Hello friends! I’m Savannah, friends call me Sav. 26. Free spirit, yet grounded in God alone. Thanks for taking some time to visit my little blog and even more so for reading some of my stories. I’ll tell ya, a lot of heart goes into them.
Though I’m a mountain gal at heart, I currently live in Dallas, TX. I work in the special education field. I’ve been working with autistic and other special needs children since 2013 and there is nothing more rewarding in my life than seeing kiddos making progress towards a better life. I’m also in the middle of completing my teacher’s license in the state of Tay-has! I have dreams of traveling to different countries to work with orphans, special needs children, and experience more of what God says about helping those in need.
Jesus is my all. I attend Trinity Dallas Church where it has definitely made the city feel like home sweet home ever since I moved to Dallas in January of 2016.
I have a chronic illness called systemic lupus erythematosus. It’s an autoimmune disease where my bodies immune system attacks it’s own tissue causing inflammatory, painful symptoms mainly in my joints. You can read that whole story here.
My friends & family keep my heart full and my boyfriend is God’s gift to me. It’s pretty easy to continue writing about all the different things I’m passionate about or enjoy doing, but I’d much rather talk over a cup of dark roasted coffee if you’re in the Dallas area (or anywhere in the mountains, I’ll fly up).
Feel free to read all about my little POUR for POVERTY project where I give crafted bags to the homeless. I believe strongly in the power of doing small things with great love and watching the fruit of that love come to life by giving from the heart. Let’s have the heart of a whale and pour love for the poor.

She is More, My Encounter with a Real Angel
“My blog is a place for people to come to just as they are and share in the beauty that comes from sharing the stories of our hearts with others. I noticed my blog started to grow when I started to become really real in my writing; when I didn’t hide my heart and I was utterly honest. I write because I simply want to encourage others that whatever season we find ourselves in that may be a struggle, we can come out of it by the grace of God. I believe there is beauty in everyone’s story and there is even more beauty when we can speak life to each other in both the trying and joyous seasons of our lives. I blog because my heart will never stop going through different chapters, and as long as my life is still flipping through its own book, I will use whatever chapter I’m in to speak love and encouragement into others going through similar walks. It’s all about climbing one mountain at a time and knowing that you’re not alone on the journey.” – Story On, (Why do you blog project, 2016)
