Thank you so much for visiting my blog! My name is Makenzie, and I am a teen who stutters. I have created this blog to inspire readers~even those who do not stutter~to start seeing their unique differences as a gift from the Lord. Psalm 139 tells us that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” Think on these beautiful words for a moment…


It certainly takes courage from the Lord to publicly share my journey with stuttering. However, my sole objective for this blog is to bring glory and honor to Christ. He deserves all the glory and all of the praise for everything that happens along this journey. My hope is that this blog will encourage you to embrace your differences, resting in the assurance that God makes no mistakes.

With God’s help, we can find the strength to be courageous. As we read His precious Word, we witness His love and His faithfulness to people who do not deserve His love. Because of Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the cross for us, we are loved and accepted by an Almighty God…and that is all we need to know to live confidently and courageously.

Day by day, God is showing me that He alone should be the source of my confidence. Without Him, I am nothing. Whatever is holding you back, please give it to the Lord today. We all have insecurities, but we are eternally secure in Christ. In Him, we can find the courage to step out of the shadows and shout from the mountain tops!

I’m sure you noticed that the tagline for this website is Proverbs 25:11~A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.” Someone once encouraged me to look this verse up with stuttering in mind, and it has had special meaning to me ever since. When we allow the Lord to guide our words, they can have so much beauty and power to encourage someone at just the right time. Even if they are delivered a little differently. 

Much love,
