I believe. I believe in loving yourself, treating yourself well and appreciating who you were made to be. I believe in doing my best. I believe in the power of a good song to change your mood and your perspective. I believe that stories transform us. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins and rose again, and that He lives in me now as the Light of the world and Lover of my soul. I believe in the power of positivity and in hoping for the best. I believe in community and encouragement.

I believe in me.

I believe in you.

Welcome to my blog. A place for excitement and enthusiasm, worries and stresses, life’s valleys and mountains. A place where your imperfections do not make you a bad person and your failures do not make you a failure. A place where I hope you believe in yourself, too.


I’m Haley: Jesus-follower, Harry Potter fan, and Jane Austen aficionado. I’ve been blogging on and off for seven years, but Basically Hermione is my longest-running, best project. I love handwritten mail, handwritten plans, handwritten lists, handwritten anything, but somehow I manage to type things on here. I hope to one day make a career out of writing words that cause people to cry and believe more in themselves and God. In addition to writing, I’m an avid reader, a somewhat skilled ukulele player, and a pro with a bandanna.
