Hey there!

 I’m Hilary.

I’m twenty-something.  I’m a redhead, I write, I daydream. I’m married to this amazing guy, Preston. And we just had our first baby, a boy named Jackson.

If it’s a choice between tea or coffee, I choose coffee (morning) and tea (afternoon). If it’s a choice between cheeseburgers and carrots (tough), I choose cheeseburgers. I also choose spring, consignment shops, Bon Iver, novels, laughter, and writing my way towards the truth. I choose a life colored with the radical, transforming, wondrous notion that Christ is Lord, and my life is caught up in following Jesus.

We’re called to love with our full selves. We’re called to scatter our love wide and wonder about how it grows. We’re called to love fearlessly because He first loved us.

I want to live with that wild love.

I’m so grateful you’re here.

  1. Hi Hilary. We continue to love your writings and to love Jackson through them.
    You have such eloquence for the language of which Uncle Greg and I neither possess.
    Know that we love you, all 3 and continue to pray for that miracle baby to be born.
    He will change your hearts forever, in such a great way, no parent can explain until
    another experiences it themselves. I love how you sign everything to Jackson, Love, Mom.
    It’s my favorite part of your writing.

  2. Hilary, I’ve been following Preston’s blog for a little bit (maybe a couple of weeks) and found yours via his. I loved the story of how you met and, eventually, got engaged. A very sweet, modern story — and, yet, a tale as old as time.

    Looking forward to exploring your blog. 🙂

  3. I may be approaching the point of creepiness now (but is that even a thing when it’s writing we’re talking about…?), but you mentioned Gilead and I just wanted to say that that book practically changed my life in a very subtle and breathing-like way. It changed who I want to be, anyway. I just thought it was beautiful, and so many others in my class (TGC freshman year) thought it was boring or lame. So whenever I find people who like this book I essentially grab them and go “RIGHT?? IT WAS SO BEAUTIFUL.”

    …so yeah.

  4. HIlary you are a beautiful writer already. This is a precious site filled with the eternal life dreams of a lovely young lady. I will see you at church and ENCOURAGE you!
