Welcome to!

My name is Alissa Griffin, and I am humbled and thankful you're here. I started this blog to serve as a creative outlet as I navigate this season of mothering young children.  I hope to channel my passion for writing into something that can encourage and edify anyone who stumbles upon this site. Perhaps, by sharing bits of my story with you, we can all feel a little less alone in this great, big world.

The name "She Also Rises" originates from several different sources. First, the novel "The Sun Also Rises" by Ernest Hemingway. The book itself I find rather depressing, but the title is inspiring. To me, it evokes a sense of persistence and overcoming difficult circumstances. The night may be dark, but the sun also rises. Second, the new life that I have in Christ. "We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life." Romans 6:4 (ESV)
