snapshot on July 4th turned out to be one of my favorites!
This is me.
I'm still discovering who I am, but at twenty-something, I have plenty of time for discovering, don't ya think?
I'm depraved. I'm saved. I'm enslaved.
I don't know about you, but it seems too cliche to say "happily married to the man of my dreams for 6+ years." The truth is that I'm happier than I ever imagined possible, in spite of the fact we're just two sinful people who are constantly being fashioned into the image of God's Son.
We have four (yep, that's right) furry critters that we affectionately call our "kids." Don't worry, we're not those kind of weird pet owners. Okay, maybe we are. A little bit. But when you've had a pet for half of your life, they become part of the family. You understand, right?
The man to whom I pledged my life is a theology and church history professor. He completed his PhD in June 2011. I consider the fact that I survived being married to a PhD student to be one of my greatest accomplishments. As hard as it sometimes was, it was totally worth it, and I am indescribably proud of David.
I'm working on my masters in church ministries. (Lest you ask, no, I don't have any plans to pursue a doctorate of my own. No matter what my best friends say.) I have a vision for a vibrant women's ministry at the seminary where my husband teaches.
While the plans are still in the "let's talk about this again in a few months and see where we are" stage, I have no doubt that someday my Savior and Redeemer is going to use me to minister to seminary student wives. Want to know the details? Shoot me an e-mail!
It started out with a few readers, namely our parents. Somehow (where did you come from anyway?) I acquired a very small network of fellow bloggers who faithfully visit my little corner of the invisible world we call the internet. Ever the rebel, I ignore all the professional bloggers who recommend having a blog theme and sticking to it.
I'm crafty, but not crafty enough to blog about DIY crafts.
I'm spiritual, but not spiritual enough to blog about being spiritual.
I cook, but not often enough, and not well enough to blog about creating masterpieces in the kitchen.
I take pictures, but that barely qualifies me as an aspiring amateur photographer, and certainly not a photography blogger.
I don't care about fashion, TV, Hollywood celebrities, or politics enough to blog about them.
As you can see, it would be very difficult for me to select a blog theme. So the theme is this: themeless. Forgive me, mkay? Thanks.
Before you leave, let me extend a hearty "Howdy Y'all" from the Lone Star State. I hope you'll keep coming back, but if you don't, I'll keep right on blogging anyway.
