About Me

My name’s Becca.

I call myself a Christian (Christ-follower, Jesus Freak, Two-by-Four, whatever), but lately I’ve realized I’m not as close to God as I want to be.

With this blog, I hope to change that.

I hope to get back into doing daily devotionals, or at least learning something every day, and sharing those lessons.

I’m hoping to grow in my faith, and to help others grow through my growth.

Want more detailed info about me? 

I graduated from college in May of 2013 with a degree in Media Communications.

I’m living at home while looking for a full-time job.

I ♥ reading, writing, learning, listening, spending time alone (and sometimes with people), and music.

I’m at that awkward stage of life where my head is screaming “I’m not a student, but I’m not a leader, and yet I am.” I hate it, but I’m learning to get through it.

I’m not sure what I want to do with the rest of my life.

My first two years of college, I was pretty active in church and youth group: I helped with services some Sundays and hung out with 12-14 year olds on youth group nights.

I don’t have too many really close friends (though I have nearly 200 Facebook friends), but there are maybe five or six girls I consider best friends.

I struggle a lot with insecurity and feeling like I fit in.

I don’t feel like I fit in, actually.

I feel really awkward around people.

I prefer the Internet, chatting online, writing journal entries when I’m really emotional.

Notebooks don’t judge.

I have really bad vision. I wear glasses because I hate the thought of contacts.

I’m kind of anal, bordering on slight OCD. Depending on the situation. When I actually get around to cleaning my room, stuff goes in certain spots. You’re not allowed to help me put stuff away; nothing personal, I’m just anal.

I used to work at a pharmacy/drug store; did for almost four years. I didn’t work in the actual pharmacy part of the store… except to deliver stuff to people on occasion.

I have this obsession with accents, especially Australian accents. One of my friends is determined to meet her husband in Scotland. I want to go to Australia.

You can blame this guy and this show for that obsession, pretty much.

I would like Adam Hills a lot more if he loved Jesus and didn’t curse, but he’s rather funny. I ❤ this video a lot, and would probably move to Australia if that was really their anthem. I’ve even found two houses that are possibilities. 😛

I don’t like sports. Much at all.

I prefer being inside watching TV, surfing the Net, reading, and writing.

Ummm… Yep.

I write.

A lot.

It’s my therapy.

I also take and find random photos, which I enhance on Picnik.

If you’d like to contact me via email, this can be done one of two ways:

1. The email I created specifically for this blog: respectivating@gmail.com

OR, as of December 2010,

2. TWITTER! Follow me at @respectivating!

OR, as of June 2011,

3. Tumblr! Find me here or here.
I’m on the second one a lot more than the first…

  1. Hey Becca,

    My name’s Grey Gillette. I made and author the blog A Hint of Grey. I really like your bio here and, in fact, it’s rather creepy how similar we are. But I just wanted to thank you for listing me on your “to visit” tab and thank you for the “traffic” to my blog that you have provided. Also, your website is simply beautiful and I really enjoy all that you have written. Your story and your message is both inspiring and amazing. Thank you for you help in my life right now and for your impact on anyone who reads this.

    We seem to have a lot in common! I’m also a devoted Christian, however just rekindled my relationship with Jesus & was saved with my boyfriend about a month ago. We both struggle with everyday temptations and hardships, and our faith is still a work in progress. I’m very happy to have found a like-minded Christian in the blog world as well 😉
    I’m also a junior in college! (Well now a senior…) I look forward to reading your blog 😀

  4. Hey, I found your site by searching the lyrics to a song I heard at bible camp almost 6 years ago..it goes “I wanna dive in deeper/swim a little farther in Your sea of saving grace/so let Your current pull me/mercy wash right through me till I only see Your face” Where did you hear that?? I heard it at Lake Beauty Bible camp and was wondering if you were there too! That would be awesome!!

  5. I would’ve been in I think 10th grade in 2007. Yeah, I graduated in ’09, so about 10th grade. I would’ve been 16. That was one of my last years at camp, which was sad. I went almost every year starting in like 1st grade. But it’s cool to think that we both went!! 🙂
