Hi there. Thank you for visiting my little corner of the web.
The title "Learning to Breathe" comes from the title of my favorite song in the world "Learning to Breathe" by Switchfoot, my favorite band in the world (whose other song also inspired the site's URL).
My name is Linda and I started this blog because I love to write and journal and remember and record. I love to write about my walk with God and go back and see all He has done. I've been journaling since I was 12. The blog has a range of topics on Christian living, maturity, marriage, motherhood, and life.
I loved bearing my heart for all to see the works of God in my life.
I loved being able to share that with friends and family, specially because most of my family lives in different countries.
The blog comprises my first years of marriage, our longing for children, our daughters' births, our journey as parents, our struggles and our victories.
My husband's name is Rodolfo and we've been married for six years this July.
We have two beautiful daughters: Emmalee who is three years old, and Kaylee who recently turned two.

As of lately, it's been a place to record my journey with breast cancer. Here is my short version of my cancer story: "I am a 30 year old mother with triple negative breast cancer. We found about the cancer on April 20 and had a mastectomy April 22. I am on my second of eight chemo rounds for four months and later will receive 33 sessions of radiotherapy for six weeks."
It's been a relief to have the blog to do this because that way I don't have to be telling the new news of my cancer over and over again. For some reason, my story has touched many and many are rallying to help me beat cancer. I feel very humbled by this and very grateful.
People have said they are inspired by my writing. To me that is astonishing because I really do mean the blog's title. I am just learning to breathe, specially in this chapter of my life I hope is not the last.
What I love about my writing is that I have always felt is not mine. I go back and read an old post and think: "Did I write that?" and I realize how much is really what the Holy Spirit does within me and Who speaks. It is all His doing and that is my main objective in sharing my life: glorifying Him with every breath I take.

Psalm 150

1 Praise the Lord.
Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord.
