Welcome to Sunshine in the Haze! I’m so happy you’re here! My name is Autumn Hudson, the mind behind the blog. As you probably see, I love to write. Only if you could see the size of my notebook collection! I’m an average person, meaning that I tend to overthink things, worry way too much, and be a little uptight around people that I’m not used to. I’m about like a dog in the midst of a thunderstorm when it comes to social events. If that doesn’t scream that I’m an introvert, I’m not sure what does. However, my goal in life is to run towards the purpose God calls me towards, no matter what that purpose is.
My biggest passion is to share God with others and my hope is that you’ll realize that it could easily be yours too! God wants us all to share our stories with each other. If I’m being totally honest, I tried to push that purpose away. I started this blog back in 2018, but then chickened out. I felt like I still had a lot of growing to do in life before I could publicly speak about God. Then I realized, if we look at life that way, then nobody is truly ready for anything in life. Yeah, I still have growing to do, but so does a 60 years old person. We all are constantly learning new things, so why not write about the growing/learning process? Sadie Robertson, Bob Goff, Louie Giglio… They’re all still growing, yet here we are learning so much from their journey. Keyword being journey.
Here on Sunshine in the Haze, you’ll find content about various things, all being targeted towards the Christian lifestyle. My goal is to have a place on the web where authenticity can flourish among my readers and I in a way that truly encourages you through your own life-long journey. You can find out a little more about why I do what I do here.
I’m not a person who can force words onto a page, because I wish for all my content to be quality content so that it may benefit you greater. Therefore, I don’t keep up with the ever-so popular blogging schedule so that I may keep myself aligned with my beliefs… Christianity isn’t a religion, it’s a relationship. A relationship with our Father who breathed life into us and a relationship with fellow Christ-followers. I believe Jesus died for you and I on that cross so that we could be forgiven and have eternal life with our Heavenly Father. God is my shepherd and I will follow Him. We are all God’s children whether we like it or not and I’m not ashamed to declare Him as my Father.
Meaning Behind the Name
The name of my website is way more than just a name to me. Before I created this blog, I wrote a song that talked about this life’s burdens. How sorrows and fears can be so deep that it feels nearly impossible to breathe, but our God’s glorious light breaks it apart and shines through that haze. How God is the sunshine in this life’s haze. And let me tell you, this life has a whole lot of haze! The goal of my blog’s name is to be inspiration in itself and with this name I can confidently say, it is.
