About Me

"I'm afraid my body won't be able to keep up with my ambitions."
- unknown

Hi, I'm Stephanie.

I'm a twenty-something writer, journalist, and author of the book Reaching Home. 

The most important thing I've learned from this blog is that I am ever changing and ever growing. 
These pages are an outlet for my growing up and even though they sometimes might look a little crayon-scribbled and coffee stained, God will always been here in these words working through me.

Writing means a lot to me. Putting words together helps me to process things. It helps me to love better, to grieve better, and sometimes to change the world.  I am ambitious, among other things--creative, heavy, happy, tired. In 2012, I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease, so sometimes my ambition scares me because I can't always keep up with it. Sometimes there's no energy left for ambitions. Lyme has changed me in ways I never would have imagined. In recent years, I've been getting better and that's changed me too.  I have a beautiful life and am often overwhelmed by how many people are in it who love me. They make the days worth living. Life is beautiful and I am grateful for it. 

I am always looking to make new friends, so leave a comment, send an email, or sing into the void, I'd love to get to know you. <3


  1. You are beautiful. And it seems like we have a few things in common:) Thank you for being a reader and leaving sweet comments on my blog!


    1. Aw, thank you, Raquel! <3 It does seem like we have a few things in common! I haven't had the opportunity to read a huge amount of your blog, but I love what I've read. You have a very sweet spirit, and lovely, encouraging writing! Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I just stumbled across your blog today - so cute and inspirational! I'm an eighteen year old fiction writer, too. Were you perhaps homeschooled? I come from a homeschool family but I'm now a student at Wheaton College. :)

    Keep on writing and shining for the King of Kings!

    1. Hi Ciera! So nice to meet you!

      Why yes, I was homeschooled. I graduated this year, and am taking a year off to pursue writing. I loved taking a peek at your blog, and I'm glad you stopped by!

  3. So excited to follow your journey! I love your blog.

  4. Hi Miss Stephanie. I got a link to your blog from Eliza's blog. I have mental problems, and some that are not common and people think are something that can't be changed. Because of little studies done, there isn't much known about it. I don't want to say what it is. But it sure as devils' fire ain't as bad as Lymes, which I have heard of before. I like your blog, and hope to get to know ya a bit better via blogger. God is good.
