My name is Annalisa Victoria Sawtell. I write for purposes of Love and edification.

Annalisa Victoria Sawtell | lover of Jesus | spouse of a good, good man | 23 | schoolteacher by day | poet by evening | closet philosopher

Equipped with a desire for beautiful words–flowing by means of a beautiful God who inspires and astonishes all those who seek His face.

He is my muse; displayed in Christ; adored by his very Spirit in me. I have resolved that poetry is one of my most natural ways to glorify the ultimate Artist. I am simply a vessel, refusing to be dammed.

I have chosen to audaciously believe that who I actually am is who the world actually needs.  So here I am, in all of my vulnerability. And it is my hope and prayer that you will find these words lush & life-giving–a true gift from the Ravisher of Souls.

  1. Annalisa,
    Your poetry is inspired and inspiring. The longing that you express reveals how ardently you seek Him,
    and His understanding.
    I look forward to reading more as it is made manifest through your devotions.
    I don’t think that you can dam the waterfall…when the cup runneth over it is due to His Abundance which cannot be contained. I am deeply moved and filled with gratitude that you are the spiritually driven woman that you are.
    Love Dad


  2. Hi Annalisa,
    I can honestly say that I have never seen a more glorious website. The simplicity and honesty is just so refreshing. You should be very proud of yourself (if you’re not already) 😉

    From a very old friend of your mum’s,



  3. Annalisa,
    I can’t find the words to describe the overwhelming joy I feel when I read these words that come from your heart combined with the scriptures you link them to. You are so beautiful and have found such a unique way to reach others through Gods word and with his love. You are one very special girl!! I love you so very much! And, I will be faithfully following your page ❤ Mom xoxo
