The Girl

oh, hi there…


I’m Rebekah, your fellow dreamer with her head in the clouds. This is my blog where I share writings, snippets of life, reflections, poetry, photography, ponderings, and tales of God’s goodness and grace. I’m so glad you took the time to stop by today!

I’m just a crafty young girl with way too many ideas buzzing around her head. I’m a homeschooled Christian who loves her family, writing, blogging, photography, and most of all, Jesus.

I’m your average INFP: creative, sensitive, thoughtful, daydreaming, overthinking, compassionate, full of smiles, always laughing, always crying, loving life.

I’m a writer, and I’ll always have some new story idea buzzing around in my head. I hope to be a published author someday, but that will only come true if I quit procrastinating (please help). I adore everything about poetry: rhyming or free verse, iambic or trochaic, Emily Dickinson or Robert Frost, reading it or writing it. Poetry flows in my veins!


I l.o.v.e. capturing the little moments around me and the precious instants of life through the lenses of a camera. Photography and film are just both so addicting. I really, really want to be a filmmaker someday, and whenever I get the chance to videotape everything and anything without my siblings getting annoyed, I’m happy.


I still play with my twenty+ stuffed animals, whose lives you can learn about over at my other (and main) blog. I can never get tired of shooting them! (with a camera, of course. XD) I’m also obsessed with miniature crafting and have by now made quite a few tiny things.

Although I wouldn’t exactly classify myself as a bookworm, you can still often find me with my nose buried in a book. Some of my favorites are The Bronze Bow by Elizabeth George Speare, The Lord Of The Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, and…just recently, Children Of The Storm by Natasha Vins.

Canva is my food, and Picmonkey is my water. I have an uncanny knack at being a horrible designer, but do I still love designing anyways? Hahaha yes. Pretty graphics and beautifully designed featured images make my heart beat. In fact, I can design a free blog header or button for you — check that out here!

Did I mention that I love computer programming? Give me all the Javascript, CSS, HTML, Python, Ruby, bring it on.

I use way too many strikethroughs, (parentheses), and emojis 😀 😀 😀 . I also can’t spell restaurant without using Spellcheck, for some odd reason.


I AM A FOODIE. I LOVE FOOD. WHO SHALL FANGIRL OVER FOOD WITH ME. Shall we talk about brownies? Or pie? Or cake? Or stir-fry? Or…aesthetic food photography that makes me cry? (I didn’t make that rhyme on purpose, I promise).

I like to consider myself an artsy person, although my two older sisters are definitely better than me. I do enjoy drawing, doing crafts, making cards (a.k.a. copying designs from other people), and bullet journaling (a.k.a. dying over people’s calligraphy, etc.)


I love the little things in life, including:

  • dark chocolate
  • the sound of rain pattering on the roof
  • the twittering of birds in the morning
  • bokeh and light streaks
  • the promise of the Bible
  • stormy sunsets
  • comfy sweaters
  • Romans 8:38-39


But the only thing you really needed to know about me is that I’m a Christian, and I want to change the world through the power of God’s love. My best friend Jesus has changed my life and turned my world upside down — He thinks I’m worth dying for!

  1. Hi Rebeka! Your blog is soooo cute, love it! (especially the name!) Canva is practically my best friend; although sometimes I do cheat and use Picmonkey. 😂 I feel like taking pictures of food is a weird thing everyone secretly likes lol! When did you start your blog?/

    • Hi Sarah! Aww, thanks! My sister was actually the one who thought of the name, and I stole it. *malicious grin* Yes, ikr??? I do prefer it a lot over Picmonkey, but I admit I sometimes cheat too. XD And ahh, yes. FOOD PHOTOGRAPHYYY. *fangirls wildly* I started this blog a few months ago, I think, some time after I started my toy blog, but only recently began actively posting on it!

      P.S. I hope you don’t mind me using your graphics for the Candy Book Tag without asking. 🙂 I didn’t know they were yours at first, and so I just used them. It was later that I realized I should have given credit and hurriedly linked to your blog. 😀 I guess asking first pretty much slipped my mind…they’re gorgeous, by the way!

    • Oh, okay! I just got a Khan Academy account a few weeks ago…I really need to try some more of their courses! Thanks so much for the recommendations. 🙂


  2. Hi, Rebekah!
    Well….on a more positive note, 😉 if you have the time, would you like to beta my new novella, Risers? I have info on your blog, and nothing personal about you will be publicized!

  3. Wow, we have a lot in common! I also love blogging, food lol, photography, my family, poetry, sweaters, and I’m a day dreamer, Christian, and couldn’t go long without Pic Monkey. It’s so nice to “meet” you!

    Have a great day!
