Jess Lyons wrote her first book in Young Author’s Club in the fifth grade. She doesn’t remember what it was about, but since then, she hasn’t stopped writing. Few people know her name, and she hasn’t yet published much, but she writes on! Most of her days are spent with two young boys, exploring their city and enjoying their little, blue house. Part-time, she teaches writing to college freshman and finds this work helpful in growing her own abilities.

The stories and reflections here are mostly for her personal discipline and practice. She strives to write with honesty, beauty, and truth, and in doing so, point readers’ eyes upward. If you happen upon these words and read them, thank you. If you enjoy them or resonate with them, thank God.
