About Me:

Hannah (Hanneli)


     When I was a little girl I thought that when I grew up I'd have life all figured out. I thought I'd be cool, confident, and collected like all the adults in my life. 
     Now that I've (mostly) grown up, I've realized that  no one ever feels completely cool, confident, and collected. No one ever completely grows up. Deep down inside we all still feel like little kids: insecure, awkward, and uncoordinated. And you know what? That's okay. Because the more childlike we are, the more trusting, loving, and excited about life we are. 
     I've found that, for myself, my insecurity leaves room for God to work. My feelings of inferiority remind me that my worth comes from Him, not the opinions of the "cool" people. My lack of confidence forces me to trust Him and not myself. And my utter disorganization and cluelessness about life reminds me that He is the source of order, not my endless to-do lists and iPhone reminders. And all this makes me almost glad that I haven't (and probably never will) grow up. It's better (and much more fun) to be a little kid holding onto my heavenly Father's hand as he leads me through life!
     This blog, like me, is a bit sporadic. It's mainly about writing, because that's what I love to do. It's also about crafting, because that's also what I love to do. It could also about cooking, photography, knitting, crocheting, sewing, movie-watching, and maybe even cleaning, because those are also what I love to do.
     But most of all this blog is about a girl, a stranger in this paradise of a world, finding her place in life, however that ends up happening. I'm looking forward to the journey, and I hope you'll join me.
