Welcome to the story of a twenty something. (Yes, I’m a Millennial and I’m okay with that now.) Sometimes it’s a little scary. Haphazard. Unpredictable. Exhausting. Nerve-wracking. Exciting. Who knows! And sometimes I just have to choose laughter over tears.
But mostly, it’s awesome.
I graduated from Clarks Summit University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s in Counseling…but when I graduated I realized I wasn’t as well-suited for professional counseling as I was for writing. So I went back to school for an M.A. in English. I graduated from the University of Michigan in 2015. Go Blue!
Now I’m the Online Managing Editor at Shattered Media and I also have freelance projects going here and there, including ghostwriting, editing, and shorter articles for various publications (like Shattered Magazine, Christianity Today’s Today’s Christian Woman). And I’m a contributor for Moody Publishers’ Start Marriage Right, and NYC Collective Louder Kyd.
As for the road ahead…well…that’s the exciting part, I guess! I’m not sure what God is up to, and admittedly, I’m not much of an adventurer. But I keep telling myself that whatever it is, if it’s God’s idea, it’s probably (okay, definitely) better than mine. So I’ll just keep following His lead, knocking on doors, walking through the ones that are open, and not trying to bust down the ones that aren’t.
Along the way, I’m learning the unforced rhythms of grace, and it’s a beautifully messy journey. I’m still in the middle of my story, but you’re more than welcome to read along. It will take some grace on your part and mine, but in the end, we’ll zoom out and see the mosaic of all our stories—all part of one really great one.
Because Jesus is the Master Storyteller.
