About

We are infinitely more than what we do, have, how we vote, who we Love…

Who is Jasmine @JasNotes?
This is nicer over coffee. Wait a sec, let me make you some.
I’m Jasmine: people-passionate, rainbow-spotting, youth advocate, Drum & Bass (and infinitely more) lover, who you’ll find geeking hrd and often, from Harry Potter, Marvel and Voltron, to strawberries and Saturn..

The Universe is on our side..

Heavy empathy and wild thinking spark my writing. I try to be vulnerable and share my heart here. And I try to write for everyone regardless of culture, beliefs, age, whatever.

I mean for this to be a safe space..

I’m a self-proclaimed recovering Phariseethose peeps who were crazy about God and *His word, but totally blind to *His Heart– and some posts have been labelled heresy or just controversial. I’ve come under fire for daring to think big about God/God’s Love and hope.

Dumping religion and “the box” has faithfully coloured the blog.

My hope is to point to Massive Love and the unfathomable awesomeness of People.

What do I cover? I write about Social Justice, American Christian Hypocrisy, aspects of the Love of the Universe through Geek posts, I share adventures inspiration or glimpses I nab from nature or life along the way. And I occasionally tackle some WTH bible stories (please send q’s so I can dig!).

This is a place to lose labels, be encouraged, think bigger about love, ourselves, our connection, and hopefully find gems (or just glitter) to light our way a bit.

Everything’s going to be OK in the end.
If it’s not OK, it’s not the End. – John Lennon

Hope you feel welcome here. How was the coffee? ❤


That was a bit about me and the writing. What’s your story? Feel free to reach out, post a comment, connect on Instagram , Twitter or SoundCloud..

*I use He and His as simple pronouns for God, but fully recognize God with male and female ‘identity,’ (for lack of a better word). I believe this is evidenced throughout the bible but most blatantly through humanity. To ponder more, check this post, “Transgender God” here. Or this amazing Love Letter to a Transgender Teen on Spirit Day.


PS., I’m big on Youth Protection/Advocacy and Empowerment. Sexual abuse prevention, and prn-proofing kids is heavy on my heart, especially in light of all the screens getting in more and increasingly younger hands.

1 in every 10 visitors to a prn site is under 10 years. Hello.

Want to creatively collab or take the free Prevent It workshop? (via Little Warriors), contact me.
