Who’s Behind the Blog?

Hi! My name is Laura. I’m a 19-year-old follower (first and foremost) of Christ, but also of Marvel movies, cute kitten GIFs, fantasy novels, and pumpkin spice frappuccinos (they’re only a cliché because they taste like hugs from autumn itself).

As a sophomore at Liberty University, I’m pursuing a degree in Strategic Communications, which is a fancy way of saying that if I don’t write, the words in my head will eventually build to a boiling point, and I’ll find myself wide awake at 2 AM with a pen in one hand and a flashlight in the other.

I’ve decided to combine two of my greatest passions — the written word and advocating for women — into this little blog, where I’ll be addressing a variety of topics pertaining to being a Christian woman in both the world and the church.

I’ll be sharing my own experiences growing from a young girl into a young woman in Christian culture, explaining the differences between some overarching theologies (what does it mean to be a complementarian, versus an egalitarian?), and addressing what I believe to be ongoing blind spots in the way our churches minister to young women (does your youth group’s sex talk ever discuss sexual consent?).

I hope and pray that I will challenge, encourage, and grow my fellow believers as the Lord leads. I don’t have all the answers, but let’s try to ask better questions for a better world.

“In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.” ~ Acts 2:17 (NIV)
