About Me

My photo
Anacortes, Washington, United States
This is my testimony - my testimony of faith and lack thereof; of the rising and falling of hopes and dreams; of beliefs and disbelief's; of tremendous heartache and human folly; of reaching out and stepping out when all I want at times is to is pull back and step away. At the age of 30 I was diagnosed with a very rare neurological condition called Post-traumatic Syringomyelia (PTS). Please visit my post on PTS. One of my goals is to increase awareness of this terminal condition. Broken to Grace is not yet released. Follow this blog to receive an email when the final release date is announced. God bless, Ronda

Spread your Wings ~

"If you wish to see the true heart of a person, expose your own heart first. Spread your wings before a friend; reciprocation is nearly instinctual. If the air has grown still and stagnant with a loved one, open your wings to refresh the flow. Our hearts long to open up and soar - but sometimes we are awaiting permission. Be brave, grant it."

Joy ~ internal & eternal.

You notice joy when it's awakened by something
 or someone that reflects what is already in your soul. Realize it is not the thing itself, or the person, that contains the joy. Therefore when the thing is no longer before you joy remains. Your job is to continue noticing it. Joy is cradled in your soul; give it the attention it desires and it will grow stronger despite what is or isn't before you.

-Ronda Rae Franklin

The Lord of Love

Boundaries are everywhere. Brokenness is all around. Sadness engulfs many hearts. Depression controls the minds of millions.
The Lord of love, who is love, conquers all of these. I choose to live without boundaries. I choose to live with a joy that cannot be shaken from me by this world. -Ronda Rae Franklin

NEW: My radio interview on PWRN "Mastering the Art of Becoming" with Marcy Neumann. Live all week.

PWRN radio 2011/06/20 - "Mastering the Art of Becoming": Episode "Broken to Grace" http://pwrnradio.com/blog/2011/06/20/mastering-the-art-of-becoming-17-broken-to-grace/

I was interviewed last week on a 60-minute radio program called "Mastering the Art of Becoming", hosted by Marcy Neumann. It is live all week and can also be listened to streaming on line at the link above. Please, if you listen and it moves you - share this link wherever you can. The station is PWRN, Positive World Radio Network. 
I really hope you enjoy this. If you decide to set time aside to listen - understand this is a 60-minute program. Sit back, relax, and listen. 
I listened to it for the first time on Monday when it was first aired. When we did the interview last week, I had no previous knowledge of the direction of the interview or what the host, Marcy, would ask of me. It was definitely off the cuff - but that is what makes it so real and raw - and if you've gotten to know me at all you know those two qualities are important to me. 
I hope this helps some of you understand a bit more about my life, my book, and your life. 
God bless and with love~
