A bit about Me & the Blog

I realized yesterday that I did not share my purpose for starting this blog or really anything about myself. So here goes....

First off I should tell you a bit about myself. I am a senior music education major in my last semester before student teaching. I live at home and commute to school for the most part living with my parents and two fluffy puppies, whom I love. Most importantly I love Jesus. I paint and write poetry to release who I am and how I feel/see the world. and myself. By no means am I perfect and I struggle a lot to be the woman I want to be. I am a recovering from church hurts, and searching for grace and truth about what it means to live in the Body of Christ and be an individual. I want to live my life running after Him no matter what others say. My goal is to follow Him and no one else. (Again not perfect at this, I tend to learn things the hard way!) I think that is me in a nutshell.

This is a piece I am currently working on titled Vulnerable © 2012
So why did I start this blog? I started this blog to share my heart and struggles with others in a meaningful and impactful way that show my REAL life in love with Jesus. I want to share with others that living for Christ is a messy thing and maybe help others and myself know that we aren't alone in this. I titled my blog Carliann Reviewed because I see this as a place to take some time and review what life has placed before me. You can expect to find paintings, poetry, and questions here.
