Isabelle Ingalls is a 20-year old writer seeking to see the reminder and reflection of Christ’s glorious Gospel in all of life. As homeschool graduate, when she’s not writing, you can find her working with children, singing and dancing around the house, and discussing theology with friends over hot chocolate. A writer for both The Rebelution and Top Christian Books, she shares on singleness, adoption, Narnia, thunderstorms, stories, and any other adventures she has as we discover what Christian living really means.
Who also hates talking in the third person, so let’s try this again.
My name is Isabelle, and I am a reader of all good books (especially Lewis and Tolkien), lover of all good discussions (theology, life, philosophy), attempter-at-playing all good piano music (although picking out melodies is probably a better description), memorizer of all good verses (not that I have memorized them all, but I’d like to!), singer and dancer to all good music (randomly and loudly around the house), hater of all good coffee (sorry, more of a tea/hot chocolate person), citizen of the best of all good states (Texas), and the user of too-many-to-be-good parentheses (sorry), who strives to run harder and harder after Jesus every day, bringing glory to His name in all that I do.
This blog is an exploration of how God is enough in every part of life. Theologically, of course, but in other ways as well. What does it look like to love God with all my heart, soul, and mind? How do I know God intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually? And how do I live in reflection of who He is and who He wants me to be?
I don’t presume to have any answers. I just think better when I write. I can corral my thoughts, make them be orderly and go somewhere on paper. Or screen. Or whatever this is. And it won’t necessarily be deep. I might want to organize my thoughts on the worldview of super-hero movies sometime. Or I might even want to just vent the random thoughts I had, or to keep the memory of a particularly lovely moment.
But this holds me accountable, and ensures that I am living life purposely, paying attention to every show I watch, every speech I hear, every subtle worldview I find. So I’m writing, to help myself to think clearer, to think deeper, and to enjoy the wonder of life.
I want to see everything else through the light of Christ.
“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the Sun has risen, not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” – C. S. Lewis
