Welcome to Bound Blessings! My name is Madison, and I am a 21 year-old girl from Iowa with a passion for Jesus, people, & writing (and of course ice cream). This site was made to inspire, uplift, & enlighten you as you read about other people's faith & life stories as well as my own. Scroll down to read about the mission of Bound Blessings, the story behind it, & what else you can find in this place! So happy you’re here, blessing! :)
The mission of Bound Blessings is to inspire, uplift, and enlighten you as you read other people’s faith & life stories as well as some of my own personal stories.
When we are rooted in Christ, we are bound to be a blessing to others and bound to be blessed. Bound Blessings aims to remind you of this so that you can live the best life possible.
When I turned 13, I started keeping a journal that I wrote in every day. I have continued to do this to this day and have stacks and stacks of journals filled with my scribbles, stories, and prayers (and a lot of embarrassing stories).
During college, I quickly fell in love with Dance Marathon and what it did for the kids at the local hospital. I knew I wanted to do something for them, so I decided to take my passion for writing and use it to bless the kids at the University of Iowa Stead Family Children’s Hospital.
I decided to write a devotional book, focusing on things many people struggle with. Blessings were bound in the writing with subjects including faith, love, beauty, confidence, perseverance, positivity, and radiance while blessings were bound to happen to both the reader and the kids at the hospital. I went to work and published the book, donating 50% of all the proceeds to the hospital.
While waiting for the book to be published, I really missed writing. I decided to launch a blog just to fuel that passion and inspire, uplift, & enlighten other people. The blog, which I also called “Bound Blessings,” took off and went viral. It has now affected millions of people in almost every country. God has truly shown me that when we are rooted in Him, we are bound to be a blessing to others and bound to be blessed! I pray that Bound Blessings helps you feel this too.
