About

About the blog… God Gazing started as a way to document my preparations and travels to Liberia in November 2013. Four years later, and this is the corner of the world where I document how God has been working and declare His faithfulness in my life.

About the title…The title by Psalm 27:4, “One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord, and to seek him in his temple.” I believe if we keep our eyes open, we can glimpse God’s kingdom and His beauty on Earth. I want to be intentional in looking for God in my everyday life (similar to how star-gazing is intentionally searching for stars). I want to keep track of those glimpses on this blog, so that I may praise Him for His faithfulness when life is rough. Thus, God Gazing was conceived.

About the author…  I have a passion for well-crafted words and stories. Currently I get to use that passion in writing papers for professors as I pursue studies in Anthropology and Marketing at the College of William & Mary. Other passions include going barefoot, a cup of hot tea, dark chocolate, ethical and sustainable business models, classy cars, exploring cultures and stories, and my savior Jesus Christ.

  1. I LOVE your blog! How come you decided to wait to get your drivers license until 18?I’m considering doing that as well. Thats neat to meet a blogger who is homeschooled and soon to be graduating! Congratulations

    • Thank you so much, Anna! It’s so nice to hear feedback from readers.

      I decided to wait for a few reasons. First, my dad was out of town a lot when I had my permit so it was slow learning to drive. Second, I was able to use a preferred Driver’s Ed program, rather than the county approved one. And third, I decided that I didn’t feel ready and wanted to be confident as a driver. (There’s also a higher rate of accidents for drivers under 18.) I would be happy to talk more, if you’re interested. Just reply here, and I can send you an email 🙂

      Thanks again for reading!

  2. That’s a good reason to start a blog, and I am glad it turned into so much more! I started blogging when I went to South Africa and by now it has become a way to process things for me.
    It is quite a transition away from home and seeing other parts; that year in South Africa was also one of the most challenging but also the most blessed and growth-filled of my life. I hope you see more and more benefits coming through in your life as you go into this new phase of your life!
