Yes, really. I hope you’ll find a home here.
First post. It’s a bit stressful really. There’s a lot of pressure to kick this thing off with a beautiful fanfare. Instead, I think I’ll tell you a little bit about me and about what this blog will become.
I’m Jackie. I love Jesus, words, creativity, certain kinds of awkwardness, and teenagers with bad attitudes. I am the biggest Narnia nerd you’ve ever wanted to avoid, and I love life, including but not limited to the color red, my alma mater Northwestern College, art magazines, cherry wood, Edmund Pevensie, Stargirl, Gilbert Blythe, Peace Like a River, Ron Weasley, summer camp, C.S. Lewis, ministry, babies, summer, chocolate, antiques, sarcasm, audiobooks.
I hate OCD.
But I love my story of OCD because it’s a love story, a rescue.
This blog is so that I can share my own journey with OCD, encouragement for others, scenes from the book I’m writing (which features OCD as the villain), and my general thoughts on life. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
