Not too long ago, I went through a period where I experienced some very deep lows (mental, emotional and spiritual), and coming through that experience has made me passionate to learn about Victory in Christ, and to share as I go. I hope to not only serve my readers by sharing this ongoing journey, but to dialogue with, and learn from you.
Though I don’t make my living through ministry, I feel it is my ultimate calling, and trust God to provide financially through other means. Currently I work in the world of health care. I write Bible Study lessons for my church’s small-groups, and serve in a few other ministry capacities as I am able. I’m also a wife, mom to two amazing little girls, and a shieldmaiden of God. I am a graduate of Fuller Theological Seminary, with a master’s degree in Theology and the Arts–exploring the conversation between the world of faith and the world of arts and culture.
That’s just a little tidbit of who I am, and I hope we get to know each other better though this site.
So for now, let me spice it up with the most random things I can think of off the top of my head:
I am 5′ 2.75″ tall.
A long time ago, in a land far far away, I was working on a double major in history and english, when I decided to take a break from college, toured the western US as an actress for a year, and then went back to school. It was an amazing experience that changed the trajectory of my entire life.
I met my husband in Disneyland. Yep, you read that right. Disneyland. For realz. Specifically, we connected in the Tower of Terror. So romantic….
Although I come from a really sporty town, I participated in no sports as a kid. None (well except for a brief stint in fifth-grade track and field). I don’t even ski–an admission that locals find shocking.
I am a stereotypical female chocolate addict.
I can multitask to the point of getting nothing done. But I get stuff done. Sometimes. Most of the time. By God’s grace, I even get a lot done when it’s needed.
I am crafty. In many senses of the word.
I have a nearly uncontrollable urge to tap-dance when I am alone in an elevator.
For two wonderful, hectic years, I happened to be the president/artistic director/managing director/general slave to The Fuller Company; the one and only theatre entity at Fuller Theological Seminary. I would geek out with excitement when people like Andy Crouch or Dr. Richard Mouw would show up to our performances. It became one of the most important parts of my life at Fuller Seminary–in the end it was my unofficial thesis project and swan song to one of the best times of my life.
