I once met a precious 20-something woman. She has a relationship with God, two adorable little girls, a handsome husband, a good church family, and …. a past that read like a good storyline for a made for TV movie.

If you have a checkered sexual past it can be humbling and scary to talk about it with your spouse or future spouse. No one wants to share intimate details about their life that are painful or paint them as less than perfect, especially with someone who may have had a pain and drama-free past. […]
It wasn’t until my mid-twenties that I realized I needed help overcoming the past. I had fooled myself into believing the absence of my father, the death of my grandfather, and the break-up with my only high school boyfriend had no effect on my life.

We’ve broken in our new rig with a consecutive eight-week run at our seasonal campsite and we’ve begun purging stuff by selling, trashing and donating stuff.
