Welcome to One Mountain at a Time

D152AE8C-87CF-4B09-8BF3-03CA1A248A18Hello 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 the DFW area with my husband and our kitty cat, Maple. I work in the special education field and am very close to finishing my teaching certification in the state of Texas! 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.

Jesus is my all. My imperfect, overly sensitive, sinful self is proof I literally cannot do life without Him. May we all mature into our neediness for the Father and each other.

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 husband 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 DFW area (or anywhere in the mountains, I’ll fly up).

I am a contributing writer for The Mighty, you can check out my most recent articles by clicking the link below!

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)

“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self-centered. Forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. Be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies. Succeed anyway. If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you. Be honest and sincere anyway. What you spend years creating, others could destroy overnight. Create anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, some may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today, will often be forgotten. Do good anyway. Give the best you have, and it will never be enough. Give your best anyway. In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway. ” – Mother Teresa

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”- Mother Teresa

“It’s a wonder I haven’t abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart.” -Anne Frank

“A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” – Forest Witcraft
