Of an introductory nature...

Hello pilgrims,

It was never my intention to be the last to jump aboard and introduce myself, but, alas, here I am, chiming in very late indeed!

I am Danielle Carey, a soon-to-turn-27-year-old living at home with my family--my parents Wayne and Catherine, my sister Lauren (22), and little brother Tain (9). My other precious sister, Andrea (24), married Sam last year and this year turned us into grandparents, aunts, and uncles, adding darling Amelia Kate to the family. My big little bro Nick lives and works in Western Australia, where we lived before we moved here to Queensland in April this year.

Although we're still settling in after our big move interstate (we're getting used to this, as it becomes increasingly obvious that Dad is a gypsy at heart), I keep busy editing my publication for women of faith, Whatsoever Magazine, and my newsletter for Christian young writers, Words from the Heart. I'm passionate about encouraging young women to find their purpose in Him and am so excited that through these publications I've met some amazing and sold-out women of God.

I love: writing, hunting out the best children's books, keeping a journal, checking the mail, squishing my baby niece, eating chocolate, laughing with my sister, exploring used bookstores, movie nights with my family, and music that points me to the heart of God.

I look forward to getting to know you each better, and cherishing this upward journey with you!
