also known as rad.

I'm a believer (God's boundless grace and radical love wreck and restore me daily). I'm a writer, designer, and editor (my real job). I'm an Enneagram One with a sliiiiight Two wing (this is all you need to know, really). I'm an INFJ and a highly sensitive person. I'm gluten-free and vegan and I love it but I definitely miss bread. I have a handful of tattoos, love black + neutrals more than color, am a big fan of essential oils, almost always have a braid or bun in my hair, and definitely feel like my nose ring makes me more badass. (Sorry if “bad words” make you uncomfortable… because I’m kind of a fan.) I'm often found on my counselor's couch, in a hot yoga studio, outdoors, being a homebody, or browsing a bookstore. Speaking of books, I read a lot of them (like, a lot) and overgram my thoughts on them.

I have strong opinions and big beliefs. I'll share them here, sprinkled amongst book reviews, links I love, and the thoughts that spill over onto the keys. Oh, and I recently told the whole world my story (the scariest thing I’ve ever done) and you can read it here.

I'll keep it real with you, always

This is where I record bits of my journey, the best of God's gifts, and the bravest words I can find. It's my prayer that what you find here encourages you, gives you a new idea, reminds you of truth, or leaves you a little better and feeling a little less alone.

xo, rad.
