In high school, I was introduced to this quote by Roy H. Williams:
As a lover of words and stories, most of the time I’d have to agree. But I also love the stories that are told through photos. So, today, here are ten stories about me shared through photos.
I was born into a great family with three younger siblings. If there wasn’t such a large gap in our ages, the four of us could probably pass for two sets of twins.
I started writing when I was 8 and have continued until now.
In high school, I did a lot of things – maybe too many. But it seemed the thing to do at the time.
I traveled 9 hours away to go to college, where I had a lot of fun…
…and met some great friends.
I did a bit of traveling and caught a glimpse of how big the world is.
I did some volunteer work, went on some mission trips, and along the way caught a heart for kids.
So when I graduated from college, I decided to take a year and work in an inner-city ministry.
But then I learned how hard – and often, how discouraging – serving other people can be. Plus, I still had this little voice in the back of my head that said, “And what about God’s call to writing?”
With a little help from some great friends and great books, I’m filling up the places drained dry from a year of full-time ministry. And as I look ahead, I’m searching for ways my passions for stories and people might fit together.
