‘Create in me a clean heart, O God…’
Hello there, and welcome to my wee blog.
Pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea.
A L L O W M E T O I N T R O D U C E M Y S E L F
I am a teen writer, dog enthusiast, ever-learning artist, photographer, and college student.
Things that make my soul happy include gigantic roller coasters, listening to Rend Collective, visiting State fairs, snow days, trips to Disney World (for those dying to know, my favorite ride is Splash Mountain!), outings with friends, and hanging out with family.
In my “free time,” you can usually find me puppy-sitting, baking allergy-friendly desserts and cooking meals, listening to music, reading a book (I am not an avid reader, but those rare times I find a book I love, it is not easy to put it down!), caring for my dog, and of course, writing.
More recently, I have begun working with TheRebelution as an assistant editor (of sorts). It has been an amazing opportunity and I have grown to really love this ministry. I remember years ago reading Brett and Alex Harris’ book Do Hard Things. Never in a thousand years would I have thought that a few years later I would be an editor for their ministry! But here I am.
Above all, I am a sinner saved by grace.

Long before I could write, I would curl up next to my mom and narrate my stories to her. Stories of little girls like me and tales of runaway puppies. As I grew older, my style of course sprouted and grew. What were once tales of naughty puppies morphed into my daily little adventures.
On empty journal pages I pen my celebration, my hurt, my joys, and my tears. My favorite journal entries and separate, devotional-like pieces end up here– on this very blog.
My dream is that each blog post will bring you encouragement and hope and ultimately point you to Jesus. I desperately want to shout out to the whole wide world (and remind myself!), ‘You are not alone! There is One who cares!’
And what’s more, every second you breathe, God is creating your heart to be more like His. On these digital pages that make up this blog, let’s learn to see the beauty of who God is making us to be, individually and collectively. Let’s cry out to Him, ‘Create in us clean hearts, O God!’
