Enigma the Author

If the first time you met me, it was in person you either know me as Samantha or Sam. ⠀

If our only interactions have been through this blog, I would honestly love to know what made you click onto this website.⠀

Either way, one of the top FAQ's about my instagram name and online persona is:⠀

Why Enigma? Why Enigma the Author?⠀

As I began my journey into blogging and eventually entrepreneurship, it was important to me to separate who I was, in the same way becoming a business entity creates a being separate from it's protect myself.⠀

I wanted the Christian Lifestyle Brand to be inspired by my life, but it was important to me that I didn't define myself by the success or failure of the brand and the business. ⠀

I created this persona as a way to not take whatever happened so personally, but if you are and entrepreneur or more specifically a solo-preneur, that is virtually impossible.⠀

Yet almost 4 years later, I've built this very small following and I've kept the name.


An Enigma is: a person or thing that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand.⠀

I believe as beings made in the image of God our Father, as believers, as followers of the faith, we are often misunderstood. ⠀

Not only does the world categorize us singularly, we hold ourselves to impossible standards that don't meet the realities of our faith walk. ⠀

My goal has always been to help to articulate these struggles and build a community behind the reality of faith, particularly as a young urban Christian.⠀

So while the reason behind the pen name has faded, the meaning of it still stands.⠀

Christians, real, true followers of the faith are a mystery even to themselves and what does that look like? As an author I do my best to work this out in the blogs (and now vlogs) so that it can encourage some one else to know that they are not alone.⠀

Interesting post! We can begin again with the help of GOD and we must strive every day to be Christlike for Jesus was one of the greatest examples of how we should live and treat others.
