My name is Andrea Lucado, and I’m so glad you’re here! I hope you’ll stick around for a bit to read along, laugh along and learn along with me. First, let me tell you a little about myself…
I’m a freelance writer based in the wonderful and beautiful city of Austin. I grew up in San Antonio. I went to Abilene Christian University in the desert of West Texas and studied English. Then, I moved to the lush land of England to get my masters in English at Oxford-Brookes University.
After moving back to the U.S. and spending a few years working in publishing and PR in Nashville, I have landed in the freelance world (and back in God’s Country), getting to do what I love every single day: write my little heart out.
My first book, English Lessons, released in 2017. I also write here on my blog, and other places, like The Washington Post, Fathom Magazine and elsewhere in print and online. I freelance write for various people and things and you can learn more about that work here.
More recently, I’ve been doing some speaking, and despite a very traumatizing public speaking experience in high school, I enjoy it. Visit my speaking page here for more information.
Besides writing, I love laughing with my friends, quiet and slow mornings that involve as much coffee as I want, learning more about this man named Jesus and this life-changing truth called grace, and experiencing God’s love when I least expect it. So you can expect to read a lot about those things — God, Jesus, love (of ourselves and others), and grace — on this blog.
I also ask a lot of questions in this space, and, in life in general. I’ve just always been that way. In my opinion, a life not questioned is not a life worth living. A faith not questioned is not a faith worth having. I plan to never stop asking.
