Hi there! Thank you so much for coming by my blog. ❤ I’m so happy you’re here!
My name is Maggie, and I’m the writer behind Dreaming of Guatemala.
I am 17 years old, the eldest of five siblings, and I’m absolutely in love with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
I have been blogging since I was ten, writing stories since I was eight, and my relationship with the Lord began on January 11th, 2012.
I live in the great state of Georgia, have a heart for helping others, and my favorite book of all time is the Bible.
I love listening to music, meeting new people, and writing inspirational blog posts.

My Hobbies and Interests
Beginning in my teenage years, I fell head over heels in love with organization and room decoration. Having my bedroom be a beautiful, tidy space for me to think, work, live, and pray is an essential for me. I adore keeping it clean, updating its decor from time to time, and taking pictures of it is another hobby of mine, too.
Photography has been something I’ve found great enjoyment in since I received my first iPhone in 2014. I enjoy experimenting with lighting, angles, filters, and settings, but the best part about it is capturing the beautiful world around me.
Over the past year or so, I came to discover how much fun fashion is! By pairing thrift store finds and making them my own, I’m slowly creating my own style, and I’m always up for trying new clothes.
My family means the whole world to me – and while I wouldn’t consider them to be a hobby or interest of mine, haha, they are the ones I spend all my time with! I don’t mention how much I love and appreciate them enough (: I have four little siblings – Joshua is 14, Samuel is 6, Elizabeth is 1, and Isabella is a newborn.
Spending time with the Lord is absolutely essential for my well-being, happiness, and peace. I adore studying His Word, telling others about Him, and simply just talking to Him, too. I would be utterly lost without Him.
Traveling is something I don’t get to do very often, but I love it all the same! Going places with my family, whether we’ve been there before or it’s somewhere new to us, is always a lot of fun – especially when we visit somewhere outdoors.
I can’t tell you how much I love the autumn months! Summers here in Georgia are nearly unbearable with the humid heat we have to endure, which is why cool weather is an enormous blessing once autumn comes. The scenery is gorgeous, seasonal desserts are delicious, and I thoroughly enjoy being outside this time of year!
Missions have been a big part of my life since January of 2017! When the Lord showed me that I would one day serve Him in Guatemala, world missions quickly became a blessing to me. Praying over the future journeys He will one day take me on as I serve Him is something I do often.
