About THE RUSTIC WINDOW

Hai there, this is my very warm space that I hope you find to be a cozy encouraging corner where you can share your love for Jesus, be encouraged and have your spirits lifted. My name is Cicely or CiCi for short. I am the sole writer, editor, curator, photographer, all of the above for this blog. I am an only child, sweet as pie and in full pursuit of Jesus Christ so that I may be a dwelling place for Him and a vessel to others in order to bring you closer to the kingdom. We are in it together!!

There is an interesting backstory to this blog and where it is now so I’ll try to make it short. This blog used to be a book blog. If you are wondering about the kinds of books I posted here and if they were spiritual or faith based reads, they were NOT. For four years, I book blogged and built a following on Instagram of 50K and one day I walked away. Yes you read that correctly I walked away in pursuit of Him. It distracted me from Him which was pulling me further away from figuring out the purpose He has for me. I didn’t flinch when I walked away and I have so much peace. Whenever God is involved, everything aligns.

I am a Christian and I love my mommy like you wouldn't believe {Yes I am an adult}, photography, salads, autumn, sweet tea, iced coffee, writing, traveling, film and living. I am a lover of all things rustic and so earth tones are always my default. God instilled in me a deeply creative spirit and I want to bask forever in a place of constant inspiration that glorifies Him in some way.

I started this blog while posting my bookish photos and quips on Instagram {The Bookstagram community is the most amazing community ever}, but when God calls, He calls. This is an extension of my desire to talk and breathe my faith even more so with you. My goal is to run this blog full-time, continue my career pursuits in faith media, but most of all, connect with others around the world through our shared faith. If you are here, welcome!!
