Hello Honest Readers,
As obvious as it is that I, Couri Shepard, am of no important status. You have never heard my name if you live outside of the 30 mile radius of my small town. You are probably wondering why you should care about what I have to say. Honestly, I am not sure you should. I am just a woman approaching 30 who works as a teacher and is married to a pastor of a small church. I have no incredible insight into anything other than my own experiences, and I have opinions that many people are afraid to share. I think that is why I am so intrigued by the idea of sharing my thoughts with anyone willing to take the time to read them. Then again, maybe those aforementioned qualities are why you should care. I'm a normal person, just like you.
My goal with Honest Breakdown is to empower others to share their thoughts and to take a hard, honest look at the world around us. My Youtube channel, which I am currently establishing, bares the same name, Honest Breakdown, and has the same goal. My first video will be releasing March 4th.
During my time writing this blog and creating videos, I will be looking at topics that most people don't want to touch with a ten-foot pole. Racism, politics, grief, etc. I will also be providing my opinion on topics that seem trivial including fads, trends, tiktok, small town living, etc. I will not be giving expert advice or providing you with a new outlook on life. I am just going to give you my perspective on anything and everything that enriches or plagues our world.
As I start this journey of sharing my thoughts, I hope you understand that I will never claim to be the authority on any topic. EVER. I can only speak to what I know and what I know is that my limited experiences are just that, mine. I have no understanding of deep theological debates, like my husband. I have no knowledge of expert counseling techniques, like my mother. I don't even know how to be the best teacher I can be, and that is what I do for a living!
Your honest feedback is what is going to help grow my honest breakdowns. This blog and future Youtube channel are not just about growing me, but growing all of us. With that in mind, what topics are important to you? If you could speak about anything honestly, what would you choose? Let me know in the comments below, so that we can start bringing honesty to the forefront.
