What will you find on this blog? Many things. The biggest thing you’ll find, I hope, is honesty. Honesty is what God wants from me with Him, it’s what He wants from me with those around me. Honesty is something the world, in general, craves.

In Little Women, Professor Bhaer tells Jo that she should never write a single word that she has not first felt in her heart. That is wise, good advice. And that’s what I strive to do.

So, I won’t sugar-coat the truth. I will seek to be loving, but in many ways I wear my heart on my sleeve in this blog. I’m blunt about how I think and feel. Since that is the case, I will probably say many things that have the potential to offend you or that might possibly go against your beliefs.

Honestly, I hope that I challenge what you believe. I pray that through reading about my struggles, my heart and mind, and my own personal relationship with Jesus, that you will be challenged and grow in your faith.

I’ve noticed a strange thing over the last few years. It seems the more I write, the closer people feel to me. People I hardly know, or don’t know at all, have come to know me. It can create an odd relationship between myself and others because the truth is: I just don’t know them.

This doesn’t bother me. It doesn’t bother me because it’s the result of honesty. But I want you to know, dear reader, that if I ever meet you and don’t respond the way you’re expecting me to, it’s nothing personal and I would love to get to know you!

So, read on! Let me know what you think. Tell me if there’s something you’d like me to write about.

Much love,
~Ellen
