I am Chante Brantley. 

Writing in my journal about my life changing experiences opened up a platform for me to not just vent but to heal.  As I wrote in my quiet place with a confessed heart about my life trials whether it was involving a failed marriage or relationship or betrayal by people close to me, I gained peace and spiritual revelations and the ability to release the shame and guilt I felt for being in my predicament.  Forgiveness was in the overall theme; first forgiving myself and then others.  It is these insights that inspired me to write this blog to share my stories with you.  I hope my lessons learned and practical tips encourage and inspire you to look at your situation with better eyes while making room for the next best chapter in your life. 

Chante is a professor and attorney in Texas.
