About Me

 "Never judge a man until you've walked two moons in his moccasins." –Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech

I love stories.  I love books.  Perhaps it's the English major in me.  From old dusty ones, to shiny new ones.   I enjoy short and simple books so that reading is restful, but also books that help me to think deeply.  Somehow, I find that restful too.  I love movies.  In order to win me over a movie usually has to include both humor and heart.  I love TV series.   Especially The New Girl, Big Bang Theory, and Duck Dynasty.  Most of all I love getting to know people and learning about their stories. 

 I've got to say that God is by far the best author I've ever read.  I mean, He did write the best seller or all time.  Give it a read sometime.  It’s got action, drama, advice, poetry, but mostly it’s a love story.  A love story about a Creator who relentlessly pursues intimate relationship with his creation, and a creation who is plagued with the conflict of choosing  between Him and the many other lovers they find along the way.  I believe that God is writing a better story with my life.  I believe that at this very moment he is inviting you into a better story.  His stories usually include heartache (what would a good story be without a little conflict?).  There are heroes and princesses.  And no matter how dark things may seem at times, there is always, always a happy ending.  

A pastor once challenged me to keep a journal so that I wouldn't forget all the things God does in my life.  Think of this as my digital journal.  I want to remember the pain so that the joy will taste even sweeter.  I want to be able to look back and relish in the good times when no more are in sight.  I want to have a detailed account of the ebb and flow of my marriage, my spiritual journey, my adventures.  This is blog is the place where I keep record of those things.  

While here, you can walk in my moccasins—read my stories.  I hope that you will find the things I say at least entertaining, and possibly even inspiring.  I would love to get to know you and to have a better understanding of your perspective even especially if it’s vastly different than mine.  I think the world would be a better place if we all took time to walk in each others’ shoes.  Thanks for taking the time to walk in mine.
