Welcome to the New Life in Slow Motion Website

Welcome to my new and updated website!

Over the past few months I have been going back and forth about my blog. Posts have been scarce because I struggled to decide what I wanted to write about and how to move forward.

I almost left Life in Slow Motion all together. I almost set out on a new venture and put this blog to the side. I went as far as buying a new domain name, creating a new website, and setting a launch date for my new site.

In the end, I just couldn’t do it. It didn’t feel right.

In the end, I realized that I had more to say and that I have grown to love this little community of people I interact with around my blog. I wasn’t ready to lose that, and I realized that anything I wanted to do on any potential new website I could do right here, with all of you, without starting from scratch.

So, here’s what you can expect moving forward…

  • I will be placing a lot of emphasis on the small groups that I am starting. Community and support are so important when you have chronic pain, but hard to find when you can’t leave the house often. I hope you will consider joining one.
  • I may end up writing about a more diverse array of topics. Honestly, I’m not sure. I just plan to write about whatever I want to write about, regardless of whether it fits into any “brand” or specific topic. That’s the way my blog always has been, and I think I became a little over concerned that it needed a specific direction. But that is never what this blog has been about, so I will just write as I desire to write and stop worrying about whether it is the “right” topic.
  • I will slowly but surely begin publishing a series of small ebooks. For so many reasons, I decided that the book I wrote last year would work better if it were chopped into a series of topics. The series will be entitled Chronic Pain and the Christian Life and will address various topics such as work and service when you have chronic pain, dealing with the losses of chronic pain, what to do with all the shame and guilt, how to communicate pain to others, and so much more.
  • A quarterly newsletter will be replacing my monthly newsletter, which I struggled to keep up with. You can expect to find special announcements, exclusive offers, and helpful resources. Sign up in the little pop-up screen.

I hope you will take some time to browse around my new site and let me know what you think. Along with the new look, all of the pages have been changed and updated. Thank to all of you who stick around! I hope to be here more regularly in the near future.

  1. Hi Esther! Sorry I’ve fallen behind ­O_O Hubby and I are dealing with very tough decisions that need to be taken now or my health condition will definitely get worse, very fast. So yeah, been busy dealing with that and could not keep up with it all.

    So when I just saw the title I was afraid I’d miss something. But was so glad you are keeping this blog going after all 😀 I had to re-read when I saw you ‘almost’ left it behind to make sure it did not say you did. Phew! Excited where this is going, and sure, talk about whatever you want 😀 Heck, we have enough restrictions as is. I respect you highly as a writer and like to read what you have to say about many different subjects.

    I really agree about how small communities are important. I see large Facebook communities and my head starts spinning. @_@ The visualization group really brought me something special I’d been seeking for a while, so thanks for that. I made two good friends I can chat with.

    Much love and gentle hugs to you. Great job!!!

    1. Thanks for all of your support! I am sorry you and your husband have been dealing with those touch decisions. I hope that you find the wisdom you need to decide how to move forward.

  2. Love it! Keep up the great work. I think you’re onto something that is so needed in the chronic pain community. Excited to share in the journey and learn from one another. 😊
