My name is Margriet. I’m a twenty-something blogger from the Netherlands. On this blog I like to share little tidbits I find inspiring, my adventures, my pictures, my writings and some of my work. The most important factor in my life is God, and beside Him the people around me that I love to bits.
The blog title, Child of Light, is not randomly chosen. My name, Margriet (pronounced as Margreet in English) means ‘Child of Light’. Though I haven’t always lived up to this meaning, I try to grow stronger and wiser wandering this earth, taking in more of Him and taking myself less seriously.
When you read along for a little while, you will see I write a lot about personal things. I am diagnosed with depressions and an anxiety disorder. Whilst trying to make sense of my feelings, fears and God’s plan for me in my posts, I hope to help other people who are going trough the same things. Fear and depression can be paralyzing. Sometimes I just ‘dissapear’ from my blog for a few weeks or months – that’s when depression hits hard. But I always come back to writing. It’s like breathing to my soul, and something I know God encourages me to do. If you have any questions about my issues, my thoughts on them or when you could use some help or prayers on that department (or any department, for that matter), I’m here. Just send me an email or contact me trough facebook or Instagram (the links to my social media are on my homepage).
I started this blog because I’ve always loved to write. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been busy writing stories, poems and letters. Lately I haven’t been writing just for me. Every once in a while I write for a christian magazine for teens and young adults, and I absolutely love it. If you’d like me to write for a project of yours, I’d love to help.
Recently I graduated university. I studied Language- and cultural studies, with the major Modern Literature. I hope to make my job out of the language-part of my education and to write. How or where, I leave to the Person Who knows me best. I can’t wait to find out which adventures await me. The outcome of them all will be in Gods hands, and there they will be more than safe.
