About the Author

My name is Stephanie, and I started this blog to make space for myself (and people who identify with me in one way or another) to process life and find freedom to be who we were created to be.

Among my many identities, I am an introvert, a white woman from the United States, and a Christian who struggles sometimes to reconcile the love of God with the unloving actions of the people who follow him, including myself. I am an adoptee, a college graduate, a registered non-partisan voter, a wife, a former missionary. All of these identities significantly shape my view of myself, my view of my surroundings, and my writing.

My hope is that each post would empower readers to take one more step toward their truest identity and toward a flourishing life.
