Get To Know Me

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your path. – Proverbs 3:5 – 6

Welcome. I am glad you have found your way here. My name is Alexandria, and I am the writer behind Digital Ink & Parchment.

For thousands of years, people have used writing as a tool to communicate and share stories, and writing is something I feel I was made to do.

After receiving my bachelor’s in English, I continued on to graduate school for my master’s in Communication where I also served as a Graduate Teaching Assistant during my attendance. Six months after graduating, I received a fantastic job offer and moved across country. Six months into the job, though, I realized it wasn’t the right fit and I resigned.

Stuck in an unfamiliar place, with my life feeling like it was imploding around me, suffering from anxiety and depressive symptoms, I struggled to find meaning. I went back to teaching college, but felt something was missing, and my mental health was suffering. So, I went back to my roots–writing. I began publishing on multiple online platforms, rebranded the blog I had put to the side, and sought help. I realized my faith was my biggest weapon. As my mental health improved, I continued doing what I loved, and re-established my relationship with God, I found my purpose again.

I eventually got a job at a local food cooperative as their Content Writer, and I suddenly felt I was using the gifts God had given me in a meaningful way. As I progressed through my probationary period at the job (and got a promotion!), I realized this was exactly what I was meant to do.

And so Digital Ink & Parchment was fully created. I strive to share an authentic, faith-based lifestyle that shows you don’t have to be perfect to be a Christian.
