The personal bio:
Hi, I’m Samantha. I’m so glad you stopped by. I’m first and foremost, a follower of Jesus Christ, wife to a seminary student and R.N., mother to a newborn and a toddler (need I say more?!), a writer and editor, and a young woman who’s in desperate need of Jesus, grace, and authentic relationships.
Since the fourth grade, I’ve loved to write and feel like I owe a lot to the people God has put on my path to being a writer. My fourth grade teacher thought I would write a novel one day. My 6th grade teacher read aloud to our class an essay I wrote describing my favorite place. In 11th grade, my Creative Writing teacher gave me straight A’s and told me I should pursue English in college.
So I did at Liberty University and my sophomore year I published my first article, “Creating a Block of Solitude” in Brio Magazine. Two separate summers, I interned in book publishing at Focus on the Family in Colorado Springs and at LifeWay in Student Ministry Publishing in Nashville. Those internships gave me opportunities to publish more articles and contribute to several books.
After getting married and moving to Dallas for my husband’s seminary education, in 2008 I accepted a job offer to work as a writer/content editor for Bluefish TV/RightNow writing and editing Bible study curriculum.
Today, I’m still involved in some of the work at Bluefish TV and freelancing, but my primary responsibility is being a helpmate to my husband, investing and caring for our children, and keeping our home together. I’ve always dreamed of writing a book and I believe this is the year to get started on a book proposal (scary!). So during naps and in the evening after bedtimes, I’m typing away.
I don’t have it all together when it comes to writing or my faith, but through the stories, devotions, and articles in this little space, my hope is that your affections for Jesus will grow deeper and that you’ll be stirred to put your faith into action every day that God gives you. I’d love to hear from you anytime.
