My name is Elyssa Faith Schultheiss.
I grew up as the youngest of four in sunny Southern Orange County. I love to surf, go on hikes, and read good books.
When I graduated from high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I joined Saddleback Community Speech and Debate team and the direction of my life changed. I became a Communications major and learned how to effectively use my voice for change. I graduated from Vanguard in May of 2018 with a major in Communication Studies and a minor in Religion.
My heart's desire is to discover all of life’s beauty. Our fear often shields us from the beauty that is all around. But what if, together, we unmasked all of life’s beauty through story. Whether its lifestyle changes, learnings about mental health, relationships, or questions about God, I want to begin to tell those stories in new ways. I encourage you to reach out and share your story. And together, let’s reveal all of life’s beauty.
I don't consider myself a great writer. But I am passionate about communicating profound truth in the midst of fear. So here we are. I am on this journey to talk about the things in life that are hard and often avoided.
Join me on this journey as we learn together and invite courage to take root.
