Hello! I’m Tristen, a broken sinner who is incomprehensibly loved by her heavenly Father. I am learning how to live my story for His glory and using this blog as a means to export the lessons taught so far. I pray my thoughts shine a glimmer of light in your journey. For now, a little more about me:
I am a proud alumna of Greer Middle College Charter High School (HOME of the Blazers, get fired up, woo!) where I was the editor-in-chief of The Forge. I graduated with 23 dual enrollment credits, which allowed me to complete a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communication in two and a half years.
I also enjoy standing in awe of God’s creation. Whether it be a sky full of stars or a wooded creek, I am a nature girl you have to watch because I might wander off and not come back.
I am loyal to a fault and quite joyful despite my weakness for anything and everything poignant. I love it when people laugh, but I am so black-and-white that my attempts at humor rarely come off as I intend.
Despite popular belief, I am an introvert because I need the quiet of solitude to recharge my social battery. However, I love being with people (especially my inner circle). Humanity is God’s walking poetry and I love learning from and seeing micro-aspects of His character through those around me.
Most importantly, however, I am a Christian. I believe Jesus Christ died and rose again for the salvation of His children. I love Him because—no matter how many times I fall short—He continues to love me unconditionally. I pray you know He loves you that much, too.
