The Girl Behind The Blog

Hi--I'm Natalie! I'm a twenty-something elementary teacher, currently living in the mid-west.

My faith and relationship with Jesus Christ is the most important part of me. An addict of the gospel and its wondrous grace is what I desire to sink my roots into. It's both a process and a journey--with highs as lows. But I firmly believe that it's in the brokenness and mess, that He fashions something genuinely beautiful. It's because we're formed in His likeness and image that our lives get to be breathing testimonies for others to encounter this unconditional love, with mercy overflowing.

I love words. Reading books, writing, journals, letters--these I take great pleasure in. If I have any say about it, snail mail and libraries will not pass into the recesses of our lives. Copious cups of coffee and tea are a must. I prescribe to the belief that when God made coffee, He said it was good. Exceptionally Good. So I take mine with extra cream, no sugar, and my tea with an added spoonful of honey. A handful of my favorite things: Colorado and the East Coast, nail polish in shades of berries, autumn, Isaiah 54, and a great pair of jeans with boots.

I like to think of this blog as my online living room. So I'm inviting you in. Grab yourself a cup of joe, tea... whatever floats your boat. Let's sit down and chat, or as some like to call it "doing life together."


I'd love to hear from you, so let's get connected! E-mail me at or catch me over at these spots...
