About Me

Hi, there, stranger! My name is Micaiah, and I’m glad you’ve stumbled across my corner of the internet. Stay awhile, will you? But first, we should get to the reason you came to this page… To learn more about me.  

I am, first and foremost, a daughter of the one true King. I’m saved by His grace and loved by Him. I can ask for nothing more. It is my deepest desire to glorify my heavenly Father through the words I write and the life I live.  

Speaking of writing…. You’ve probably already guessed it, but I just so happen to be an aspiring YA Christian writer. =) I dabble in all sorts of genres; historical, fantasy, and contemporary are a few I’ve tried out so far. I have a passion for stories about real people and real life, real grace and real mercy, real love and a very real and loving God who can fix anything. 

Since I’m homeschooled, I have plenty of time for adventures all over the world. I’ve been to fifteen countries and have visited almost half of the USA in my family’s silver Airstream so far! I live with three little sisters, two awesome parents, and one little brother. Oh, and there’s a boxer puppy that wanders about with us as well. =) 

When I’m not lost in the stories I write, you can find me spending time with my wonderful friends, reading just about anything YA Christian fiction, cheering on the Chicago Cubs, and drinking lots and lots of salted caramel hot chocolate. I'm known to have weaknesses for notebooks of all types, typewriters, good books, and making and eating practically anything with high amounts of sugar and/or chocolate. Especially ice cream. And brownies. And cookies. See what I mean? xD

Now it’s your turn! Introduce yourself in the comments below-I’d love to get to know you! =)

  1. Love your About Me page! You kinda' know me already. . . Hopefully someday we'll get to meet each other in person!!

    You're a Twenty-One Pilots fan too? What even! I didn't think he was that popular, but I keep finding fans. I guess I might not count as a 'fan' exactly. . . I've only heard a few of his songs (mostly from his album "Blurry Face"), but I've really enjoyed them. ;-)

    1. Thanks, Hanna! =) I hope we can meet each other one day too! It would be EPIC.

      Yeah, but all I really listen to is their newest album, Blurryface. AND IT IS AWESOME. I do really enjoy them, and some of the songs fit with my novel Runaway's playlist. =)

      What's your favorite song of theirs?

      Delete
    2. Their song "Fairly Local" made me think of a character from one of my (unwritten) stories! They sing great story music, if you know what I mean. ;-) So I really like "Fairly Local" (it feels like 'my song'), and I also really like "Ride" and "Lane Boy". I'm not really a fan of rap music, but his lyrics in the rap parts of those two are SO GOOD!
      What's your favorite?

    3. Also, which ones fit with your story??

    4. My favorite.... #toohardilovetwentyonepilots

      The songs that fit with my story are "Fairly Local" and "Heavydirtysoul." "Message Man" would fit too. They do have really great music!

    5. "Fairly Local" fits yours too? I love it! ;-)

    1. Thanks! =) I've been to Luxembourg, Belgium (I lived in Belgium for about two and half years), England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, France, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Uganda, Austria, the USA, and Rwanda. I'm surprised myself, and just realized that I forgot Rwanda and Austria when writing this bio... *hides face*

  4. Whoa! I love traveling! Which countries have you been to? I'm really curious. XD

    1. I absolutely adore traveling too, although I must admit, there is no place like home. =) I've traveled to Luxembourg, Belgium (I lived in Belgium for about two and half years, hence all the European countries), England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, France, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, Uganda, Austria, the USA, and Rwanda.

    2. That's awesome! Might I ask where you were born? You have an unusual name which is why I ask. XD

      Delete
    3. Totally! =) I was born in Joplin, Missouri. Haha, I do have an unusual name, but it's a name I'm proud to have. Micaiah was an OT prophet who prophesied against King Ahab in 1 Kings 22:1-28. Pretty cool, huh? =) I really like your name!

  5. I LOVE notebooks, there is no such thing as too many notebooks! I have piles and piles of notebooks I'm probably never going to get around to writing in!! But my favorite one is my white one with gold stripes that says Write on the cover! I also love Nf and for King and Country, too!

    1. No there isn't-although there is such a thing as too few. ;) I have written in at least a few pages of all of my notebooks-and I'm constanly adding more to my collection. Oh, that sounds like a lovely notebook! They are AMAZING, aren't they? =) What's your favorite song?

  6. Just wanted to drop a line and say that I love your blog, and I love your name--"Micaiah" sounds so unique!

    1. Aw, thank you so much! =) I'm actually named after an OT prophet (named Micaiah... obviously=)) who prophesied against King Ahab.

  7. I'm Narnian too, and I also hold citizenship in Middle-Earth. Just wanted to say your blog looks fabulous, I love your writing, and you have SUCH a cool name! (I actually have been through the wardrobe in real life, so I can claim Narnian ethnicity. :)

    1. That's awesome! *high fives fellow citizens* Thank you so much! =) I've been through a wardrobe at Focus on the Family, but not the real one. I can try every one I see though....

    2. When you least expect it, maybe you'll find one with no back . . .

  8. Adorable blog, Micaiah! I feel you when it comes to having too many notebooks-they're just so tempting! Yes, I love twenty-one Pilots and Lauren Daigle.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thank you! +) It is-and there are so many different ones it's hard to pick just one! Oh, they're amazing! What is your favorite Twenty One Pilots song? Your favorite Lauren Daigle one? I know, hard questions... xD

      Delete
    2. Ohhh, definitely hard questions. For Twenty One Pilots I'd have to say The Judge or We Don't Believe What's On TV. And for Lauren Diagle possibly Come Alive... I'm really not sure. How about you?

      Delete
    3. THAT IS A HARD QUESTION. I really like "Message Man" and "Fairly Local." And for Lauren Daigle, I like "First" and "Trust In You."

      Delete
    4. Nice, those are good ones. Especially Message Man. Have you heard of The Lumineers?

      Delete
    5. Thanks! I have, and I've listened to a bit of their music. =) Do you like them?

  9. Hi Micaiah! I just had a quick question. What made you start your blog? And how did you go about doing it?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Well, around the time I started writing, I discovered a writing blog, Taking My Time (http://takingmytime.rothfuss.us), and had the inspiration to start my own blog. I wanted to share my writing and my faith with the world, not to mention get a jumpstart on creating my writing platform. =)

      First, I picked a platform. I used Blogger at first, but later I switched to Wordpress and now I'm using Blogger again. =) Then I started posting content. As time went on, I learned more about design and such.

      I hope I answered all your questions? =) If you have any other questions, please let me know! Thanks for commenting!

  10. You have SUCH a gorgeous blog. Wow. I'm definitely sticking around, and I'm a new follower for sure.

  13. Hi Micaiah! It's nice to meet you! I'm really interested in your blog, and I'm looking to start one of my own. Though, I'm not quite sure how. I also love writing and am actually working on a book now! (Side note: I'm also homeschooled, and the experience is awesome!) My parents are Brent and Barbra Fields. I know you might not know them, but they are old friends of your parents. I love how you set this blog up, and I hope when I figure it out, I can do the same. Have a good day and a Happy Thanksgiving, God bless you!

    1. Hi, Ada! Wow, that's so cool that our parents were friends! =D My parents remember yours fondly. =) It's very nice to meet you! Thank you so much for stopping by. =)

      That is very exciting that you are looking to start your own blog! Blogging is a wonderful experience, and the blogging community around here couldn't be better. If you would like any help or tips on starting a blog, please let me know!

      Wow, you like writing too! =D That's awesome! What is your book about, may I ask? AND you're homeschooled? That's amazing! =) I love being homeschooled and wouldn't trade the experience for public school.

      Happy (late) Thanksgiving, and God bless you too! I hope to hear from you again!

    2. Thanks Micaiah! To start off, my book is on elves, (I really like fantasy stuff!) and they have really awesome names. I'm self-publishing and if you want, I could get a copy of the book for you. I don't mind if you would rather not though.

      The second thing, for the blog, I got lost. The website gave me no instructions what-so-ever so I didn't really know what to do from the beginning. I managed to come up with a name and the layout and I got it on the internet, but there is nothing on it. I'm working on the page where I introduce myself right now.

      I wouldn't trade the home school experience either! I have been pubic schooled though up to fourth grade, then in fifth grade my mom pulled me out. Homeschooled life is much better then public school! Have you been homeschooled your whole life or have you been to pubic school?

      Happy (or merry?) early Christmas! Have a good day!

    3. I enjoy the fantasy genre as well-and elves?! That sounds really cool! I would love to get my hands on a copy. =)

      Starting a blog can be very confusing. I'm glad that you were able to figure it out. If you ever have any questions or need help at all, please, let me know.

      I've never been to public school before; my mom has homeschooled me my entire life. I am now a sophomore in high school and am loving the flexibility and learning experience that homeschool gives.

      Merry early Christmas to you, Ada! I am so glad to have (virtually) met you. =)

      Delete
    4. I will make sure to order a copy especially for you!

      As for the blog, thanks!

      Your lucky. Public school is drama drama drama! I have never been to the public middle school or high school, but from what I've heard, elementary is probably the best, because once you go to middle school, there's more bullies, people tease you, and people start dating at a REALLY young age...

      I'm glad to have met you too! Are you doing anything for the holidays?

      Delete
    5. Aw, thanks! =)

      I've heard that public school is a lot of drama-lots of craziness, but I suppose that drama can happy anywhere. I'm happy to say that I haven't seen too much, but drama can be inescapable once you reach high school.

      My family will be staying home for Christmas doing the usual. Presents, big dinner, church, cake for Jesus... What about you?

      Delete
  14. Your welcome!

    We spend time with family, open presents, have dinner, church, and caroling. Most of that is in the evening.

    Merry Christmas and happy new year! I'm excited for 2018!
