Journal

Real. Raw. Revealing.

The Journal is a window into our world. A place to ponder and practice what we learn together on the path to hope, healing, and abundant life. A collection of voices sharing stories of life together in an Unbridled community. Not always clean and tidy, but it’s home…and the safest place we know for learning to be real…on our way to becoming whole…so we can partner with God to do the same for others.
