Hello there! My name is Maddie. Welcome to My Hope Filled Joy.

When I was a little girl, I always wanted to do big things. To affect and inspire people. To make a change.

There was only one problem, I was a sweet little introvert, afraid to speak because of what others might think, or what they might say.

Today, I’m still that sweet little introvert, but I’ve grown into my own, learning to speak out for the truth, to defend the lost causes, and to love well.

I started this blog as a way to speak up for my favorite ministries (and because what 13 year old wouldn’t want a blog!)  I took you all on my adventures for a little while, showing you both my passion for Jesus and people, and also my little life.

Now, at 16, I want to do a little bit more.  That’s why My Hope Filled Joy is sort of shifting it’s focus, from a life blog, to an encouragement blog.  I’ve always loved to write, and now I want to use what I’m learning to help and inspire you.

I don’t promise too much; my story’s not that unique.  The great part is, my story is valuable because it’s a story of the grace of God, and the power to change the world.

Come join me.  I hope you’ll leave inspired, and with just a tad bit of hope filled joy.
