Hello there! My name is Brianna Wyatt, and I’m thrilled to join the nest as the new social media assistant for Litfuse. I’m a recent graduate from Taylor University, clad with a shiny new degree in professional writing and a music minor. But on a more personal note, I’m an ever-dreaming creative who loves telling stories in every format.
Throughout my life, my love for sharing stories manifested itself through many outlets. Books and writing hooked me at first, and later music and theatre came into the picture. Theatre especially has a special place in my heart. When I was in college, I lived half of the in my dorm room and the other half in the theatre and music building! As my senior year approached, I knew that wanted to keep creative storytelling in my life, and I had this vague idea to use it in a way that encouraged others with the truth of the Gospel. Then, I stumbled upon worship design and learned that churches were using creative arts to craft worship services that inspired people to change their perspective on God. I began to explore, and as I did, that fuzzy idea became clearer.
A year and a half later, I’m now a worship design intern at Ginghamsburg Church in Tipp City, Ohio, and will soon be stepping into the role of creative producer. I LOVE the work I do there, and am so grateful that it allows me to use my creative gifts to bring others a message of hope.
Working with Litfuse has already been a blast, and I’m looking forward to interacting with all of you via social media. If you’d like to say hi, please don’t be shy! Drop me a hello on Facebook or Twitter!
Biggest pet peeve:
The little whirring noise the wind makes when your car window isn’t shut all the way. My car has manual rolling windows, and sometimes the back windows get bumped down ever so slightly when I’m loading things in. I’ve had many-a-trip where I’ve been stuck with the annoyance in the background until I can stop to roll them up again!
Do you untie your shoes before you take them off?
It depends how tired I am. But usually, yes.
If you were a crayon, what color would you be?
Robin’s Egg Blue.
Coffee or tea:
Tea . . . or a chai latte!
If you could go on a road trip to anywhere in the U.S., where would you go?
I’ve always wanted to take a classic Route 66 road trip. If driven in a light blue 1965 Mustang, that would be the cherry on top!
Spiders. I don’t like them. At all.
The last movie you rented from Redbox or Netflix:
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (Got to love those John Hughes classics.)
When you were in kindergarten, what did you want to be when you grew up?
A librarian. Let’s be real, that’s still one of my many dream jobs!
Favorite ice cream flavor:
At the moment I’m into coffee-flavored ice cream, but plain-Jane vanilla is always a winner in my book.
If you had an extra room in your house, what would you use it for?
Oh, that’s easy. A library/reading room, hands down!
What is the farthest place from home you’ve ever been?
My sophomore year of college, I traveled to Seoul, South Korea with the Taylor University Chorale. I learned how awesome Korean culture is, and I sampled jellyfish!
What book are you currently reading?
Truth be told, that’s a long answer! I always have a stack of books by my bed that I rotate through (right now I have, I kid you not, eleven). I’ll give you the top three titles: Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon; Making a Mess and Meeting God by Mandy Smith; and The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare.
If you were a given a gift card to any restaurant, where would you want to eat?
Warehouse 4 — my favorite coffee shop in Tipp City.
What was the best birthday present you ever received?
A blue vintage typewriter from my sister (it was actually a Christmas gift, but one of my favorite gifts by far for obvious reasons!).
What task do you dread doing each day/week?
Laundryyyyyyy . . .
