Hello sweet friend! My name is Jasmine Rose Morrell, but most people call me Jazz when they get to know me. I love that my middle name is Rose, because it’s not only the name of both of my great-grandmothers, but it’s also my favorite flower in the ENTIRE world, (though let’s be real, I have yet to find a flower I dislike).

I’m a whole lot of things: a barista, student, photographer, traveler, writer, daughter, sister, friend, woman. But the truest part of who I am is this: I am passionately loved by Jesus Christ, and He has fully captured and captivated my heart and is teaching me the beauty of being deeply rooted in Him so that I can spread my wings for Him. I am His beloved. And you are His beloved too.  

As someone who has wrestled long and hard through the feelings of being “too much” and “not enough” all at once (can anyone relate??), my heart’s desire is to daily grow my roots deeper into the Lord and do whatever I can to help other women do the same. True confidence comes from roots. We are not a burden. We are beautiful and we are powerful, and it’s vital to know that truth as we live in the beauty, mess, adventure, and joy of day to day life.

Oftentimes I write about what the Lord is showing me in the day to day. Sometimes I write about travels and adventures. Sometimes I write about the little joys in life, like coffee and flowers and music and food. Ultimately I write so that I can share my own journey in learning what it means and looks like to have roots and wings, and to foster a sisterhood where other women are free to be vulnerable and share their own journeys too. And I don’t think our journeys are ever truly completed. I hope you find encouragement, a smile, or a friend here. Let’s be women deeply rooted in our King, savoring the mess and the beauty of daily life, so that we can spread our lovely wings and fly high for Him.

“Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.” -Colossians 2:7
