2011: Trial By Fire

“Amidst my list of blessings infinite, stands this foremost, that my heart has bled…” —Streams in the Desert, October 1 I turned twenty-one in 2011. When I reflect on this year, I am humbled when I remember what our family went through. Like the above quote from Streams in the Desert, our hearts indeed bled profusely that year. From April 2011 to October 2011, there were six life-changing events, of varying degrees. In April, I broke up with my boyfriend, and while God supernaturally protected my heart, it was still emotional and upsetting at the time. In June, my brother’s

A Day in the Life of a Freelance Writer

In honor of Freelance Writer’s Appreciation Week, I thought I would pull the curtain back on a typical week for me as a freelance writer. Working from home requires a lot of discipline. Like a lot. If you want to have a cleaner house, then I recommend working from home, because all of a sudden doing dishes and laundry is way more appealing then sitting down to hard and scary creative work. I’ve been freelancing for four years, and each year has looked different on the writing front, but all my years as a homeschooler have uniquely trained me for such
