ABOUT

I’m Maddie.

Welcome to my little corner of the web.

Let me tell you a bit about myself:

I love Jesus.  He is my hope and my joy; my salvation and my life. I will talk about Him A LOT here.

I love words. I love the way they can capture and express emotions, memories, and thoughts; how they can be used to speak truth into people’s lives; how they can describe the glow of a sunset or the way the world feels after a rainstorm. I write poetry and I try to write fiction. I journal pretty regularly. Writing helps me to process my emotions and thoughts, separate truth from lies, and remind myself of the hope I have in Christ.

I love hand-lettering. I started back in 2014, and have been doing it as a little side job ever since—several people (so far, mostly those that I know and live near to) have hired me to make projects for them.

I have a deep appreciation for indie-folk music, heavy rainstorms, smoothies, avocados, deep conversations with friends, laughing until I feel lightheaded, long walks, sunrises, curry, wool socks, journaling, jello, puns, almost every shade of the color blue, sweet potatoes, exploring in nature, skillful writing, and peppermint tea made with fresh mint leaves and honey.

I am a people-loving introvert. I really love solitude, but not too much of it, as that can lead to too much time in my head.

All my life I’ve had to deal with Horner’s Syndrome and Celiac Disease (an autoimmune disease, a severe intolerance to gluten). Life with these can be really hard at times, but God is so good through it all.

This blog is where I share what God has been teaching me, what’s been happening, and what brings me joy, as well as artwork, photography and the like. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Hi Maddie! I was reading this page, and thought I’d leave you a comment…it seems like we have a lot in common…I love hand lettering, bible journaling, words, mint chocolate chip ice cream, plus I have Celiac Disease too! Your blog is beautiful, and so is your heart for the Lord.

  2. Your blog is beautiful, Maddie! I appreciate the raw honesty and love for God which is portrayed here. :) My brother has Celiac Disease and my mum is intolerant to gluten, so I definitely understand how life can be hard! I also suffer from depression, but God is always bringing beauty out of trials, isn’t he? It’s wonderful that you’re using this suffering to create a wonderful thing – this blog! :D
    By the way, what is Horner’s Syndrome? I don’t think I’ve heard of it before.
