I’m Christina. I buy gummy vitamins as an excuse to eat candy every morning. I know guac is extra and I hate to admit that it sometimes stops me from ordering it. Gilmore Girls is the soundtrack of my life, especially since the series is now featured on Netflix and binge watching has become socially acceptable. I am a wife to a man who’s just trying to be more like Jesus – training to be a carpenter and periodically growing his beard.
There have been times that I’ve felt like no one else could possibly understand what I’m going through. Then I’d hear about a friend who was experiencing something similar or read a post about that very topic, and I’d realize that we all have more in common than we think. And we are never alone. So I write. I write about the good, the bad, the ugly, the funny, the embarrassing, and the real. For you to know you’re not alone in life’s struggles and joys motivates me to share parts of my life to encourage you.
Writing music is my therapy, whether anyone ever hears it or not. Sometimes songs come out of moments of inspiration and other times they come out of hard work. Either way, I spend a lot of time parsing through lyrics and evaluating melodies to make sure they flow together, speak truth, and awake emotion.
