Hello and hello.

the world is loud and sometimes I despise it — I have a feeling you feel like that too. we can only start by overturning our corners of the world, so go ahead. devour books, fall in love, spin to music, develop a passion for labor history, find a map and pinpoint where you want to go.

my name is Abby and somehow you’ve found your way into the head of an eccentric 19 year old. full-time college student/waitress/kindergarten assistant. I am a church of christ child with a prayer rope flair for the orthodox. the ten siblings that run around my house keep my other home full to the brim.

when the world has got you down and beats you around, you can come read or scream a little with me. God didn’t give us words for nothing, so let’s use them to make a difference. lord, have mercy, lord, have mercy, lord, have mercy. the world can change and things are beautiful when you smile and hold someone’s hand.

“I want to see beauty. In the ugly, in the sink, in the suffering, in the daily, in all the days before I die, the moments before I sleep.” -Ann Voskamp
