Oh, Bless’d Broken Me is a poetry and photo collection that highlights the hardships and struggles that contribute to an individual’s realization and understanding of themself. Those hardships can take many forms—lack of identity, unrequited love, judgment from others, destructive selfdoubt. But even in our deepest pitfalls, we have the tools, skills, faith, and guardians to bolster our resolve and to help us heal. The journey to resiliency requires that we recognize not only the struggle, but our capacity to travel our own path through it to the other side. The book’s accompanying landscape photos of Canada help to illustrate a diverse identity.
