Eric Mansfield

I have firsthand knowledge

of what it feels like to fail.

I’ve had everything in my hands and blew it royally, just like Moses. I have shared a darkened room with Jacob, and I’ve felt the sting of losing everything that mattered. The woman at the well and I have cried long nights and endured longer days of unanswerable questions.

Like Abraham, I have wrestled with my failures and wondered when I would get it right. The shame that the woman caught in adultery felt, I have believed and thought I deserved. I know intimately the embarrassment of carelessness because I made a dumb, foolish decision like the son who left his father.

Throughout the shame, the pain, the humiliation, the embarrassment, and the guilt, I have come to know a few things: we have a Savior who redeems, a Holy Spirit who guides, and a Father who loves.

It is my greatest hope that this site will become a community where people can come and find others just like them. People who have failed and gotten back up. Overcomers who still walk with a limp. People who have scars, but their scars have given them strength and a clearer purpose. The goal is for you to leave better than when you came. I hope you will come away from this site forgiving yourself for something God has already forgotten about.
