A little about me:

First and foremost, I am a Christian/Christ follower. I do my best to shine Jesus’ Light and I hope that you see that in me.

My MBTI is ISFJ (if you are into personality stuff we are already kindred spirits!) I am the oldest of nine kids. Six of which were adopted, one from China and five from Colombia. I am a world traveler, and have lived in Shanghai for six months. I look forward to traveling a lot more in the future!

Hello! My name is Carissa Burgess,

I am a blogger, writer, and photographer.

I am all about stories. I believe every picture has a story behind it and every person has a story to tell.

This blog is aimed for Christian women who have a desire to change the world and become a better person. Those who are willing to learn and take action. Who believe in J.O.Y. – Jesus Others You. We all struggle to stay on the narrow path. But we can do it together, it’s all worth it in the end!
