    I definitely need to feel a connection with other HSPs. I’m excited that there is a group for Christian HSP women!

  2. It’s encouraging to find out I’m HSP, I’ve explored it all on and off for years, but I’m focusing more now as I’m reading the book sensitive and strong. A new church women’s group I was overwhelmed because it was a large group, but when the women split into smaller groups I calmed down. I am excited to explore more! and how I can learn how to calm down and not think why are the others having fun and I’m overwhelmed and hiding it.
    God bless and keep you all

  3. I feel so relieved.i am starting to get the real me and know that there is nothing wrong with me and that i am a powerful sensitive person who wants to and can help other people.i have a gift from God to help people and the devil is trying to distract me…im very happy i found this community

    Wow – the lie that “I’m alone, completely alone” has been absolutely crippling in my life. Thanks for this post.

  5. I feel so blessed to finally know that I’m not alone in this HSP journey.

  6. I too am often blessed by the words “me too” and believe it equally important to give testimony of how God has been growing me in that!

  7. God bless you for this website & it’s content. I’ve always been called “overly sensitive” and been made fun of and hated it. I’ve always felt like there is something wrong with me that I cry so easily, am overwhelmed easily by too much to do, smells, others emotions, etc. I just think it’s really great that there are others out there like me and I’m hoping to find tips on how to be a better version of me while keeping Christ at the forefront of everything I do!

    This is great. I have so needed this to love myself and others. (I notice we can have different sensory issues.) I need a life do-over. NOT.

  11. I so understand how you did not find Christian women admitting that they are sensitive. We shouldn’t be. We should be strong. And do it all! Not possible for some of us who weren’t raised or trained or made to handle “it” all.

    I see the benefits of community as: support and encouragement, an understanding ear

    And the drawbacks as: tendency to gripe and complain, wallowing in self-pity

    I love that you said not to “fix” each other, but let the Holy Spirit do His job. It reminds me of John 6:68, 69. “Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.” We can come together in community, but ultimately God in all His fullness fixes and saves us.

  12. I agree with Leesa but also wonder if we’d all be just too sensitive, you know, taking things others type the wrong way and getting hurt too easily. I’ve seen this over and over again in the blogosphere. But I still think it would be worth it. I’m in the Hello Mornings program and that’s all women. Sure there have been a time or two some of the women in a group I’ve been in (myself included) have had a problem, but over all it has been a good experience knowing that we have that support and that people are praying for our needs. I think being in a group of Christian women trying to accomplish the same thing while encouraging each other and praying for each other has really helped me to grow and mature in my faith.

  13. There is power in not standing alone but it seems a community such as this could move from encouraging to patronizing or/and not promoting growth. One might feel a lack of need for good change. Just a thought.
