Welcome to Crafted by Christ!
My name is Miriam, and I am a 19-year-old, coffee-loving college student with a passion for sharing the love of God with others and helping Christians make their faith their own.
The most important thing that you should know about me is that I’m a believer in Jesus Christ. Although I said the “salvation prayer” in Kindergarten, I didn’t fully commit my life to Christ until I was 13. Now I’m trying my best to live for the Creator who loves me enough to lay down His life for me.
I have a passion for helping teens and pre-teens develop spiritual disciplines and take the next step in their relationships with Christ. I believe that God intends to use my generation in incredible ways if we will only submit to his will, and it starts with some basic, daily habits like reading the Bible and praying. These habits changed my life as a young teen, so I am passionate about sharing their power with others.
I was homeschooled for most of my education and I absolutely loved it. Learning from home taught me so many valuable skills for college and for life. Now I am in my junior year of college pursuing a degree in Early Childhood Education and in Christian Ministries, with a minor in Communications.
I love to diagram sentences, write essays, and read 500-page novels. Grammar class was always my favorite. I’ve always been an English person, but I try not to be a grammar Nazi, even though bad spelling drives me crazy.
I love kids. I minister in my church’s kid’s program, babysit, teach Sunday school, and lead a Bible study for pre-teen girls. I cannot wait to minister to kids for the rest of my career.
I always wonder what writers look like when I’m reading their blogs, books, or articles. Just for the record, I’m 5’5 (and a half!) with long, blonde hair and hazel eyes. I’m often told that I’m deathly pale. All. Year. Long.
I’m Type A through and through! Organization is my therapy. I LOVE post-it tabs, three-ring binders, brand new, crisp notebooks, and fine-tipped pens. I would fail all my classes without my planner and colored highlighters.
I have an unhealthy addiction to chocolate. Can you even get counseling for that?
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by to explore my blog. I pray that you are encouraged to live your life completely and only for our Father, God.
