For a few very hard years this word was my mantra.
The word means
-undismayed; not discouraged; not forced to abandon purpose or effort
-undiminished in courage or valor; not giving way to fear
But the truth is, I was often dismayed by everything that had taken place, and I did battle discouragement. I battled fear and doubts. I hurt and was angry, and sometimes "undaunted" sounded more like a mockery than a mantra, and I was determined to be real about all of it in these posts, thus the name, Undaunted Reality. More than that, though, I was determined to live undaunted, not because I'm so great or strong, but because my God is, and no matter what this world looks like, He is the only reality that matters.
I pray I live the reality of Him beautifully undaunted.

How Does One Heal? Only One Way--The Healer

"People keep asking me how my children and I have come through everything we went through so well. How are we so okay?

One word : God

I believe it is impossible to be healed without the Healer.
You can try, but scars have no elasticity. They become tight skin with no give. Without true healing, a person can still move through life but will always be bound up by their inability to fully move beyond what hurt them."
--Warrior Undaunted, manuscript in process, Jerri Kelley Phillips
