I am a Christian.
I am a mom.
I am a pastor’s wife.
I am a teacher.
I am a church member and volunteer.
I am a friend, daughter, cousin, sister, niece, coworker.
I am writer.
My identity is wrapped up in those first few titles- mom, Christian, wife, and so on. Just recently have I tried “writer” on for size. I have been writing to myself in my journal, iPhone, and word documents for a few months. I do it for completely selfish reasons- to get my thoughts out of my head, to clarify my thinking, to practice writing intelligently. Now, completely on a whim, I’m signing up for a blog to share my thoughts. This is not a selfish ambition. I hope these words encourage, clarify, bring joy and smiles, and make someone else feel like they are not alone. Any comments or thoughts are welcome and enjoyed!
