There’s always been something about “About Me” sections that terrify and bother me. There you are, lain bare for the world to see. You can present yourself whatever way you want, because sometimes that’s all someone sees. So here, you’ll see the facts put out there, with no embellishment or half-truths. Just plain o’me.
At twenty, growing up still scares me to death. There are many days, increasing in number every year, where I feel like the five-year-old coloring pictures with my mom before afternoon kindergarten eating nachos and watching The Little House on the Prairie. Where did the five-year-old go? Who knows?
I’m a musician. I believe that music has a power that nothing else on earth has – a power to speak and heal and fill people with hope. I believe music is a God-given gift to us, and will use it to glorify Him always.
I’m an aspiring writer. Have been since I was twelve. All those little projects will pile up eventually and form something cohesive. I hope.
I’m an adventurer. I’d love to take a summer off and see the world with friends and family and just be in the world. I want to hike a mountain and read my Bible at the summit. I want to eat foreign food until I crave cheeseburgers and fries. I want to travel so much that I become a traveler instead of a tourist.
If there’s one thing that glues me together, it’s the Lord. I know that’s a cliche thing to say, but it really is true. Throughout my entire life, He has been there to pick up the broken pieces of my life and put them back together. I have learned so much from Him in my twenty years, but I know I still have a lot to learn. Every day is a new journey – no two days with Him are the same, and that’s exciting! It’s exciting to wake up in the morning and know that I have Someone who is on my team all the time, even when I’m being a stinker or being stubbornly set in my ways. He is patient and loving, and the perfect Father.
I truly am living the beautiful life.
