Our blog team is made up of a variety of people—some that have been with us since the beginning and others who are new to the team. The common thread running throughout all of the members of this team is an immense amount of talent in the field of writing. We have compiled a team of incredible writers who mix humor, theology, practical advice, and beautiful wording into several impressive articles each month. Typically, we choose a topic monthly and then write 6-10 articles about that topic, covering most of the facets of that topic.
Travis Farr – Leader
Hey there! My name is Travis, and I’m one of many writers at Reckless Abandon Ministries. I’m a seventeen-year-old missionary kid living in Johannesburg, South Africa. I’m the oldest of six children; the three oldest siblings being biological siblings and the youngest two adopted. I’m extremely passionate about ministry, and I have a strong desire to serve God with everything that is in me.
Brianna Howard – Leader
Hey there. My name is Brianna, and I am the daughter of a pastor, currently residing in West Michigan, USA. I am an avid reader, photographer, blogger, and aspiring author. I am so thankful for this opportunity to use my passion for writing in such a unique way, and for the chance to reach other people and share some amazing things with them. I dearly hope this blog gives you a new perspective on the world and its Creator and Savior. All the glory to God!
Christian Hanna – Leader
Hey there, my name is Christian Hanna and I am one of the blog team members here at Reckless Abandon Ministries. I greatly enjoy singing, writing, reading, playing musical instruments, and working with kids. I love sunsets and waterfalls and all of God’s creation and spend as much time out in it as I possibly can. Though it’s no secret that I have had my share of struggles, I press on toward the prize of the upward calling of Christ with all that is within me and seek to glorify Him in all that I do.
AJ here! I am one of the writers for Reckless Abandon Ministries. I am a Bible College student at SATS (South African Theological Seminary) and currently working towards getting my bachelors in Biblical Theology. I am the oldest of five children and I currently work as an au pair. I am also involved in music and youth ministry and enjoy helping out with camps and short term missions trips. I am passionate about making a difference and I hope that writing for this blog is one of the ways I am able to do so. I am far from perfect and fail a lot but I serve a God who sent His Son to die for me so that I could have a relationship with Him.
Hey! My name is Kendal, and I’m a member of the Blog Team here at RA. I was brought up in a Christian family in South Africa, and I have a passion for sharing His word through music and friendship. I play guitar, piano, program, video edit, design and write; a plethora of talents, and I pray God will use them for his will. I am excited about the future of this organisation, and I pray it will continue to be a blessing in other people’s lives.
My name is Brandon and I have problems, but I hope to use them to my advantage and write more personal articles than I could if all was well with me. People tell me I wear my heart on my sleeve and I don’t care. I happen to value comedy and sarcasm quite highly. I am an avid gamer, writer, and reader and I quote movies designed for kids whenever I can. God comes first in my life and I hope that will never change.
Hey, guys! I’m Elri (50 points if you can actually pronounce it). I live in South Africa, and much to my disappointment we don’t ride elephants here. I love writing, and I especially love writing for this blog. Reading is more than a hobby for me, its a way of life. I also take my coffee very seriously. I’m currently studying and am loving every moment (except maybe the deadlines).
Hey hey! I’m Dylan, one out of a (pretty big) handful of writers at Reckless Abandon. I’m the second oldest in a family of eight. Being raised in a Christian home has definitely shaped me and my interests into what they are today. I’m super into the drums, piano, and pretty much anything musical I can get my hands on. I absolutely believe the new direction the blog is taking is going to influence more people than ever before, and I’m extremely excited to be a part of it.
Hi! My name is Krystal. I am a missionary kid living in the land of castles. (Yes, it’s true. I live in the country of Wales. A tiny country with lots of castles!) I am so blessed to be given this amazing opportunity to write with such an awesome group of people! I love reading, writing, and playing the piano. Looking forward to seeing how God will use these to glorify Him! My favourite Bible verse is Ephesians 3:20, as it tells us that God is able to do so much more in our lives than we can think or imagine; just reading this is so unbelievably reassuring to me! Well, dyna’rcyfan am nawr (that’s Welsh for, “That’s all for now”)!
Hi! I’m Faith Ballard and I live in upstate New York. I am a reader, a writer, I play piano, I sing, I love to be outside, laugh, hangout with family and friends, and most of all, I am a follower of Christ. This life isn’t easy and I hope that I can help those who are struggling. I definitely don’t know it all, but I have a learned quite a bit from my spiritual journey. I strive to always be real, authentic, and honest with those around me and show Christ and His amazing love through me.
Hey y’all! I’m Devrah. I am a missionary kid living in Western Michigan. As an MK I grew up in several cities in Slovakia until medical problems brought us back to the states. I have many passions and hobbies, including singing, playing guitar, reading, photography, teaching kids, and writing. I wear cowboy boots daily, and I still use crayons in my dollar store coloring books…with pride. But my biggest passion is Jesus. I love Jesus! I was recently diagnosed with Craniocervical Instability, an invisible illness that is genetic in my family. And through every painful moment, God’s love and faithfulness gives me the strength to get through and find joy in each day. I am overwhelmingly inspired by His crazy amazing love for me. He is so good! I am so excited to see where God leads me as I continue to write, learn, and grow in my walk with Christ. To God be the glory!
Hello! My name is Kaylin, I am twenty-one years old, and I am a part of the blog team here at Reckless Abandon Ministries. I live in Michigan and I really love flowers, my nieces and nephews, and taking photos. Some of my hobbies include crafting, being outside, and watching The Office. My life gets pretty busy, and God is showing me how to glorify Him in the day to day business. I think it’s important to seek beauty & light in brokenness, and this ministry in helping me with that. I pray it will help you, too!
