Hello!! Welcome to my blog, Bella Raine!!
First of all- thank you SO much for choosing my blog out of the bazillion on the Internet to visit today!!! It means a lot! I am so excited to begin this blogging journey, and I’m honored you chose to come along with me.
Here on my blog, you’ll get to read book reviews, reading lists, exclusive art sales, my latest stories or achievements, or maybe even some devotionals or fun activities! But you probably are curious about the Bella behind Bella Raine…so without further ado, I present- me!
»My name is Bella Raine, and I am a teenager, Christ follower & creative.
»Jesus Christ is the most important part of my life, and it is through Him that I get to do all the things I do. He is my greatest inspiration, and I am so grateful for the wonderful life He’s given me.
»I live in wonderful Tennessee with two loving and supportive parents and two amazing siblings! I treasure my family and deeply value family love and togetherness.
»I’ve been homeschooled my whole life, and I love it!
»If you asked any of my friends or family one thing Bella loves, the answer would be the same across the board. Books. I love books and am a proud bookworm!! My mom jokingly states that I came out of the womb reading! Ha! Reading has always been a huge part of my life, but more than that it is reading good wholesome, worthwhile, Christ honoring literature. I, daily, am on a mission to seek out those books, and I’ve always had the passion for sharing those discoveries with others.
»Another big part of me is creativity. I’ve always been artistic; trying out almost every different art medium out there. (well not really, but you get the idea! ) I’ve done gouache, watercolor, markers, colored pencils, acrylic, and more. But the one I love the most is fluid acrylic art, and it’s the medium that I’ve actually made a business out of. I started my own Etsy shop in September of 2022, and it’s been super fun to get to sell my art and display it locally.
»Finally, one of the biggest parts of my life, besides family & God, is writing! My goal & dream is to be a fiction author, and it is what I believe the Lord is calling me to be. Writing, books, & language arts have always been a part of me, but it was only in the last few years that I really began to feel that being an author is “what I want to be when I grow up”! Over the last year, specifically, I have grown extremely in my writing, and really taken a hold of the dream and pursued it seriously. I attended a writing camp in the summer of 2022 (shout out to the amazing Jenny Cote & Libby McNamee & their fantastic Epic Patriot Camp!) through which I became a published author and grew exponentially. In early 2023, I was able to join the Young Writer’s Workshop, an online community and learning database for empowering Christian young writers! It’s also grown me more than I could’ve realized! I now have a book I’m currently drafting for publication as well as countless other ideas!
Well, so that’s me and my blog in a nutshell! I am so excited for this journey, and to see what the Lord does with this blog! I pray that it blesses & inspires you in ways you didn’t know possible. I once again am so honored you are here, and I’ll see you around!
