Welcome to my corner of the Internet!
It’s a safe space. I promise.
My name is Cheyanne Clarke. I am a New Yorker, born and raised and newly saved by Jesus Christ.
It’s taken me a while to get here. And by here, I mean both saved and free through my relationship with Jesus but also to this platform. I’ve spent a good chunk of my life desiring to create and share. I’ve always had a taste for creativity – spending over eight years in performing arts, writing all about my experiences sitting through NYC theatre and sharing my vulnerable thoughts on blank pages of a journal no one would ever read.
So why this? Why now? Well, after being radically changed on a random night in February of 2017, graduating from college with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology in May of 2017 and quitting my stagnant and unfulfilling retail job to experience my first dose of unemployment in December of 2017, it felt like 2018 was the start of a truly new beginning. According to the Bible, the number 8 is said to signify new beginnings so, here’s mine.
I have a heart that sings with joy when I think about the broken, hollow, unsatisfied life I was set free from. I have a heart for Jesus, people, theatre, books and buffalo wings. I want nothing more than to help bring the broken home. To let them know that a bad day doesn’t equal a bad life. I’m nowhere CLOSE to where I want to be. I recognize that my life doesn’t have to be an example of perfection. My hope here is to inspire people to see that perfection is not the ultimate goal. I’m here to share my life through my writing. I’m not aiming to blow you away with beautiful prose but I hope you’ll join me on this journey. See that I’m walking right beside you. If you want to hold hands along the way, I won’t say no to that. But I won’t be your leader. I’m walking behind Jesus and I’m not planning on turning back!
