I tell you the truth, those who listen to my message and believe in God who sent me have eternal life.
They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life.

-Jesus

(John 5:24, NLT)


About Me: Talk to me. I love talking to people, and if you ever need someone to listen, I'm here! :)

I'm So Excited For: life. Fulfilling all that God has planned for me. College. Meeting new people.

My Goals: to write stories I would love to read. Stories that are snappy, stories that are funny, stories that make you think and, above all, stories that glorify God and showing His ultimate love. But not everything I write is overtly Christian (much of it isn't), so if you're not into that, you should still take a look. Feel free to look around or ask me anything!
