Hello everyone! I’m so excited because today I get to introduce you to someone!
A few months ago when I began creating this blog I was struggling with trying to balance a part-time job and be consistent in creating content. I was really starting to get overwhelmed but I felt a huge pull from the Lord to keep working on this blog and not give up on it. The lord kept putting this idea in my head about reaching out and finding someone to help me write on the blog. Then the Lord kept putting a certain person on my heart. So I took the chance, I reached out to her and asked her to join me in this journey. Well, long story short, she said yes and I’m so happy to have her here as a part of this blog. So today I’m introducing you to my friend and writing partner, Autumn!
For today’s post and wanted to create a fun little way for you all to meet her! So I decided to write out a few “get-to-know-you” questions and had Autumn answer them. I hope you all enjoy getting know Autumn a little better through this interview style.
Briefly introduce yourself?
Hello! I’m Autumn and I’m just a California girl who has found herself living in the midwest. I grew up in a Christian household but didn’t accept Christ as my personal Savior until I was thirteen. I’ve been writing since I was nine years old in the form of novels, blog posts, and short stories.
How did you hear about this blog and become a contributor?
I heard about it from Sydney, the creator of the blog! Ten years ago, we went to the same church together and became friends. We stayed at the same church together for many years but I moved out of state about two years ago. We stayed connected via Instagram but reconnected through video calls and now here we are, writing on her blog together!
What did you study in School?
Theatre arts! I grew up studying ballet but when I went to college I wanted to take a different route with my ‘stage career’. I was a performer and in a handful of musicals. I also took a year to study the behind the scene aspect of theatre and actually was hired as a technical assistant at my college’s performing arts center. I worked there for about a year designing lights, building sets, and working sound for events. In my final semester, I was in the school musical as well as building the set!
What would be your dream job?
A mother! I’ve wanted to be a mother since I was a young girl. To someday be a mother would be a dream come true!
What are your favorite Summer activities?
Hiking, swimming, and I love exploring new parks in the area.
What’s you’re favorite Bible verse?
“I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20
What is something that God has been teaching you about this past year?
He has taught me so much about TRUSTING Him. I have always had such a hard time trying to trust Him and always fell into unbiblical thinking surrounding trusting Him. This year, He has truly challenged me and after a lot of fighting, I realized I would not feel peace unless I trusted Him. It’s hard laying my dreams at Christ’s feet and trusting He will do what is best for me, but I trust Him, and hopefully, He will continue this lesson in trust.
