Blessed and Unbreakable

Welcome to my blog Blessed & Unbreakable! This blog just so happens to be my 3rd blog and I hope it will be where I stay! Just to start I’d like to give you a little info about myself. My name is Danielle and along with my hubby and our dog Kujo, we just move to Gastonia, NC. I grew up in a little town called Smyrna, Delaware, where I was a pastor’s daughter of a small church plant. I met my amazing husband Tommy at church camp back in 2010 where it was love at first sight (we just didn’t know it then). In 2013, we tied the knot and for the past 4 years we have lived in Maryland. About a week ago, we moved to North Carolina and we absolutely love it (more on that later)!

Now onto this blog! It has been on my heart for quite some time now that I should share my journey of living with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (Hormonal Imbalance/Infertility), Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bone Disease), and a learning disability. I feel God has blessed me dearly with my life and should not keep it’s blessings to myself.

At 26 years old I am a wife, a friend, a sister, a granddaughter, child of God, slow learner, hard worker, infertile, and brittle boned. For the most part, I am a normal woman who just wants to succeed and enjoy life to it’s fullest. I have overcome and still am overcoming many battles in this life, but I have God to thank for getting me through them. God blessed me with the mind and body that I have and I plan to use my battles to help others. Which comes to the theme of my blog, right from the Bible and my favorite verse:

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.

Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it well.”

Psalms 139:14

For I am fearfully and wonderfully made! For a long time in my life I judged every bit of me, compared myself to others, and put myself down. It took me a long time to truly love my body, my mind, and my soul, but I finally have. If you suffer from PCOS, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, or just life in general I encourage you:

  1. To pray
  2. Join me in my blog!

Please leave a comment or message me! Next on the blog I will be talking about our move (told you I wouldn’t leave you hanging!) and the struggles within it.

Thank you for reading!

    Hi Amie, my son has OI, but the small world we live in is that his cousin, born on exactly the same day, that he is so close to lives in Charlotte. I know Gastonia is not far away! It sounds like you have challenges in your life but your spirit is positive!

      Small world it is! Thank you for your encouragement and I pray that your son is enjoying life every minute like myself! God Bless.

    Hey Danielle, I love your blog! 💕 I never knew that you were struggling with all of this, but God’s obviously brought you through all of it with grace and a good outlook! You and Tommy are in my prayers. Gastonia is very close to Lincolnton, where a bunch of my cousins, and aunt and uncle live (Uncle Dale’s and my mom’s youngest sister) – small world!

    You got this girl!

    I’m so proud of you for keeping up with this blog.
    I’m sure you have touched and inspired people already and I want you to keep it up.

    Writing is definitely therapeutic but nothing can beat being able to share and connect. I might have to start my own parallel blog to yours about my side of things. Kind of like the other side of the same coin. I’m starting to think we’re basically the same person, we just choose different paths on dealing with our issues. As someone who also suffers from PCOS, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, and Mental disorder, it’s comforting to know you are someone I can always go to for understanding. I don’t think we do that enough, but maybe we could team up and conquer the world? haha Or at least help the other people like ourselves and try to encourage positive changes.

    God made us perfectly imperfect.
    Our imperfections are what make us perfect.
