Home schooled all of my life, I first began reading at age four. Since then I have thoroughly enjoyed many classics (and not-so-classic treasures) before aspiring to become a blogger, postulating that Jane Austen herself would have written a blog if Blogspot had been available. I am the second oldest of six children (the oldest being my twin sister and fellow blog writer, Lauren) and the daughter of Steve and Jennifer. Only a decade ago, I had the same mindset many other girls have, expecting to go to college, get a job, and be “independent” for an indefinite period. Now I am content to remain in my father’s house and under his guidance until he passes on the responsibility to another man. My chief desire is to glorify God with the abilities that He has given me, and that goal, as well as my desire for Christians to realize their incredibly unique mission in life, motivates everything I do, including writing my blog, One Bright Corner.
