I sat at the bottom of my grandparents stair case and started writing.  In the all encompassing logic of my seven years I believed if I filled up my beautiful journal I’d have a book.  I’ve been in love with reading and writing for as long as I can remember.  From my father’s voice reading through chapters of the Narnia Chronicles after dinner to me and a book curled up for hours in an arm-chair.  The love affair is far from over.  My husband wryly comments on my ability to eat books.

I have my degree in Journalism from Asbury University.    My dream was to write stories from developing countries.  But crippled by doubt, fear and depression I dumped any dream I had of writing and ran in the opposite direction.  Five years later God graciously dropped a grenade into my life and blew my world apart.  I adore Him for it.  Now I’m throwing everything I have into following His call on my life.  I write because of the love of words, but more than that, I write because I’m in love with a God who is as mysterious as He is fantastically accessible.

I’m pursuing my dream of writing a book.  I write alongside dear friends over coffee.  And I work part-time as a writer for a nonprofit, Children of the Nations.  You can follow my work at http://www.cotni.org/staff/heather-ostalkeiwicz.

    You ladies are awesome and I look forward to reading what amazing things God has in store for you.

  2. This is so amazing. All three of you have deep soul felt cravings for creating, whether it be writing, acting or art. I idea of collaborating with your blogs on the same site is so interesting. I have been and still am in the places you are and journeying through the path as well. Perhaps we can share our discoveries. 🙂

  3. Thank you both, ladies! I am just now reading over this page again:) I am very blessed to finally step into this new life I have discovered and give God all the credit! And I’m very glad to share with Sammie and Heather. On my own, I had left behind my creative self in my childhood. Cheers to rediscovery and fearlessness!
