in love with Jesus, and striving to be more like Him every day.
proud of my kids.
working on being a better friend.
not the best cook.
a thinker. I spend months at a time contemplating ideas. Last year I chewed on the idea of Jesus fulfilling women’s romantic longings (which He does!). Right now I’m thinking through two things: what does it mean to fear God, and what does an all-in, totally sold out, “radical” follower of Jesus look like.
occasionally struck by the overwhelming need to express myself creatively, usually in photographs (hence the creation of this blog).
not very sentimental.
working on controlling my tongue.
grateful for the invention of digital cameras. (I take LOTS of bad photos – I’m so glad I don’t have to pay to develop them.)
the wife of a pastor.
kind of goofy. Okay. Really goofy.
at times, a failure.
thankful for the Bible.
a recovering scorpion-phobe.
a chronic merchandise-returner.
ashamed that my hiatus from the treadmill forced me to start over with the Couch to 5K training. Eek.
very stressed out by chaotic situations.
never sure what to serve my kids for lunch.
striving to do all things without complaining or arguing.
a homeschool mom.
currently trying to define my role in ministry.
not a self-starter.
married to my best friend.
a phlegmatic / melancholy split.
really, really grumpy when I’m hungry.
still trying to figure out how I daily can feast on God’s word AND have a powerful prayer life. I have had both, but rarely, if ever, simultaneously.
a huge fan of going to the movies.
sure that no one will be interested in any of this, but hopeful that I have finally found a way to capture those quiet, every-day moments in my life that I hope to never forget.
