about me

hi! i'm melissa & this is my crew.
welcome to this space. 

here you will find my thoughts on motherhood, practicing the way of jesus and finding beauty in the mundane. i have been in love with the written word since i was small enough to fit under our family coffee table. it was there that i created my first stories. unbeknownst to me, at the time, i was part of a greater story. 

"if i have a hope, it's that god sat over the dark nothing and wrote you and me, specifically, into the story, and put us in with the sunset and the rainstorm as though to say, enjoy your place in my story. the beauty of it means you matter, and you can create within it even as i have created you."
-donald miller, a million miles in a thousand years 

we are all telling a story inside of a story. my hope is that beauty will be found in the words that i weave. 

"your life is a blank page. you write on it."
