Behind the blog

_20180322_141840

When being lost in a story provides more comfort than real life,

you’ll find me here.

 

With a passion for books, creative expression and trying to offer a helping hand, Lost In The Story was formed in a college corridor when procrastination had taken a hold.

Left for a while, lost in the story was revamped and turned into the blog you see today. Unlike last time though, this version has a purpose.

There are three main areas of my life that shines through this blog GOD, WRITING and RECOVERY.

GOD– In 2016, one cold night at an event called New Wine, I gave my life to God. Since accepting Jesus as my saviour I’ve had a passion to see others come to know him, especially youth and those suffering with mental health illnesses. I want to tell people about God.

WRITING– Ever since I was a small child I’ve wanted to write. In 2019 I’m going to study creative and professional writing at university. But in my year off, I’d like to keep my writing muscles strong. So, you will often find my brain farts of writing appearing here!

RECOVERY– Two years ago I developed a illness known as anorexia nervosa what, for those of you who don’t know, is an eating disorder. I am currently recovering but that does not mean I can’t share God’s awesomeness and love. I want to tell people who are hurting about the God that saved my life.

This is what my blog is about, turning a painful situation into a good one. God has done so much for me in terms of helping me through mental illnesses and I want to be a pathway to helps others in a similar position to me

I invite you to join me on my journey of coffee, recovery and faith as I find myself lost in the story once again.
