The best kind of story is the one that sticks in your soul — whether it’s shared with laughter around the dinner table, woven into the plot of your favorite film, or illustrated in a childhood fairy tale with colors that still seem vivid years later. The stories that stick are the ones that shape us. The thing about stories is that we all have one.
Welcome to mine.
My name is Chelsea.
Writing has always been a processing tool for me. It’s the way I sort through life. From first grade journals, to iPhone notes, to scribbles in hand bound books, to type on a computer screen…these fragments remind me of who I was and who I am in the process of becoming. For me, writing puts a pause on the merry-go-round of life and captures the things that really matter — the moments worth recording that we can never relive.
My story is most likely not the best you’ve ever read. The chapters might seem jumbled, the characters confusing (especially the main one…), and the gaps in action far too wide. I’m authentic and messy, filled with ups and downs and normals. I’m independent and indecisive, leery but adventurous. These are the pieces of a bare-souled twenty-something who is trying to figure it all out, following a God who already has.
So grab your caffeine of choice and join me on the journey. I’m praying for a story that sticks.
