Why this blog?

I have been blogging for as long as I can remember. I started my first blog in 1997, and have continuously had some form of online journal ever since.  (I even met my BFF through blogging!)

About six months ago I was asked to write for my church blog. I write once per month and get to share a little about me and my faith through that outlet. But I quickly wanted more. I wanted the freedom to share my faith, my journey and my personal thoughts as I pleased and not just once a month.

After lots of prayer (and chats with a few close friends) I decided to go ahead and jump in! But first? I needed a name! That one took the longest. I sat on it for a month before deciding on “Bring a Pen” which pays homage to my obsession with all things paper, but also refers to Habakkuk 2:2  > Then the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it…”

If you’re curious about more of my faith journey? My church shared my testimony early last year, and our fabulous videographer let me upload it!
