Meet Miriam

Welcome to Crafted by Christ!

My name is Miriam, and I am a 18-year-old, coffee-loving college student with a passion for sharing the love of God with others and helping young 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 am the oldest of 5 kids. Even though it can be challenging, I absolutely love being a big sister and seeing what God has for each of my younger siblings. My siblings are my best friends and my greatest blessings.

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, with minors in Special Education and Writing (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 become a teacher.

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 medium-length, blonde hair and hazel eyes. I’m often told that I’m deathly pale. All. Year. Long.

I’m a Type A girl through and through! Organization is my obsession. I LOVE post-it tabs, three-ring binders, brand new, crisp notebooks, and fine-tipped pens. I would fail all my college classes without my planner and colored gel pens.

I have an unhealthy addiction to chocolate. Can you even get counseling for that?

So now it’s your turn. I would be thrilled to get to know you better! Click here to introduce yourself by joining the Crafted by Christ Facebook community.

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 audaciously for the glory of the Creator.
