My World: Heidi McElrath

Her parents used to hide her novels so she could finish her homework. Now, a senior English major, Heidi McElrath reads at least a book a week and once wrote a novel in a month. "I love how God spoke the world into creation and how Jesus taught in stories," she says. "I think telling stories is a part of who God is and something I'm meant to reflect." Heidi also helps select art for the SPU gallery, acts in SPU plays, and is an editor for SPU's literary journal. And she gets her homework done — especially since it could include reading David Copperfield or Jane Eyre.
