Hi! I’m Kaitlyn [Hiltz] Parker. Daughter, wife, fur mama, sister, friend, writer, brand manager + business owner living in Virginia Beach, VA.
This blog has been so many places over the years and has certainly evolved over time. Honestly? I love that about it. I could look back and cringe with thoughts of those days (and sometimes I do). I could look too far forward and get overwhelmed (often guilty of that, too). And of course, I could compare my journey to everyone else’s who chooses to share aspects of their life on the hallows of the internet (or not).
But you know what? I believe in the power of using your words. As Flannery O’Connor said it best: “I write because I don’t know what I think until I read what I say.”
Writing has helped put me on a steady road of learning that you can’t look around at everyone else’s journey and think you’re in the wrong place. You’re not. You’re in the right place, right on time.
Whatever you do, it’s about cultivation, stewardship, and an outpouring of grace when you could have sworn the grace-tank went on ‘E’ miles and miles ago.
It’s this organic, ever-changing, often unpredictable aspect of growth that attracts and motivates me to keep going and putting out my best work – “my best” looking slightly different every day, naturally.
It’s my bold declaration to drop the baggage of perfectionism, ‘too much’, and ‘not enough’, in exchange for worthy, loved, and made completely whole.
Discovering whole is a lifelong journey – Jesus as our one true guide.
So here, you’ll find blog posts sharing about:
- home + style – a few snapshots from within our new home & some favorite style finds [#theparkernest]
- faith + soul – real talk on faith & life behind the screens [#discoveringwhole]
- wellness – my general obsession with Arbonne products & all things that contribute to mind-body wellness
- personal growth – development + productivity resources, favorite books, goals/challenges, etc.
For all things copywriting, content strategy & branding, check out the kvh. creative HQ.
It’s time we stop looking at how far ahead (you think) everyone else is. May we simply look at how far we’ve come, and how much further God wants to take us. You’re in the right place. Right on time.
