31 Days of Being

This is a season of newness for me. New friends. New environment. New classes. New challenges. And in all of that, I’m about to try yet another new adventure!

In October, I will be taking on the 31 Day Writing Challenge. Turns out that Ellie and I both had the same idea: check out her blog too! (You can find out more and/or join the movement here.) My focus will be on the word “being.” What does it mean to simply be?

So what can you expect? First, you can expect a post every day for the next month. Second, my posts will probably take on a different form. They will most likely be shorter, have more personal anecdotes, and be more topical. (To be honest, I don’t even know what to expect from myself. So we’ll explore together!)

You can expect some of the following topics… Thanksgiving. Contentment. Peace. Grace. Fullness. Rest. Balance.

Also!! Featuring something new: Worship Wednesdays. Every Wednesday, I will share a new worship song that addresses the idea of “being.”

For new readers, as you wait for the first installment of the 31 Day Challenge, here are a few of my favorite blog posts.

A Light in the Darkness: God’s faithfulness in my first weeks of college

AP Lit and Moby Dick: Hope in a fallen world
