Hey Friends! My name is Maddie Gustafson, and I’m a 20 year old college student majoring in Psychology at a tiny Christian private school in western Pennsylvania called Grove City College. Like any other college student I have no idea where the Lord is going to lead me in the next 5 or 10 years of my life, therefore I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m just going to hold on for dear life and follow where he leads. I grew up in a tiny little town in Western New York called Lakewood where everybody knew everyone and four generations all still lived on the same street. If I happen to have free time you could probably find me hanging out of a tree somewhere in the middle of the woods in my hammock, drinking hot chocolate at the local coffee shop, or jamming out to any early 2000s throwbacks with my friends in a tiny dorm room.
I may never be an Olympic athlete, the next American Idol, or the first female president but none of which are for lack of trying. I do however, have a great passion for writing and helping young women understand the worth and purpose they have in Jesus. My biggest dream in this life is for women everywhere to know they are so loved, have immense potential, and to feel that they truly are enough. Sometimes life can get really tough, and it’s in those moments that we finally realize there is only one thing left to grip onto for hope and his name is Jesus. My prayer is that as you read this blog that Jesus would reveal himself to you in a new way and he would make your broken heart whole again (not by my works but his alone).
