Welcome to Becoming Emma. Thanks for joining me on this crazy adventure of becoming me! I am on an exciting journey of discovering who I am in Christ. I’m always searching for opportunities for my passion for writing and the things that inspire me to collide.
I live in a small town in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. I love lacing up my running shoes, going out for a long run, and breathing in the crisp mountain air. I consider any day spent curled up in a blanket while reading a book a good day. Empty notebooks filled with possibilities and new pens make me happy. I enjoy every moment spent in the company of my friends and family. I try to be a morning person, but thank goodness for coffee. Sunshine and pearls always make me smile. I am learning that life isn’t perfect and I am seeking the grace and goodness of God in the middle of life’s messes. I think words are beautiful, and I learn a little more about myself and about God through writing.
I am a senior in high school. I have been homeschooled throughout high school. When I graduate, I hope to major in creative writing in college so that I may chase my dream of being a writer. To make my dream a reality I am focusing on equipping myself and polishing my writing right now, as a student.
Most importantly, I am a follower of Jesus Christ. I have been challenged throughout the past few years to find my own faith and grow into a personal relationship with God. I am learning that my identity is found in God. I am growing closer and closer to Him everyday and living in response to His amazing grace.
So, this is just a little bit about me. My prayer is that God would use every word He gives me to write to bring glory to Him. I hope to be open and honest and that you might be encouraged through my ramblings. This blog is just a glimpse into my life, what God is teaching me, and all the awesome experiences He leads me to.
