About me

Industry Student
Location Washington, United States
Introduction Mikaela is blessed to be the daughter of Steve and Jennifer, a sister to five wonderful siblings, and engaged to an incredible, godly man. She is a 22 year-old homeschool graduate who runs a music studio, blogs at One Bright Corner with her twin sister, Lauren, and works behind-the-scenes on the Christian Heritage blog and newsletter. Her identity is a blood-washed child of the King, her heart belongs to God, and her passions are glorifying God through family discipleship, music, godly femininity, and writing.

You've written a hit musical! How will you avoid having fame go to your head?

Humility is recognizing that God and others are responsible for the achievements in my life. So I would remember that it was my parents who began me in music and invested the thousands of dollars necessary for lessons and instruments. It was God who gave them those resources, gave me understanding, and allowed me to write this hit musical (all hypothetical, of course)!
