Hi friends, I’m Erinn.
Welcome to my blog, Who Knows Grace – often referred to as WKG.
I created this blog as a way to release the creativity in my heart. I’ve always loved writing. I’ve kept journals since I learned to write, and once I was introduced to blogging, I knew I wanted to do it. For a minute, I got caught up in the desire to make money blogging. I started posting photos I thought would get people’s attention instead of posting photos I liked and saying what I wanted. I struggled with this for months. I read as many “How To Start a Blog” posts as I could. They all talked about being consistent and posting what your audience wanted to hear. So I tried to post as often and consistently as I could. I tried to write about things that would be helpful to my “target audience”. I started to veer toward fashion and beauty – which felt different, challenging, and exciting. I liked going to different places in fun outfits and asking my husband to take my picture. But after a month or two, this felt inauthentic. It caused fights with my husband because I was frustrated with my photos not looking right. I started to doubt my abilities and began to resent blogging. Then I lost my brother and subsequently, myself. So I wrote about that experience and this little spark grew in my heart again, but grief can be consuming and my heart was too tired to open up to the world.
Now, it’s starting to awaken again.
A little more about me: I love Jesus. He saved my life in every way possible.
I’ve been married 4 years to my absolute best friend. I live in Columbus, Ohio. I grew up here, but moved to Salt Lake City in 2016. We lived there for almost 3 years and now we’re back in Ohio. We made incredible, irreplaceable friends in SLC and miss them every day. I have 5 tattoos and will definitely have more soon. I don’t have any kids yet, but I want at least 4 (yes I know that’s a lot). I’ve been in therapy for two years and I have never appreciated something more. I think everyone should go to therapy at least once – life is too hard to not have help. I love zodiac signs, personality tests, and anything else that can help me learn about myself and other people. I’m a (classic) Leo & an ESTJ.
A few of my favorite things: candles, journals/planners, worship music, old photos, going out to eat, decorating a new space, big sweaters, and helping people understand themselves better.
My deepest desire is to provide comfort for others who have experienced what I have, or anything close. I pray you find comfort in my words.
Thank you for being here & reading my story.
You are loved.
