Hey friend! Welcome to my little corner of the Internet 🙂

If we were to meet, I’d probably suggest we go to a cafe and talk over coffee or hot cinnamon rolls and lose track of time. I would hope that as we become friends, we’d be able to lay our thoughts on the table and trust each other with our struggles. I would want to listen to the questions and aches you have to share, and laugh with you when I hear of the good things God is doing in your life. It makes me so happy to listen to and encourage souls around me. 🙂

But, since I can’t sit down and have a 2-hour conversation with every believer on a regular basis, I decided to do the next best thing: start a blog. I’m not an expert on life, but I’m learning. So, my hope is that Finer Confidence will give you, my high school and college-aged friends, a place to refuel and be inspired in your faith.

Through this blog, I hope to encourage you to dig into the truths of Scripture and root your confidence God’s grace; to focus on the things that really matter, and find comfort through the pains and stresses this season brings.

Here you’ll find Bible study tips, book recommendations, encouragement letters, and most of all, authenticity. Because seriously, real and honest is the only way to go, right? I hope you’ll stick around as I share what I’m learning with you. 🙂

Note: this blog was previously “The Other Side” and transition is still in progress, so please excuse any mismatching themes or half-finished pages. 😉

I’m a flawed follower of Jesus, daily learning to trust His grace and serve Him with every fiber of my being.

My life consists of loud laughter, frequent hugs, and sloshing coffee into a mug—when I’m not busy jamming words into Microsoft or playing the piano. 

If you were to randomly walk into my house (preferably after knocking…and making an appointment 😉 ), you’d probably find me scribbling in my planner (which I follow 2% of the time), teaching piano, or writing…either for a homework assignment or some other reason my distracted little brain comes up with.

My favorite things in life are my sweet siblings and nephews, long talks over coffee, and most of all, early mornings spent with Jesus. I could fill pages with my favorite Scripture verses, but instead of posting a whole journal here, I’ll leave you with a few I simply adore:

  • 2 Corinthians 12:9
  • Isaiah 43:2
  • Isaiah 6:8
  • The gospel and epistles of John

I hope we can grow together as I share my thoughts with you! Let’s focus on finer things together, shall we? ❤
