I am a down to earth college student in Ohio studying Nursing with a Missions and Cross cultural Minor. I love helping people and learning about the different cultures in this wide expanse of what we call the world.I have traveled since I was 3 months old. My parents were missionaries till I was 12. We then moved back to the states. I started this blog, kind of on a whim. It seemed like a good way to organize my thoughts and practice my writing skills. I don’t pretend to be a good writer. I simply want to share my stories and the stories of the people that I meet on my journey through life.
I am an avid reader and have always enjoyed escaping life and journeying to new places though the books I read. This may be where my sense of adventure came from. I learned that stories make up life. This is probably why I love traveling so much also. Both reading and traveling take you places you never thought you would go. They also both contain stories. Stories have always held some sort of hold on me. They hold such romance, intrigue, passion, mystery, and life. Stories are what make up culture, and culture defines people. People are interesting and each have their own unique story. We all have stories that define who we are. These stories are happy, sad, romantic, crazy, miraculous and everything in-between. Traveling and reading opens the door for you to discover other peoples stories as well as figure out your own stories.
The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.
This quote shows that everyone’s story is unique and awesome in its own way. I want to share my passion for stories and people with you. My story is different that yours. My story stems from the realization that I am the incandescently beautiful daughter of the One True God. My identity is not in this world, but in the fact that I am loved. There is freedom in love. This journey of life allows me to discover what it means to be free and a daughter of the King.
“He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”
