I’m Callie. It’s not short for anything, but yes, it is like California. 

Worried Sapling is my rambling of character-carving lessons. I have anxiety–both colloquial and clinical–and, as a Christian, I’ve found better solutions than the misinformed hybrid of “get over it” and “just pray.”

Through my struggles, I’ve also grappled with what healthy relationships look like and how we can all have them. This space exists to bless the worried heart, to encourage healthy relationships, and to remind us that we’re all saplings in need of the living water and the Son. 

Oh, and me? I love being a high school English teacher by day, a graduate student by night. I’m a poster child introvert, though my loud mouth deceives. Reading is my favorite learning & a solid workout my favorite relaxation. Touching the fire to know it’s hot is my speciality, and I love the gentle hands of Jesus that bind up wounds with blood-stained grace.

Thanks for coming through! Let’s be pals?
