Welcome to my online home…my couch on the internet. Grab some iced coffee from my fridge and sit here next to me and yes- please grab a handful of these chocolate-covered animal crackers. Because if you don’t, I will end up eating the whole bag without even noticing.

I’ve started many a’blog in my past and here is the thing that I keep getting caught up on, the thing that I can’t seem to push through: every blog that I’ve started and eventually “failed” at (if you can call it failing, asterisk here and we will talk more about failure later) has been essentially because I was trying to craft some sort of identity or packaged idea that ended up not feeling right. After a few months of writing under a blog name or idea, it would inevitably start to feel fake or forced or just off somehow. Finally it began to sink in that maybe (!) I should just leave the branding of a superfluous idea in the dust and just do me.

I’ve been a writer since I was a little girl keeping spiral bound notebooks full of adventure stories about mermaids and girls who rode motorcycles (complete with illustrations!) and that is who I am choosing to honor with this blog. I write- not because I always have something profound to say but- because it is who I am. I will honor that child of God who embraced the tools placed in her hands as easily as breathing and I will try to remember what it was like to wholeheartedly trust the One who made me perfectly.

I will let go of the pressure to try and make it anything more than it already is…a gift.

So, please come hang out with me when you need a moment to just chill. I hope the conversation turns in to one of those really great ones that make you laugh and think and want to keep talking!

Here are three ways to keep up with me elsewhere to keep this good thing going: Twitter / Instagram / Email: longeneckersb(at)gmail  👊🏼👍🏼🍪
