The Bohemian Princess Journal


About Me

Hi, I’m Rebecca. I began blogging in 2014 as a way to share instructional material for my students. In 2021, writing transitioned to my full-time career.

I enjoy helping artists, businesses, and humanitarian causes get noticed and supported. Writing to help educate and uplift hearts is also a passion.

Telling these stories is an adventure that has introduced me to amazing people around the world. Thank you for reading and sharing in our journey.

The 4 Day Movement: A Non-Profit Serving People in Crisis in Wayne County, NC

Pastor DJ Coles and his wife, Ruth, have been givers and servers in ministry for as long as I can remember. Chaplain, youth pastor, recording artist, public speaker, mentor, father, husband, and friend are just a few of the hats that Pastor DJ has worn. In 2013, Ruth began to pray that they would find something that used all their gifts. God answered that prayer audibly on June 4, 2013, at 4:00 in the morning. This is the story of The 4 Day Movement and how one vision has blossomed into an organization bringing real change to Wayne County, North Carolina and surrounding areas.

Church Ministry is a Partnership Not Competition: The Story of Pastor Andrew Price and The Bridge, Mount Olive, NC

I grew up under the ministry of Pastor Ferrell Hardison at Whitley Church (now The Bridge) in Princeton, NC. He raised us to see church ministry like we are all part of the same team. Jesus is the name on the front of the jersey; our church name is on the back. What matters is the name on the front of that jersey. I’ll partner with any church that let’s us work with them (to serve our community) because it is about advancing the Gospel not one church over another. This is the story of Pastor Andrew Price and The Bridge Church in Mount Olive NC.

It’s A Wonderful Life In Mount Olive: How I Launched Into a Full-Time Writing Business in 2021

For eight and a half years, I taught proudly at Wayne Community College. It was a job I had prayed for and thanked God for daily. Then Covid-19 happened, and we all shifted to working remotely. I worked primarily from home, but went into my office occasionally. When I did, everything had changed. Fellowship was truncated. Everyone kept masked in their separate offices and rarely socialized anymore. Covid-19 stole the heart of our connection to each other. That impacted me more than I realized.
This is the story of how I went from teaching and loving it to the scariest thing I have ever done: start a small business.

The Story of The Bohemian Princess Journal: How This Blog Came to Be

I’ve heard a lot of stories about stay-at-home moms, traveling writers, photographers, and techies starting blogs to earn money, but that’s not my story. My story begins in a little town in western North Carolina: Morganton. While visiting the town for the first time in 2014, I was overwhelmed with the warmth of the people; everyone had a story to tell and was eager to tell it. As a graduate of a prestigious writing program and a life-long writer, I felt a hunger to reconnect with the writer roots I had let go dormant. So the blog began…

Get Used To Different: The Pivot of Hope During Covid-19 and the Heart of The Bohemian Princess Journal

When Covid-19 happened, the world was turned on its head. People turned against each other and made a cause to fight even if there wasn’t one. The buzz word everywhere became pivot. We all had to learn to think on our feet and be willing to change quickly to stay relevant. Our culture was evolving into a global one at levels of interdependence we had not experienced before. Instead of a few countries in partnership with each other, the entire world got hit with an invisible enemy and the need to work together to crush it…

What to Do When Loss and Loneliness Cloud The Holidays

If you have suffered the loss of a loved one, you know that the thing you want more than any present under the tree is more time with that loved one alive again. If you just came out of a breakup or you’ve been single for a long time, the last thing you want is to be reminded of how alone you are romantically. Holiday gatherings get harder when people are missing from them–and that’s true whether it is a lost loved one or a missing partner that you haven’t even met yet.

Corn Casserole: A Holiday Recipe With Some Thanksgiving Story

…Regardless of which story you believe, we can generally agree that Native Americans were a part of the equation. For those early English settlers, Native Americans were the ones who taught them about corn and how to farm in unfamiliar territory. Since 1990, the month of November has been designated as the month of Native American Heritage and the day primarily known as Black Friday is now also Native American Heritage Day. We think it is only fitting–in honor of Native Americans and Thanksgiving–to share our recipe for corn casserole…
