Who We Are

Welcome to Confessions.

What is our purpose?

-To bring hope to the hopeless through the Gospel of Jesus. We strive to reach those battling through mental illnesses, primarily depression and anxiety disorders, by a personal and honest approach. We also aim to raise awareness of all mental illnesses and to educate our world on the effects of such diseases.

What is our core belief?

-We believe that God, the creator of the universe and the deity of the Holy Bible, has created every single human soul in His image. Our sin distorts that image and separates us from Him. Because of this, God sent His only son, Jesus, to be sacrificed on a cross for our sake so that we could choose eternal life. We believe that three days after His death, Jesus rose from the grave effectively conquering sin, death, and hell. It is by this death and resurrection that we have access to the God of creation and by which we can be saved.

What is our vision?

-To see the world come to a saving knowledge of Jesus, primarily. Secondarily, we wish to “bring light to that which is hidden.” The world of mental illnesses can be an incredibly dark environment where loneliness and sorrow are abundant. In order to be an effective help, we strive to be honest, to be hopeful, and to bring glory to God through our sufferings and yours.


Our hope is that, by reading the articles posted here, talking with our community, and by interacting with us, you will see and taste a hope that is uncommon. Honesty is our policy. Far too often we believe the lie that we are alone. Our passion is to help individuals see others who are like them and Carpe Noctem, or “Seize the Night.”

Once again, Welcome to Confessions. We’re glad you’re here.

You are loved.

You are valued.

  1. You blog interests me. Specifically the spiritual aspect. I’ve reached a point in my life where I find I am being directed to find a ‘higher power’ in my life. Raised a christian, and no longer a participant, I have some baggage in that department. But coming across your blog has made it clear to me I need to begin my search. So thank you for reaching out to me to contribute a small something to your Finding Who We Are. It has set in motion a significant search for change in my life
