she
threw up every morning before school. I was a teenager who kept to herself and
didn’t socialize. In all this the one constant was my faith in God and the
foundation I was on to go forward. I thank God for my grandparents who took me
to church and helped lay my foundation. My parents didn’t go to church, so I sought
out a church to go to on my own. I knew that one day my life would make sense
and that God would reveal his plan, but I had to keep going. I eventually was
diagnosed with several mental disorders and started on the road to recovery. I
still deal with things and have days where I am depressed or anxious, but I
know God has my back.
Now I start the next chapter of my life. I am beginning this
blog, researching ways to start a community outreach, and offer my love,
support and understanding to others who are on the path that I have already
walked. I want to be the Jesus that people need to see and know so that they
too can come to understand and feel their worth and faith. How is this going to
work, well I am not sure, but I know that God is the pilot and am I going where
I am signing off and will return soon. I am not sure how I will format my blog, but I will be only an email away. My contact info is above under Contact. Please let me know your opinion and suggestions.
With all of God’s Blessing,
