It's the Start of Giving In....

My name is Rebecca Autumn Phillips and I was born in Buffalo, New York. WOW! New York?! Really?? Ha! We moved away when I was a year old, plus it was a really small town! I’m not from “The Big Apple” and I don’t know any famous people, I’m nor— well abnormal!
I lived in Arkadelphia, Arkansas from year one until year eighteen. Arkadelphia is what I like to call “Home Sweet Home”. I didn’t really like it that much for most of middle and high school, but then I started to discover myself and my identity in Christ.

I was raised in a Christian household, we went to church every Sunday, no exceptions. My parents are both CEOs. Impressive? Ehh… We aren’t living large like Bill Gates. Trust me, if we were then I would be paying someone to write this for me. Heck! I would be on broadcast interrupting re-runs of Hannah Montana to tell you my life story. I. Love. To. Talk.

A majority of my life has been spent working within the Methodist church. I was an intern for my youth minister for 4 years as well as being a leader in my youth group. I was on a lot of Arkansas Methodist conference committees to help to develop plans and goals for the Methodist Church. I’ve always loved working within ministry and went to college to discover the new generation of churches.

I’m now in College majoring in Radio/Television and hope to graduate in 2016. I didn’t really know what I wanted to do until I came to visit University of the Ozarks. I took the tour and went in Walker Hall and fell in love. The idea of being able to come to this school was a dream! Now I’m here! Because of my major, I have come to truly believe that communication can change the world; you just have to do it in the right and moral sense. One of my main roles on campus is being involved in the religious life. I’m the Vice-President of Methodist Campus Ministries as well as the media specialist chapel fellow.

After my freshman year of school, I did some soul searching to try and figure out what I wanted to do in my life. I always knew that I liked to write, but I never thought of writing a book and going somewhere with it. When I started my sophomore year of college, I had a lot of things that made my life seem like it was “spinning out of control” and writing “God Knows What Sex Feels Like” helped me to get back on my feet in more than one way.

My goal is to graduate from University of the Ozarks and then continue on creating “Rebecca Autumn Ministries.” With that I hope to speak at churches, youth events and colleges and continue writing books. Video ministry is something that I want to delve into as well!
