I started blogging about 7 years ago. I was young, much younger than I am now. I thought it would be “cool” to have some place to write. So I blogged on and off about this and that. I would blog in spurts and then not blog for longer spurts. I debated deleting my blog for about a year because for a period of time I didn’t like the idea of people knowing my deepest thoughts. And yet, somehow I could never bring myself to click the delete button; to erase the lines and pages that represented very real moments of my life. Moments that I go back and read and cringe with embarrassment at the thought that I posted this for anyone to read. Still, I leave those posts there because they reveal where I was then and where I am now. They remind me that I am a work in progress and that change is inevitable, and more than that, desirable. Blogging has slowly become something that I love, something that connects me with people from such unique places, even people that I’ve yet to meet. It’s become the space where my shame and fear hit the page to unleash a freedom that can only come with bringing truth to light, and with owning the person that I am.
Over the summer I’ve been inspired to keep writing, to keep connecting, and to keep inviting others to share their journey. So welcome to my new space, similar to before and yet just enough different. Here I’ll find space to write about being a twenty-something trying to find my way in the world, trying to love Jesus more, and trying to become just a little bit more comfortable in my own skin. You may see a little of this (thoughts on the church and culture), and a little of that (thoughts on singleness, dating, marriage and celibacy), and you might even see a tiny bit of other stuff (Jesus, theology, relevant issues, creating stuff, photography, etc). And you’re gonna see some posts from some pretty cool guest bloggers too, which I’m pretty stoked about.
So stop by every once in a while and leave me a comment, or just be a silent observer if that’s your thing. I hope you will find some points of connection somewhere in the “this”, and in the “that”, and in the “other stuff” too.
Looking forward to the journey with you.
