Hello — happy you’re here! Her name is Erica, but her good friends call her E. I feel optimistic about you thus far, so you can call her E.
E is from Cincinnati, Ohio, a recent graduate of the University of Alabama, a soon-to-be Fulbright scholar in Bulgaria, and a beloved daughter. After a few years of studying Finance and Economics in the deep South, she took the logical step to teach high school English in Eastern Europe.
She’s a Young Life leader and has a passion for the ministry that changed her life. She loves running by the water, road trips, eating big breakfasts, and wearing too many rings. Jesus is the holder of her heart, yet iced coffee, golden retrievers, and dark chocolate are close competition. She’s a culprit of holding hugs for a second too long and has experienced the “release tap” more than once. Her life is a testament to the faithfulness and the strength of the Lord as He delicately opens our clenched fists.
A believer in authenticity, she believes words heal. She believes that we have the power to impact people and change the world through the threading of syllables. Her life is a product of an overwhelmingly generous, grace-giving, and loving God.
She also is privileged to write for The Rising Blog, a branch of the Rethink Creative Group. Rethink is doing some amazing things, check them out here.
