I am excited to introduce you to a series that begins seven weeks ago and  continues through next week with three of my incredible friends. Below is the introduction for the series that has been taking the place of my Vlog “Lessons from the Lake.”   Next week, I will round out the series and have a new video  on the topic as well.  If this is your first time here, check out the video below, and then scroll down to start reading  my friend Patti Krank’s post.


Together we will share insight, challenges, and our faith through our journeys of perseverance. Please join myself, Mary GeisenHolly Barrett, and Patricia Krank as we learn from each other and share encouragement with our own stories of perseverance.

[Tweet “Come join @MyOldThingsNew, @HollySBarrett, @MaryGeisen and me for part 7 in our series on perseverance.”]

Today my friend Patti will be sharing what it looks like to persevere through the pain and to walk in Freedom.  As you begin to read Patti’s post below, I know you will find yourself bobbin your head in agreement, and say yes, me too.  Yes, I have hurts and wounds. Some from childhood, but I am having a hard time overcoming.  My story, and your story may not be exactly the same as hers, but her wisdom and transparency combined with the truth she shares will help you get on the road to FREEDOM!  I know as you read her post you will be blessed and give some tools to walk in the freedom Jesus paid for on calvary and that He so desperately wants us to all walk in.


Persevering Through Pain to Freedom

by Patti Krank

Many of us have events in our pasts that have wounded us deeply, the most lingering of which tend to stem from childhood. As much as we try to overcome it, the pain never quite leaves us. We see others, especially those in Christian circles, walking through life with joy and victory. We try to be positive and live that way too, but there’s “this thing” that we can’t quite seem to shake. Maybe it’s a quick temper, perhaps it’s anxiety that we can’t shut down, maybe it’s a critical spirit that finds the negative in everything, or an overreaction to little things, and we don’t know why.
