  • I Must Be In Heaven; Knotholes in The Windowsill

    by Valerie Anne Faulkner

    Noticing a knothole in the windowsill that hadn't been filled in, I thought to myself, how ironic...imperfections in nature? But how beautiful! A reminder that God is near, everywhere, and in everything. Even if we ever considered ourselves unworthy, or not good enough, we all are perfectly-imperfect and truly amazing because of it.

    by JT Lawrence
    "Hilarious & Heartbreaking" ✮✮✮✮✮ Will there be light at the end of the birth canal? Does the word ‘endometriosis’ make you want to stick a fork in your eye? No? Then perhaps this book isn’t for you. It’s funny, and (sometimes alarmingly) frank. It contains an impressive array of synonyms for ‘vagina’ and it’s certainly NSFW. It’s about having a devil womb and a hot knife lodged in a shoulder. It’s about becoming blackly bitter and twisted in infertility, and then slowly finding a wa... more
