About

Welcome.

I’m a freelance copywriter and editor living in Portland, Oregon. I’m also a wife and mama.

I love Jesus, my family, laughter, adventures (sometimes in the woods), deep conversations, reading, learning how to do new things, writing songs and stories,  going on walks, sunny days, good music and a whole lot more. My vices are butter, cotton candy and bubble tea.  And maybe some non-food-related items. I’m good at arguing, making people laugh, acting silly and sometimes cooking.  I’m bad at a lot of things, too.

Brynna Begins is a blog about my creative process, taking chances, learning new things, pursuing projects and dreams, and leaning on the grace God gives me to take things one day at a time.  It is about paying attention to the process, enjoying today and not worrying about tomorrow.

“Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.” -Matthew 6:34 (The Message translation)

Through this exercise in process, perseverance and recognizing grace in each day, I pray to become more thankful, patient and joy-filled.

By the way… my name is pronounced BRINN-uh. :]
