my story.

welcome to my little blog. 
i'm rebekah.
pleased to meet you!

i'm a 20-year-old in the middle of some life-altering transformations.
feel free to join me as i blossom.

what is clarity in creation?
the name stands for two driving forces in my life. one is the clarity i've found from my actions resulting in creation, either in the kitchen, in writing, or in other's lives. the other is the clarity i've found from knowing i am a creation of God, a promise i treasure dearly.

this blog has a purpose: to chart challenges, celebrate victories, and most importantly, encourage those around me to live with passion, no matter the circumstance.

i have a story: i've endured painful things, made plenty of mistakes, and won't stop striving to learn from them. i'm grateful because they shape me into who i am. they inspire me to keep growing.

i have a secret, and i like to share it: "I am convinced that neither death nor life... nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus."
romans 8:38-39

(yes... even about THAT).
shoot me a line at nelsonrr[at]mymail[dot]vcu[dot]edu, or drop me a comment.
i'd be honored.

  1. shut up you're from richmond?!?!?!? I just graduated from UR! I will be there a LOT between now and the end of may, so we should totes meet up for a blogger meal!

  2. Hi Rebekah! It sounds like you are working towards some amazing changes - congrats to you for that :)
    It's always nice to meet another TJ's junkie - it's one of my favorite stores. I could go nuts in there and probably blow my entire paycheck on food!

  3. Hey! Thanks for checking out my site! I will be back to check around but I actually had a fibromyalgia scare about a month ago. It made me do a lot of reading about how the foods you choose can help manage pain. I am excited to continue to read about your journey's! Take care!

  4. Omg you're gorgeous!! Lovin' the hair on you girlie! And I'm lovin' your blog too! I'd love to join you as you take each step forward and live life as you deserve to!

  8. Thanks for posting on my blog! I am so encouraged by your determination to beat Fibro and look forward to following your blog. I know just how it feels and I am just starting to explore healthier ways to treat it with lifestyle changes.

  9. Hey beautiful. I never knew much about Fibro until just now when I googled it some more. With a healthy diet and lifestyle, I'm sure you can manage it. You sound like you like a well balanced life, something I am trying to strive for myself. I'll be looking to learn from you ;)

  10. Hi Rebekah!

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. :) Thanks so much; I absolutely love healthy eating. This may sound cheesy, but it makes me happy knowing that everything I put into my body has a purpose and will be for my own good.

    That's awesome that you were homeschooled! I really enjoy it and it gives me a lot of freedom.

    Can't wait to read more!

  17. Wow, Rebekah,

    Your scripture is my all-time favorite verse!
    I took a drug overdose at 17 and cried out to God and He brought me back from the dead. So yeah, not even death separates us from His love, and mercy reaches beyond the grave when teenagers make dumb mistakes.
