I write what I know for sure.

I write from my experience.

I write to share.

I write to progress.

I write because–

I must simply obey my heart.


I am a Korean writer living in the States. I hold a master’s degree in Counseling and am passionate about being a catalyst of faith, hope, and revival. I write about immigrant life, the healing journey of recovering from bipolar depression, but mostly, God. This is my tribute to God, my personal testimony of how He is continuing to heal me through His Grace. His Love is simply enough. Although it is a struggle to live out that faith every day. I try as best as I can. With His help. And with Jesus by my side.

    Hi Lilyboat. Just this morning I noticed that your recent comment to my blog has disappeared. I was horrified because I think I must have accidentally erased it. My response to it was there, but I deleted that on purpose because it made no sense without your comment. (Life tends to work that way.) And it was such a lovely comment that I had wanted to thank you for it. I don’t know if you can resend it, and we could begin again. If not, I would like to say thank you for your kind comment here. It was greatly appreciated!

      haha.. you are so sweet. I had no idea it was deleted. 🙂 I tried to repost again as much as I could remember what I said. Thank you for all your posts. I really appreciate them!

    Hi Lily! My name is Elinah and im currently recovering from bipolar 1. Its really nice to have another person who goes through what I go through on a daily basis, even though we are just that bit different. I have a website on wordpress also called iRecover (the title is pretty much self explanatory) and I would love it if you could come over and visit 🙂

    Looking forward to hearing from you 🙂

    Keep Holding On 🙂

      Hi Elinah! Nice to meet you here! I do feel what you are going through. When you are recovering, it could be very tricky and it could really test your patience and faith! We comfort each other, don’t we? 😉

      Keep holding on is right on. Sounds easy, but never. I have no doubt that you can come out of it strong!

    I was diagnosed as manic depressive (my head was full of demons) many years ago. But I knew deep inside that it was a spiritual problem. At the age of 25, my faith in Christ healed me of manic depression. The Lord has also delivered me of many demons. It is great to be healed and delivered! Thank you, Lord!

    My brother has bipolar. Medication and a lot of prayer helps him a lot. With Jesus on your side, you will be able to embrace bipolar. God Bless.

    1. lilyboat says:

      Hello Seeker, what a great name! I pray for your brother and your family. I am seeking for a complete cure, but of course if God allows. You are right, embracing bipolar is possible. When He helps, everything works for good. Thank you for visiting.

    I am in awe of your story, and the eloquence with which you share it. God bless you.

    Keep on keeping on…you and your story are inspiring. Keep writing, keep telling your stories. There are a lot of people out here who care. I once suffered from major depressive disorder and know how lonely that space is. Reconnecting with my Creator – the God of my understanding, rather than the one that so many tried to shove down my throat, who was angry, vengeful, etc. saved my life. God bless YOU as you continue to share your gifts. 😉

    1. lilyboat says:

      Thank you for your thoughtful words. It’s a blessing to know the one true God who has all the answers! We are who we are because of our sufferings and so our sufferings are true gifts from God! God bless you!

    And with God, you do not need yoga. I pray that you will jettison the façade of yoga and just be natural in contemplating God.
