I have had an urge to write for as long as I can remember. Even when I haven't necessarily felt inspired, I could not ignore the need to write. Many times I've felt as if God planted a seed in my soul, and as that seed sprouted and grew I had to give it a way out. So, I began to journal. As I wrote day after day I felt more at peace. I never thought of myself as a writer per se. In fact, my education is in art and design. But, as I've grown older I have felt myself gravitate more towards writing, and I feel as if I can paint a clearer picture of what is in my heart with words more so than with a brush.
