Who am I?
I grew up in a small town in northern Indiana and have lived there my entire life. In my childhood years I struggled with who I was and why I existed. Writing was something of a hobby for me in my younger years. It would eventually grow into a very relaxing way for me to get out of my mind for a short while. Having been raised by parents who are Christ followers and regular church attenders, I came to faith as well when I was eight years old. During my entire childhood and up into my teenage years I was home-schooled. My graduating class was as large as my footprints, but that was okay with me. Since graduation from high school I have attended seven years of college at three different universities. Having this vast amount of time in the collegiate realm has given me unique perspectives on the world around me.
What do I do in my free time?
You will scarcely find me waiting around for some big opportunity to come to me. So I tend to seek out adventures. Adventures to me are what make life interesting. They give our lives a new definition and give us new stories to tell. The greatest part about seeking out adventures to me is the unexpected nature of where you might end up. My hobbies of linguistics and growing bonsai trees occupy a good chunk of my time as well. A few things that my hobbies focus around is patience and learning because I always want to be improving, lest I fall behind.
What is the purpose of this blog?
First and foremost, this blog is intended to bring glory to God. There will never be an agenda or cause that I will try to convince my readers is something greater than sliced bread. It would be foolish of me to try to do such things. God gave me a gift for writing about faith, facts and fiction, so I am going to use His gift to me to be a mirror and reflect His glory. I want my readers to take a few minutes out of their day to just forget about the gerbil running around their brain and just sit and ponder what God has for them.
What brought me here?
Some things just cannot be discussed in a healthy fashion on social media. This realm of open thought allows me to express what I feel I should share. Some of the things I discuss may be hard to swallow, but it is my goal to help hand you a glass of water when your throat is dry. I want my writing to refresh your soul and help you see life as the amazingly beautiful thing that it is. Every day should be the best day of your life. Every day should be another day in which you can go on an adventure, say yes to hanging out with an old friend, see a baby smile, hear of something that brings you tears of joy to your eyes and most of all, you should never live another day with regret. Do not simply be someone who hears of great things, be the doer of great things. I hope you enjoy reading my content!
