Hi friends and welcome to the Arise, Beloved blog. We have an amazing team of writers behind this blog and our desire is to speak truth into the lies that cripple us and shine light into the darkness that isolates us because we believe that now, more than ever, the Church desperately needs women to be restored so that the world can be set ablaze. Our hope is that you find comfort, solace, and peace in knowing that you are not alone, you are not too far gone and there is ALWAYS hope to be found. 

Learning to See the Gift

  1. Hi Megan!

    Thank you so much for sharing your story. It really touched my heart.
    I’ve struggled with comparison so much throughout my life. I would compare myself to the other dancers in my studio, and when I went to college, I compared myself to the other girls at the Newman Center. I love how you brought up the joy of Mary and Elizabeth during the Visitation! That’s something that helped me get over comparing myself! I learned to rejoice in who I am and who my sisters are without comparing. After I found beauty in our differences, I was so much happier and I was able to recognize the unique ways that the Lord made us. I really loved this post! Thank you again for sharing 🙂

      Beauty in our differences!!! I love that!
      Thank you so much for reading and sharing your story as well! I was a dancer too, you’re right, it was so easy to get wrapped up in comparison in that world!
      Mary and Elizabeth are my favorite companions. I’ll be praying for you Madeline, for the continued grace to rejoice in who you are!
