Who Is Becca?

IMG_0248

In Summary:

My name is Becca. I’m sassy. Truly great at creating awkward situations. I am a vegetarian. The oldest of four girls. I love cheese, wine, deep conversations and controversial topics. My dogs run my house. I’m a skeptic by nature and no stranger to struggle. I have a big heart for hurting people and scars that offer empathetic hope. My life story is a crazy one, but a brokenly beautiful one too.

I’m just a girl attempting to navigate this messy life one day at a time, getting to know someone who saved me. I don’t have all of the answers, but I have tasted a love that doesn’t make sense. I’ve run from this man called Jesus. I’ve doubted and still do. I have a lot of questions and I mess up a lot. I’m learning, though. And I know this: He is real, and really cares about us. My heart behind writing this blog is to share this journey with you.

I also wear crop tops sometimes, have a few tattoos and say things that are more comfortable unsaid. Enter this roller coaster of a brain at your own risk, my friend.


Diving Deeper:

Still curious? Alright! If you ask my mom, she’ll tell you I’m great (I think). If you ask anyone who has ever hurt someone I love…PG-13 synonym for “defensive.” Friends from 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 am I?  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. Trauma and healing have molded me. But my true identity isn’t attached to any of that. Who I am is actually pretty simple, and something that’s hard for me to believe: 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. 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.

I am loved. So are you. I belong here. You do too.

Nice to meet you!
