"The words "Jesus Freak" were first coined in the late sixties, when hippies became part of a new revival, the Jesus Movement. It was a time when music, poetry, and an open expression for Jesus Christ turned a new generation on to God. It merged rock and roll with Gospel message, a wave we're still riding today known as contemporary Christian Music. It infused the Church with the arts. It shook up conventional worship. And, due to its "in your face" approach, it had a backlash. The rest of the world called these over-zealous young people "Jesus Freaks" as a derogatory term. But decades later a new generation is embracing that same passion for expression."--Kevin Max "Jesus Freaks" by: dcTalk and the VOTM
I'm a short, clumsy, and complete zany contradiction. I tend to enjoy a little adventure, and imagination with anything and everything I do. I began writing as a hobby to relay ideas on script when I was 12 years old. I always enjoyed storytelling and expressing my imagination through stories. I also love music and I have loved it since before I could talk. It is the language I understand more than English... so, in light of that, I am learning to play guitar and Scottish tin whistle. Soon I want to get into percussion with recycled junk.
I was born and raised in Upstate South Carolina. I have a family of five in a small apartment on the westside of our town. We all are very creative, Mum is a website designer and the main provider of the house. She's starting back in college and collaborates with our ministry, LIGHT for MI. Daddy is an artist and is working towards creating t-shirt designs, painting and preparing for an art show. And my brother, Aric is a video game & lego builder, and a mighty fine cook. And my sister, Aneira is an artist and dancer. We have one cat Thorin Beorn-- King Under the Basket and he is the sweetest darn thing in the world!
I have been Confirmed into the Anglican Faith, and have a passion for Christ that keeps me in check. There are a many times where I was struggling to keep above the waves, and some of my old writings do reveal that struggle. But, I'm always coming back... I've been homeschooled for a while and am still in 12th grade in my early 20's. I hope to graduate very soon and then find my place in this life. I'm not sure where I want to go... However, I do have the dream to help other teens who have struggled like me, with depression and self-harm emphasizing the one message a lot of depressed teens normally overlook; "You are not alone."

"Every nation has an anthem. Every song begins unsung, unwritten, and silent, then all of a sudden it bursts out with melodies, choruses, and vocals! Our anthems are sung through the choices we make, the life we live, and the ways we act. Each verse is unsung until we make our choices, live our lives, and act our love, but the chorus is ever-constant, portraying the love of our King for His children and warriors, pilgriming to Heaven!" -Me

"Christians were never meant to be normal. We’ve always been holy troublemakers, we’ve always been creators of uncertainty, agents of dimension that’s incompatible with the status quo; we do not accept the world as it is, but we insist on the world becoming the way that God wants it to be. And the Kingdom of God is different from the patterns of this world." --Jacques Ellul
"Be soft. Don't let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place." --Kurt Vonnegut
