About Mia


Heyyy, I’m Mia!  For one reason or another, you have found yourself here.  And I’m so glad! Can I be honest?  I have avoided starting a blog for years.  Yes, YEARS! My big sister suggested it about 6 years ago.  I hesitated, mainly because I didn’t think I had anything to talk about…or that anyone would listen for that matter.  But I’m so glad she planted that seed.  Because here I am, at the appropriate time. “Farkarwa”–awaken–determined to walk in my God-given purpose.

Here are a few things you should know about me: I am a Christian, daughter, sister, mentor, author, MSW candidate, Founder & Executive Director of Own Your Peach Inc., Author of Reflections from the Kitchen: A 31-Day Devotional Cookbook , creator of the Reflections from the Kitchen Gratitude Journal, and host of the Misadventures of the Millennial Virgin Podcast.  I looove cooking for loved ones. I’m awkward.  I am an extreme introvert (but I am slowly embracing the importance of getting out of my comfort zone when necessary).  I am passionate about purity.  I’m also irrationally passionate about empowering girls and young women with the tools to be the best version of themselves.

I also believe that everyone has the capacity to change; to reach their full potential. Unfortunately, many people don’t for various reasons. One of those reasons being a glimpse of hope. So, my goal through my platform is to challenge you (and myself) to stretch. To allow God to prune and mold you, so you can be the woman He created you to be.

My top 3 travel destinations on my bucket list are The Holy Land; Accra, Ghana; and Nigeria.  I believe that God has a special purpose for us all.  He has entrusted each of us with unique talents that are meant to glorify Him.  Will you “farkarwa” with me?
