Thank you for your visit!


“The Joys and Trials of a Christian Teen” was created by me, a Christian, female, African-American teenager navigating through a journey called life.

Ever since a young age, I have loved God. He has given me many gifts, and one of them is to write. In fact, aside from this blog, I am currently in the process writing a novel that I plan to publish, someday. Additionally, I post several pieces of my shorter pieces of writing on this blog.

A few of the hobbies on my long list include reading, singing, making art, having family Bible studies, and as you can probably tell, blogging. Like most teens, I love having fun, but still living life as God sees fit. I want people to see His light when they see me. And a huge part of that is spreading the Good Word.

Whether you are a fellow teenager or a tweenager, Christian or not, wanting advice on how to deal with every-day topics: Christianity, mental health, self care, living in God’s image, etc., or an adult parenting a teen who wants to see our interpretation on the world, then this is the perfect site for you!
