Hi, my name is Jenna.
I’m teen girl with a love for story and a creative heart. You can often find me going barefoot whenever appropriate (and maybe sometimes when it’s not), playing a bit of music, or sticking my nose in a book (too often maybe, if you ask my family). I believe that laughter is the best medicine, books and campfires are two of the best smells, forest walks will cure anything, and a horse’s nicker the sweetest sound. I’m also a writer (if you haven’t guessed already), creator of worlds and weaver of words, an observer (I would say ‘people watcher’, but that sounds creepy to non-writers), dreamer, creative genius (some would beg to differ), and artist. I want to change the world with my writing, one story at a time, to be able to challenge the norms of this world to change hearts for God. Because He gave me this desire for storytelling, and I’m going to use it for His glory.
I want to show the world that stories can be well-written, while teaching lessons, building character, and bring glory to God at the same time.
I began writing when I was about 8, crafting stories about families of bees, cats, and wolves. Ever since then I’ve been filling binder after binder of small stories. In the summer of 2017, a thought occurred to me; “Hmm, how do you actually write a book?” I searched this thought on my laptop, and you can imagine the loads of results I got. I was a little overwhelmed!
But I was determined.
Determined to make my writing better, to begin my journey to better my craft. I wasn’t just going to write stories for fun, I was going to write books to change lives.
And so began my roller-coaster ride to learning more about writing. I’ve learned so much since then, it’s hard to comprehend.
“If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write.” -Martin Luther
And that’s what I want to do. Change the world. Change people. Change hearts, for Him. Because He’s the reason for it all.
Introduce yourself in the comments below! I can’t wait to get to know you. 🙂
