My very first blog post was on May 9th, 2014, right after my last class a few days before graduation. I had a feeling that I wouldn't write as much after graduation and once I began working. So I created a blog to have a platform to fulfill my passion. I wanted to inspire, relate, motivate, and encourage young adults like me that may find this journey of adulting difficult and complicated. I especially wanted make sure that God is the center of every post because I can't write without Him. I've tried it and the content is terrible lol. I remember being in my single dorm room creating the page and writing my first post. I prayed to God that even if I got no views or comments or shares, I'm completely ok with that because I know who I'm doing it for and I don't want any glory for it. I'm just exercising my gift. 3 years later, I get up to 90-100 views every few weeks when I post or not. I receive comments and shares. I've been approached in various places by friends and family that they read my blog and encourage me to keep going at it. I've received emails from a few people I don't know that are blessed by them. God is so faithful and I'm thankful that I'm able to manage this for 3 years and continue to build on it. And now I'm on a new path of providing resources such as journals to help encourage young women. Leading them to try a new way of finding their true selves through writing so they can discover who they are outside of their gifts. I'm very excited for the plans God has for this site and movement, it's all in His hands. Thank you for your support and love! Today, you can purchase a journal with a 20% off discount!! Thank you again, love you!
