Confronting The Cover-Up

My insecurities did not start in my 30’s or even my 40’s. It began when I was about 5 years old. As far back as I can remember, I see myself as that little girl who was supposed to be seen but not heard. It wasn’t that my parents said that to me, but at some point I put that persona on and allowed it to stay on for many years. My high school years were very difficult for me. I never seemed to feel comfortable in my own skin. And that traveled on through my 20’s, 30’s and even early 40’s. Until I began this journey on the RUNWAY that I call life of allowing the real Karin to stand up and raise her voice.

It has not been an easy journey, because sometimes the most difficult thing is exposing you to you. But the beautiful thing that I found in this journey of confronting the cover up is that you don’t have to do it alone. The Lord has so beautifully graced us with the gift of the Holy Spirit, Who will guide you and lead you down the Runway of Life to be free from every stigma, insecurities, inferiority, masks, unworthiness, feelings of abandonment and every other name and title that is contrary to who God so divinely designed you to be. This blog is birthed out of my journey on the RUNWAY that I call life. Believing that as I share the revelation, wisdom and guidance given to me by the Holy Spirit you too will be able to stand up in your spiritual stilettos walking freely, securely and assuredly on the foundation of God’s word.

Welcome To The Runway Report

“The runways are filled with men and women that have hired stylists to dress them so that they can feel beautiful on the outside, neglecting to focus on the inside and deal with the very issues that are weighing them down. We can go from one tabloid to another and see men and women who make millions and millions of dollars. They have sufficient money to eat at the best restaurants, sleep in the most exclusive hotels, travel the world, dress in the best clothes, wear the nicest shoes and hire the best and most well-known make-up artists and hairstylists. They walk the red carpet with their heads lifted high waiting for the next reporter to ask them “Who are you wearing?”, while on the inside many of them are hurting, broken, discouraged, troubled, saddened, lonely, busted and disgusted in despair, as life continues to hit them with its best shot on every turn.”
