About the Girl

I’m a writer, word lover, book reader, movie watcher, music enthusiast, artist, and blogger. I am unapologetically Christian, and a girl proud of her roots. I live in rural southern Illinois and lead a country lifestyle.

For those who love personality types, I’m an ENFJ (did you know Elizabeth Bennet was one too!?), enneagram 2, “peacock” personality, and an extrovert with some introverted tendencies.

I’m a cat mom (though I’m more of a dog person: don’t ask), have selective OCD (possibly just me being picky), definitely have undiagnosed ADHD, and define myself as a practical romantic and dreamer (whatever that’s supposed to translate into). 

So heyyy, my name’s Hannah. Oh, and I’m 15 (almost 16).

As a Christian, Jesus Christ is my life. He’s my rock, the only solid ground I can stand on. Without Him, my life would lack any purpose and meaning. 

I’m the oldest of eight, homeschooled children. Besides the size, we wouldn’t be hard to find, somehow all of us managed to inherit blond hair and bright blue eyes.

My many obsessions include “Pride and Prejudice”, as well as most things Marvel-related. I love thunderstorms, sunsets, and that odd shade of green the world takes on after rain. The feeling of dancing in the rain reminds me of unfulfilled childhood dreams. 

Social activities, especially ones that include outdoor romping, are among my favorites. No one has truly lived until they have felt the “thrill” of running around like a madman from your friends in a game of airsoft. While I plan on gaining my cosmetology license, my dream job will always be to become a professional 4-wheeler racer. Unfortunately, it’s not a sustainable future… But a girl can dream, right?

Okay, if you couldn’t tell, I’m just a normal teenager who’s growing, learning, and failing. Life is its own constant reminder that it is all slowly dying, and I try to live like every day is my last. A person can never laugh enough, cry too many tears, or hug a friend hard enough before it’s all gone. 

While that all may all have a depressing note, I assure you, life IS amazing. Life may be short, but I have something better to look forward to at the end. Do you? I have the promise of a life with the One who never failed, and never will. The One who loves me so much He died to pay for my sins. Did He die for you too? I hope you know the answer to that question; the peace the answer brings about is truly unmatchable.
