The Journey Begins..

Welcome ya’ll!

I am so thankful and glad you have stumbled upon my blog. My name is Steph Vandermeulen, a.k.a, Steph Vandy. I was born in Pennsylvania but was raised and currently living in Upstate New York.

Writing has been a hidden dream and passion of mine for many years. I have always been interested in starting my own blog, but it was not until recently that God had laid it on my heart to write more and most importantly, share my experiences that I have endured. My path has been bumpy and a lot of unexpected turns, especially recently, but the one constant in my life has been Jesus. Life can have many seasons, of tremendous joy and deep heartache; and maybe a little bit of both. Although our circumstances can make us feel defeated, thankfully, our current circumstances are not our true identity or our future. Our true identity and worth lie in Jesus alone and that is a beautiful truth! I want to share that beautiful truth with you through my own personal faith walk. The one thing that my struggles keep pointing me back to is Jesus and He has made the largest impact on my heart in many ways.

I want this blog to be a space of encouragement and hope for all who need it. My hopes are that by sharing my encounters and experiences in my faith walk, that it helps even one soul out there, who has or is going through something similar. I want this to be a space where we can all share and be there for one another. We have all been through different experiences but the emotions we feel, are the same. We can all relate to hurt, grief, sadness, joy,  betrayal, change and love.

Whatever led you here, I am grateful for you and thank you for starting this new journey with me!

Love and light,
