I’m Florence, and I’m a bundle of contradictions.
I'm one of the most petite people you'll meet, with one of the loudest laughs.
I’m a country bumpkin who hates crowds, living in the hustle and bustle of London.
I’m 27, with childish humour but the self-appointed bedtime of someone three times older.
I have aspirations of grandeur to go alongside my imposter syndrome and tendency to self-deprecate.
I have been a Christian since I was 18, but I easily forget that God loves me.
I sometimes take myself too seriously, yet I never remember to wear matching socks.
I’m a planner, with no sense of what the future holds.
I judge people for the things which I am most guilty of, and in the story of my life, I sometimes cast myself as the victim, and sometimes as the villain.
I used to have an answer for everything, but growing up has felt more like unlearning, unravelling, unpicking, not-knowing. That said, not having all my is dotted and ts crossed has never stopped me putting pen to paper.
You can find some of my jottings, musings and ramblings in the Church Times, Deeply Rooted, Woman Alive, Mind and Soul, Christian Today, Premier Christianity, Magnify, A New Name, Evangelicals Now, BeThinking, and in Round Church Talks.
Oh, and in my first book, Lessons I Have Unlearned, published by John Hunt, coming out in June 2021.
