Hey, friend! I’m Kelsey. And I’m so glad you here.
I’m an unlikely Bible-loving, passion-pursuing, women-encouraging writer. That’s quite the sentence, huh?
Let’s break it down.
Unlikely Bible Lover:
I’ve had to dig out and replace some deep church wounds and lies. And it’s only by the grace of God that I can now see His Word as hope and not condemnation.
Unlikely Passion Pursuer:
I don’t like doing stuff that I might fail at. I don’t like doing things that might upset other people. (I’m an Enneagram 9, in case you were wondering.) And, well, pursuing one’s passions is bound to irritate others, and, unfortunately, I’m going to get it wrong a time or two (or one hundred).
But knowing this about myself has made it possible for me to push past the fear and focus on what’s True. This is why you’ll hear me talk about personality theories, self-awareness, and spiritual giftings. I want this for you, too. Which leads us to. . .
Unlikely Woman Encourager:
Growing up I was the girl with WAY more guy-friends than girlfriends. Women (or girls, for that matter) intimidated me. Everything felt like a competition—one that I rarely won. And guys were easier to understand, anyway.
But I’ve realized that (mostly through writing in this space) MANY women just like me: struggle to be themselves, pursue passions, find deep friendships, cultivate community, etc. . .
It’s not me against the world. It’s us ushering in the Kingdom into this world. And that can only be done with linked arms and every one of us walking out who we were made to be.
I’m also. . .
