My full name is Tabitha Sarah Bigbee-Highland and I'm 36 years old. I am married to an amazing man named Brandon, we live in the mountains outside Los Angeles, and we are the proud/exasperated parents of a sweet dog named Thora.
I'm a fellow human who has struggled with failure, disappointment, and lies of the enemy. I'm a fellow believer who has struggled with misunderstandings and hurts about faith and church. But through all these things I have been loved by my Creator and His promises are the truth I live by today!
I am a ballet dancer and teacher. Ballet is an incredible story of God's plans and blessings for my life! It is my gift and my passion. I love pink, I can't decide if I drink too much or not enough coffee, I love travel adventures, and I am a terrible baker. I identify with Type 7 on the Enneagram and as an ENFP a la Myers' Briggs.
I was homeschooled for 9.5 years by a mom who grew an organic garden, baked homemade bread, and believed in non-toxic products all before it was cool. I’ve had many varied jobs from trail guide through the wilds of Canada to a manager at a wedding dress store. I was diagnosed with a debilitating auto-immune disease when I was 24, but through the promises of God and holistic healing, I was healthy by the time I was 30. Once, I drove a teeny hatchback 10,000 miles from England to Mongolia with a team of 5 women as part of the 2016 Mongol Rally.
I felt lost for most of my 20’s. I battled border-line anorexia starting in high school. I’ve allowed myself to be used in an attempt to feel loved. I fight the fight against joy-stealing perfectionism. In the past, I have chosen momentary fun over my need to grieve which resulted in self-destructive behavior. I continually discover and confront fears that hold me back from living in fully as who God created me to be. I continually deepen my understanding of the world through Christ rather than through self.
