My name is Stephanie Campbell, and I’m a storyteller.
I am a 34 year old Christian, wife, & mother. My husband Brian and I have been married 6 years, and we have a 2-year old son, Shepherd, that is the joy of our lives. I am a cat-lover and have a cat named Picasso. I am a data manager for my local school system where I manage elementary student records, enrollment, data input/tracking, setting up student schedules, and notifying parents of truancy issues. I wear all kinds of hats in my job.
Before I became a data manager, I served our community in funeral service, in the NC Department of Corrections, and as a Caseworker for Social Services.
I have an Associate of Arts and originally planned to major in psychology, but ended up stopping there. It was God’s plan for me. I am an anxiety survivor and am an advocate of therapy.
I became a Christian at age 17, and I am a member of Mt. Nebo Baptist where my dad serves as Pastor, and where I serve as an organist. I enjoy genealogy, and have made some fascinating discoveries along the way (for example, I discovered that my 6th great grandfather was killed by Native Americans – straight up ‘Hostiles’ situation). I also have great interest in American & Biblical history. I have visited 5 countries, and the majority of the United States. My love-language is assistance.
I started Campbell ReWritten in July 2019 because I needed a creative outlet. This blog serves as a place to pen down my weird life experiences. There is no literary ‘finesse’. There’s not one hint of professionalism here. I didn’t major in English. lol
I also have a deep passion for caring for the dead and preserving their life stories. This ‘calling’ developed in 2012 and I’ve not been the same person since. I am strongly for what is known as the ‘death positive’ movement – a movement that seeks to spread this thought: That it is not ‘morbid’ or ‘taboo’ to speak openly about death, and see honest conversations about death & dying as the cornerstone of a healthy society. After retirement from the school system someday, it is my full intention to return to funeral work.
I have a conservative worldview and I became a Christian on the night of June 24th, 2004. Again, I have not been the same since. I fail Jesus daily, but every morning is a new opportunity to serve Him better and become a better follower.
Things that make me happy: My son’s smile, driving home from work with a pretty sunset and good music, taking walks in nature, travel, makeup, good hair days, time with family, meaningful discussions, Leigh Mcnasty on tiktok (lol), & clean & organized spaces (both at home and work).
For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
(1 Corinthians 15:21-22)
Maybe you will read something here that makes you feel more connected and less alone… (less crazy too!) Maybe you will read something that inspires, encourages, and instills something new within you. You might even cry. Anything can happen, and I am so glad you are here. My life is so crazy sometimes, I just have to share it with the world. Welcome to Campbell ReWritten.
“The other day, I was hangin’ with a friend. This friend calls herself a Christian, but doesn’t always act like it. Some days she’s on fire for the LORD, some days life’s struggles seem to get the best of her. So, as our eyes met, I really wanted to say something about it to her, but decided to just let the LORD speak to her heart, knowing nothing I could say could ever possibly have the impact that the LORD making Himself real in her heart would make. So I prayed with her, and finally, after some time, I winked… and, walked away from the mirror. Thank you Lord for loving me.” (author unknown)
