About

Hi there! Thank you so much for wanting to know more about me. I appreciate that more than you’ll ever know.

Fast Facts

My name’s Maggie, and I’ll be a senior homeschooler this fall. I’m the oldest of four (soon to be five) awesome kids, I’ve been blogging since I was ten, and I love eating pepperoni pizza any chance I get.

About Dreaming of Guatemala

I started Dreaming of Guatemala back in January 2017 about a week after the Lord called me to serve Him in Guatemala one day. I don’t know when, and I don’t know how, but by leaving it all in His hands, I know without a doubt that He will get me there.

The top three reasons I created this blog are 1) to occupy myself while I finish up with school and wait on the Lord’s timing with Guatemala, 2) to inspire others, and 3) because I love blogging soooo much! I enjoy writing about accomplishments in my daily life, new treats I try, interviews that I’ve done with other bloggers, and so much more.

Typical Blogging Schedule

Thursday’s: New treats that I’ve tried, every other week! I include lots of pictures, a link to the original recipe, as well as any baking tips I have, and changes I’ve made with my batch.

Friday’s: Little Accomplishments! This is a fun series where I share all of the little things I’ve gotten done in the past week, as well as invite all of you to share with me what you’ve been up to! I love getting to see what you guys have accomplished, as well as getting to write about my own achievements – it’s a great way to stay focused on being productive every week:)

Saturday’s: Spotlight Saturdays! As often as I have a completed interview to publish, I do so once every weekend. I contact different bloggers via email, and we have a back-and-forth conversation, with me asking interview questions and them answering however they’d like, then I find pictures to go along with whatever they’ve mentioned in their responses! It’s such a fun way for me to get to know them better, and it’s especially fun for the audience, as well.

Sunday’s: Inspiration from and thoughts on my life – most weeks, I’ll write something about the Lord, but other weeks, I’ll write about what’s going on in my life … and how I know the Lord is helping me through it. Some weeks, I have really positive stuff to write about, and I’m feeling really happy … but then other weeks, I’m barely holding on. Through the ups and downs in life, I like recording my process. Looking back and being able to see how far I’ve come through the posts I write on Sundays blesses me.

Monday’s and Tuesday’s: Whatever I’d like to post! That’s fancy talk for “I don’t know” LOL but that’s because I’m always up for posting a variety of content, so I never know what I’ll enjoy writing about one week to the next. More recently, I did a haul, a room tour, and some blog awards on a Monday or Tuesday – and those are just a sampling of the randomness that happens on my blog Mondays and Tuesdays! haha

Wednesday’s: Making the Change Monthly Wrap-Up! For a while, I did one of these posts every week, but for now, I’ve brought it back to one post, on the last Wednesday of each month. It’s a way for me to see what improvements I’ve made and what I still need to work on when it comes to overcoming anger and impatience.

Little Biography

Maggie is a 17-year-old homeschooler who loves being creative, learning new things, and spending time with her family. She’s been blogging since she was a little kid and, with seven years of experience, really knows her way around WordPress. When she’s not blogging (although that’s her favorite thing to do), she loves reading historical fiction novels, playing games, learning Spanish, listening to Leeland’s and Jordan Feliz’s music, watching fun challenges on YouTube, experimenting with photography, watching comedy movies and TV shows, wasting time on Pinterest, baking new treats, organizing and decorating her room, and so much more.

      1. I’m trying to wait to get anymore until the two I have die πŸ˜‚ Although it honestly looks like they’re not going to, which I’m surprised about! I tend to overwater, but they appreciate neglect… πŸ˜‚

  1. That’s really awesome that you enjoy writing! I do as well. Historical fiction is one of my top things to read (WWII era or medieval era or Napoleonic era, preferably), but I haven’t written any, strictly speaking. So it would be fantastic to read a book you wrote – ever think of trying to get something published??

    1. You’re a writer, too? That’s fantastic! Well, so far, I’ve only gotten one of my books published, but I did it privately so that I could have a few copies to give my friends, and also keep a copy for myself. Most of my stories are first drafts and aren’t really in a place to be published lol, but one of the top things on my to-do-one-day list is write second drafts to a ton of my stories. So maybe one day! I would love to be a published author 😊

    1. Thank you so much, Hannah! πŸ’• Yes, I absolutely love photography! I can’t decide which I enjoy more; taking the photos themselves, or getting to edit them and bring out their best qualities afterward. 😊 Thanks for coming by! xx

  3. Oh, I love succulents! I live in Arizona so it only seems fittingπŸ™‚. The first one I got had root rot when I over watered it…. That was sad…

      1. I envy you just a bit, as I didn’t have a functioning faith-walk till very late in life…better late than never, of course, but a foundation built young in life is sturdier, I suspect. Praying He pours out His favor all over you–hope you’ve got your swimsuit on! πŸ™‚

  4. Hi, Maggie, so happy I found your blog! It’s really cute and I think it’s really cool that you’re called to Guatemala. Also I think it’s awesome that you’re being proactive and learning Spanish as well as waiting for God to send to Guatemala. πŸ™‚ I have family in Central America and I am also using Memrise to learn Spanish!
