The first money I ever made for my writing was immediately put towards a tea thermos and a new Bible.
I joke with my friends and say, "Smiling is my go-to emotion for everything in life." And while I cry and yell and break down, there is a lot of truth to that joke. No matter how big the devastating things are in my life, my God is bigger. No matter how big the world around me gets, my God is bigger.
There is no end to bigness of my God. And, I can say this in light of many big struggles that have come my way. Life wasn't all smiles and sunshine, but because of my big God, I could always find a way to thank God for smiles and sunshine even if it was raining and I had just lost a close friend. I've witnessed death and I've witnessed miracles. God was just as big and powerful for both occasions. That's a reason to smile.
So, if you want to know me. If you want to know what makes Alyson Schroll so odd, then know that she follows a big God.
