I'm Silent Storm, a crazy Jesus-loving, home-schooled, seventeen-year-old girl who is trying to thrive in her junior year of High school. Oh wait, you probably saw that on my profile already.
Well, anyway, I started this blog in July of 2016 to write about my Life and interests. You'll want to stick around if you are interested in the Bible, photography, DIY projects, books, cooking, short stories (and biographies, thoughts about the world around me, etc.)....well, anything that comes to my mind! You'll also enjoy this blog if you like hearing about life as the oldest in a family of five kids (Give a shout out if you can relate!). Chances are you'll find something you enjoy on this blog!
I love arts and crafts, including painting, crocheting, and sewing. I love cooking and baking. I love to read, and read, and read. I love missions and hope to one day be out on the mission field. This blog is a place for me to share about whatever is on my mind...or "Inside my Brain" as the case may be!
Well, it's time for you to meet my family.
Dad is a computer consultant. He works hard to provide for our family. He also enjoys hanging out with us teaching us about God.
Mom is my mother and teacher. She has home schooled us all since kindergarten, and has also taught me a lot about what it means to be a good wife and mother.
DodgerDog is fifteen. We are always competing against each other...double solitaire, driving, you name it! He is a HUGE baseball fan (specifically the dodgers) and has his own blog. He also likes guitar.
Lego is thirteen. He loves legos, backpacking, uni-cycling, medieval knights, reading, baja bugs, old cars of all sorts, and harmonica, to name a few of his interests!
FireAnt is eleven. She LOVES karate. And dolphins. And panda slipper socks. She is trying to learn to play the trombone.
Jellybean is the youngest. She is seven. She is, in fact, 10 years minus 6 days younger than I am. She is a mix of everyone else. She likes piano, legos, karate, and sometimes the dodgers. She likes to create things and she is trying to read and write (and doing quite well!).
CONGRATS IF YOU'VE MADE IT THIS FAR! :)
