pain, love, & purpose
a collection of poems
about the moments that define us
“This book of poetry is about the moments, people, emotions, and stories that make us who we are. This book is about how pain leads us to purpose, and how we can turn our mess into our message. It’s a story of heartbreak, grief, doubt, fear, insecurity, and sadness. It’s also a story of love, passion, exploration, curiosity, growth, evolution, transformation, and purpose. It’s a story about growing up, finding yourself, and loving yourself. It’s a story about the power of emotion. It’s the story of my heart’s journey. “
– Christina Rice

about the book
This collection of poetry details the relationships, emotions, and experiences that have been part of my own journey turning pain into purpose. While we might not all have the same exact experiences, shared emotions help us connect with each other, and sometimes that connection point is exactly what we need to shift our perspective and grow from our experiences rather than let fear or pain hold us back. These poems represent the full spectrum of emotions — feeling it all, surrendering to our truth, and letting it guide the way to love. Sometimes pain creates the path to feeling the love we’ve always desired and connecting with our true purpose. If you’ve ever felt alone, misunderstood, or craving more in life, these poems are for you. This is a book about feeling and healing. This book is about transmuting painful emotions and experiences, and allowing them to lead us to deeper love and greater purpose.
The book contains 143 poems separated into three sections – pain, love, and purpose.
The poems in each section walk you through a story of experiences related to that category.
Read the entire book as the story that it is, taking part in the journey of evolution, or head to whatever category your heart needs most at that time.
If your heart has ever cracked open, this is for you.

From Pain to Purpose
Why do so many people feel disconnected from their purpose? Maybe it’s because we’ve been trained to disconnect from our emotions. We’ve been taught–don’t be too much, don’t ask for too much, don’t fall too fast, don’t let people see you cry, don’t put all your eggs in one basket, don’t complain, don’t be dramatic.
Where has that left us? Unintentionally numb, telling ourselves not to feel the way we really feel, and disconnected from the most reliable source of intuition–our sense of feeling.
We’re here to feel. And when we feel, we finally heal. When we heal, we remember our purpose.
