Hello.

 

I’m Maddie.

I love Jesus.  He is my hope and my joy; my salvation and my life.

I love words. I love the way they can capture and express emotions and 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 post my poems here.

I love handlettering. You can check out some of my work here.

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 am currently a student at a pretty awesome Christian liberal arts college, and I love it there.

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.

I struggle with depression, and sometimes I write about it here. Writing helps me to process my emotions and thoughts, separate truth from lies, and remind myself of the hope I have in Christ.

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.
