My name is Daphne Rose.
I love Jesus. I love writing. I love combining them. I am an English major with an emphasis in creative writing and a minor in theology. My heart lies in fiction and the vast worlds that I can create with my fingertips, but I will also write nonfiction when it centers on a topic I love. I aspire to write devotionals, novels, theology books, and maybe even scripts for videos or plays.
My favorite verse is Ecclesiastes 12:13: “Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind.” My favorite pastime other than writing is seeing how the Bible fits together so perfectly and marveling over the greatest saga of all time: The story of Jesus.
My purpose with this blog is to write about the things I love most. I want to show the world how amazing my great God is, and share some of my writing while I’m at it. I’ll post some snippets of my fiction works alongside studies into the deeper aspects of the Bible. Those will be the two main things I post, although I might also write about my personal life from time to time.
A few things about me: I’m a freshman in college, I was homeschooled, and I love history, crafting, drawing, reading, and spending time with my family. My favorite version of the Bible is NIV84, but since those are uncommon nowadays, my second pick is the ESV. I’ve grown up in either nondenominational or Baptist churches. I’m a theology nerd. I’ve lived in four different states in my life, and I have a beagle named Scooby. (If you search far enough down my posts, you might find pictures of him.)
It should be noted that I started this blog a while back with no purpose to it other than writing whatever I wanted and updating people on my fanfiction writing. That was years ago, and a lot has changed. I’ve deleted some of my early blog posts, but others I’ve kept around for sentimental purposes. Those that I don’t care for people to see but I also don’t want to delete are labeled ((ARCHIVED)). You may read them if you wish, but know that they were written a long time ago by a much more immature girl with no vision for her writing. They have had all the tags and categories removed, and I’m hoping that they will get buried under my new posts as I write with a better purpose.
Navigating my site:
Student – This is where I keep posts about my life. They range from photos of my dog to thanking my readers to quick life updates. Essentially, it’s for anything that’s not theological or fictional.
Author – Here I keep my fiction writings. Poems, short stories, prompts, even short paragraphs that I’ve written to inspire myself. The posts can range from thousands of words long to less than a hundred.
Christian – All my theological musings about the nature of God, Biblical truths, and anything else related to my faith. This will most likely be the category I update in most often.
If you have any questions about my writing, my beliefs, or me in general, feel free to comment below. I hope you enjoy reading what I have to say!
