Baby, we’re the new romantics - the best people in life are free.
— Taylor Swift


I’m Allie, a lover of words, Jesus, people, and the color pink.  I’m a little clumsy and a lot excited about the world, and when I don't have my nose stuck in a book, you can find me with pen in hand, whether grading history papers or telling stories.  I'm a big believer in the value of both.

I’m all about finding grace for the past, freedom for the present and hope for the future in Christ, and this corner of the Internet has become a place for me to do just that while I stretch my creative muscles, share stories, and speak truth. 

Come learn what it looks like to fall in love with your life and your Lord - what it means to be a new romantic.  And don’t be shy – you are welcome here!
