About


Hello, there!  I'm Ella and I use this little space on the internet to write about books I'm reading, films I love, and occasionally share ramble-y thoughts about God and his grace as I see and experience it.

Some things to know about me...

By the grace of God, I'm a child of God, and I am continuously overwhelmed by his goodness to me.  I'm in college studying English with the goal of teaching it as a second language in another part of the world someday.  I am an INTJ which basically means that I am an introverted over-thinker, I find studying enjoyable, and don't understand my emotions very well.  Fun stuff.  I read a lot of books, and prefer them to most social events.  My favorite season is winter, to the confusion of mostly everyone.  I play the piano and the guitar, though not as much as I'd like, and if I wasn't in school for most of my life, I'd learn how to play the cello.

I love stories about bravery and strong women who didn't give up.  I love books that point to the Gospel even when the truth is buried deep.  I love the book of Jeremiah, strong coffee, and bookstores.  If you talk to me long enough, I'll probably bring up Lord of the Rings, C.S. Lewis, The Crown, and snow.

I hope you hear truth in the words I write, truth about a God who loves and redeems a world gone all wrong.  Thanks for stopping by.
