Who Is Becca?

IMG_0248

I’m sassy, I love controversial topics, and I’m not afraid to talk about things that look prettier when they’re hidden. But mostly I just love Jesus. Enter at your own risk.


Who am I?

When I sat down to write this and asked myself that question, my mind went down a bumpy road. Buckle up, and welcome to your first ride through the roller coaster that is my brain:

This Is Me

Surface level summary, easy: My name is Becca. I am obsessed with dogs and all things cheese. I am a vegetarian, one of four girls and the queen of taking jokes too far. My house is run by two Pit Bulls and my brain doesn’t always move in sync with my mouth (we’re not really sure which one is faster). I love deep conversations, my favorite pastime is writing and my heart’s deepest passions revolve around people who are hurting. I laugh at everything even if it’s not funny, sometimes I snort, and I have a few tattoos. I mess up a lot, I get insecure and I sin more than I don’t. Jesus has saved me from things reality could not and He’s rescued me from places too dark for any professional to reach.

Deeper? This one is not as easy to put on paper. If you ask my mom, she’ll tell you I’m great (I think). If you ask anyone who has ever dated or hurt one of my sisters or my best friends…I should probably be in jail. The people I hung out with in college? Let’s just say I wouldn’t volunteer any of them as a reference unless it’s for a Best Keg Stand award.

So who is she?  There are a lot of life-changing events that flood my brain when I go here; a rush of emotions and memories, some incredible and others incredibly painful, each with their own contribution to the Becca I am today. Is my testimony all of the bad things I have gone through or done, and how God has moved through all of it? Is it just the things I have been freed from or does it include the things I still struggle with on a daily basis?

On this particular day as I sat in a pool of other people’s opinions and my own thoughts, God whispered:

“You are mine” 

…That’s it? Boring. Not exactly what I would call material for an intriguing blog post.

“Yes, that’s it. Your identity is a very simple thing. You are mine.” 

So, that is my introduction. My name is Becca, and I am a child of God. My identity is not what has happened to me, what I have done, what I have learned or what I have yet to learn.

My identity is that I belong to the King of the Universe. I am saved, I am redeemed, and I am loved.

The road that has brought me to where I am today is a long, winding one filled with lots of excitement and it’s by no means over. My heart behind writing this blog is to let you join me. It’s full of potholes and sharp turns, sudden stops and scary looking creatures, but it is also full of breathtaking views, freedom and beauty unlike anything I could create for myself. Oh, and laughs…mostly at myself, which I am totally cool with so don’t feel bad joining in. God has a sense of humor, that is for sure.

There are many things that have shaped and molded me into the Becca that I am today, but they do not make up my identity, nor can they change it. I am a daughter of the King, now and forever.

Nice to meet you!
