I am Jonah

Contributor Biography

Kathryn D. Nilson enjoys many things, including bicycling, creating art, and writing. A few of her majors along the way have included psychology, history, pastoral studies, communications, theology, and music. Her goal is to be a teacher and advocate for at-risk youth; she is currently studying social work and gaining hands-on knowledge through her work at a youth shelter. "I Am Jonah" is Katie's self-reflective journey through the Old Testament book. In this piece, she hopes to communicate her understanding of what it means to fear, what it means to run, and what it means to fight God, but most importantly, she hopes to reveal the silence and humility that come when great and magnificent love falls on undeserving flesh.
