When I was 13 years old, I stumbled across my friend, Corie, writing a letter. While it was was more common to see people writing letters then, in that time before the internet was widely known, it was still pretty rare among teenagers. And when I asked Corie what she was doing, she responded, “Writing a letter to Daddy God.” Those six words changed my life. And ever since, no matter where life has taken me, I’ve had a journal within arm’s reach, where I could write my letters to Daddy God. In March of 2009, He firmly suggested it was time to share my thoughts and lessons and prayers with you. And so, here we are. By day, I’m an administrative assistant, freelance writer and editor. But in the free hours, I blog here at Living Between the Lines, while simultaneously living outside lines. I’m originally from the lovely Crystal Coast of North Carolina. But today, I happily make my home in the suburbs of Portland, Oregon. I’m a writer, a reader, a listener, a friend, and a child of God. Join me between the lines. You’re welcome and safe within them.
