A dream made real: Starting Beloved

The purpose of this blog is to share stories that expose the beautiful reality of the world.

We are all beloved. We all have stories to tell. We all experience seasons of life worth exploring.

This does not mean perfection. If we are to learn from one another, we must tell our beautiful, beloved stories authentically. If we are to empathize and understand each other, we must all come to the table without judgement.

I don’t have to have all the answers, and I don’t have to always have it right. I write what I know, and I listen to others to know more.

This blog is a dream made real, and I am excited to share it with you.

For years I have toiled and dabbled in the idea of writing and curating a blog. Writing is my passion and lead me to my undergraduate education in journalism. But, it took listening to the world around me and patience for the right season and idea.

I followed other dreams until the idea for Beloved Journal came to me.

I am going to work to authentically tell my story and empower others to share theirs as well.

Now more than ever the world seems to need more spaces for authenticity. For listening and finding common ground. For realizing that at the end of the day, we are all beloved members of the community.
