Welcome to my blog, Salt and Light! I’m Caitlyn and I’m so happy you stopped by today!
Here are a few things about me:
I love writing, reading, knitting and crocheting, playing guitar and ukulele, listening to music (a few of my favorites are Shane & Shane, Rend Collective, Housefires, Red Rocks Worship, Chris Renzema, and for KING and COUNTRY), baking, and reading and studying God’s Word. I also love hanging out with my friends! 🙂
My vision for this blog is to encourage, inspire, and convict girls and young women to a deeper relationship with the Lord; to inspire you to be salt and light to the lost world around you. As Christians and believers, we need to be freely sharing the light and love of Yahweh (God) to the lost world. I hope that you read my posts and leave thinking and inspired and challenged to a deeper relationship with the Father.
You might be wondering, why just girls and young women? Well, God’s Word tells older women to teach younger women in Titus 2, and in another part of Scripture we are told that women shouldn’t have pastoral roles or have authority over a man (1 Timothy 2:11-13). While the passage in 1 Timothy was proposing ways that were because of the time in history and the way the church functioned, I believe it’s still something we need to heed: that women shouldn’t teach men or be pastors. Furthermore, Adam was created before Eve with a special role of leadership. I believe that God created men to teach men and women and to be leaders and pastors, while women are called to teach other women!

I started this blog back in August of 2016. I loved to write and had wanted to start a blog for a little while, and decided to go for it after a friend of mine started one! While trying to come up with a name, I thought of one of my favorite songs, Salt and Light by Lauren Daigle. So, I named it Salt and Light!
It has been such a fun journey running this blog and seeing where God takes it! I greatly appreciate you stopping by and I hope you leave encouraged and refreshed by God’s Truth!
Thank you SO MUCH for visiting my blog!

Matthew 5:13-16 // You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
