about me

Hey guys! I’m Meredith. I’m a writer and actress living in Los Angeles with my husband, Clay.

Version 2

I originally started this blog as a way for my family and friends to keep up with my west coast adventures when I’m made my way out here from Texas to pursue a career in acting.

I faced successes and failures. Some yeses. Many nos. And enjoyed documenting it all along the way.

Throughout the years I began writing some of my own projects, one of which included a comedy series for which we filmed a pilot episode called How to Lose a Girl in One Date.

And after having to turn down a pretty big potential opportunity in a film, God opened the door for me to be a part of  a “168” film challenge in which we created Riva.

It was this experience of creating a meaningful film that sparked in me a great passion to not only be a part of telling other people’s stories, but to be a part of creating quality content for the entertainment industry, to touch the lives of people in the way only film can.

With many creative endeavors in the works, I felt God call me to my latest project: writing my first book. It’s a non-fiction book about God’s design for dating relationships. And it is how I am currently spending most of my time. So, until my book is completed, you may not see quite as many posts from me here. But I am certain it will all be worth it when I can share this story God has entrusted to me with the world.

However you found your way here, and whatever words of mine you may stumble upon, my desire is that these pages would inspire you, that they would fill you with hope, and that they would point you back to the One who who is the Writer of the greatest story every told, and the true Giver of a life that’s good.

I want to let others in on my journey – of struggles and triumphs, of physical pain and healing, of doubt and of hope. The messy parts, the beautiful parts, and everything in between. So that this can happen:

“When people are involved in each other’s lives, more thanksgiving rises to God when any of them is blessed.” – John Piper

So, welcome to my journey. Welcome to my life. Welcome to all that God is so graciously teaching me. I pray you see Him here. I pray you see Him in this broken and winding path of pursuing my dreams. And I pray you are encouraged to press on and follow your own.
