The short version of my story includes coming to know God as a fifteen-year-old girl through reading Christian fiction. It includes my journey of learning to trust God at an early age. Of moving across the country to attend college. Of receiving the most enormous call on my life to tell my story by God. Of walking through a season of brokenness. Of experiencing the worst suffering of my life and finding joy in the bleakest moments. Of dealing with losing my mom at eleven months old in a terrorist attack and how that has affected everything about my life today. Of facing a life of chronic illness and living with autoimmune disease. Of God’s magnificent healing. Of seeing fruit grow in a barren land. Of beauty, tremendous beauty, in every moment of life.

For a brief overview of who I am (or as close to brief as a lover of words can provide) read these posts to understand a little more about my journey and
