I started my blog the year after moving back to North Carolina from California (2017). Having just left a job in technology, I knew I wanted to do something creative but couldn’t put my finger on what it might be. I spent a year writing and attending conferences tailored toward faith-based writing (devotionals, studies, etc.), but I found myself wanting to write about more than my faith. I took an extensive, reputable career test that winter that matched me with many careers I’d already considered, such as reporting, journalism, marketing, and counseling. However, the #1 match from the test was lifestyle blogger. I was resistant for a while because I had a different impression of the industry than I do now. With time and encouragement from friends and family, my views began to shift. Now, every time I create something for you on the blog, I feel such a rush of joy!
