You know all those things you've always wanted to do, but never made time for? Well this is mine. I've always joked about starting a blog and here it is, I'm typing my first post.
I guess we should get to know each other. Here it goes... I am a 19 year old student at Liberty University. I talk too much. I love Jesus more than anything else in life. I'm passionate, I thrive on busyness and I am incredibly stubborn. Right up there next to Jesus on my love list is kids. I want to be a mom and God has given me a huge heart for children. I guess that's why I'm an Elementary Education major! I love the innocence and faith of children. I'm addicted to Pinterest and I love to cook, shop and do cheesy girly things. I love sappy chick flicks (secretly, I think every girl does and is just afraid to admit it). I mean what girls heart doesn't skip a beat when the sensitive, extremely attractive guy says the perfect thing to the girl in a movie and promptly kisses her?! It's the heart of a woman, we all want that kind of love. Speaking of love, I am currently single and by that I mean I've never actually dated anyone. Don't panic, I know it's weird! I really feel that dating is for marriage and if I wouldn't marry someone I won't date them. No worries, I know God is preparing someone out there!
You should know about my family I suppose, since they are a pretty big part of my life. My dad is a pastor. He planted a church when I was about 4 and has faithfully pastored it for almost 15 years now. This summer we will be building and we could not be more excited. My dad is amazing and has shown me true Biblical manhood and what it means to be treasured by that kind of man. My mom works as a special needs aide and reading specialist at a local elementary school. She also has an incredible heart for the Lord and loves children and missions. She lived in Ecuador for two years and is fluent in Spanish. Now that I'm an adult, I can happily call her one of my closest friends. Lastly, I have a 22 year old brother. He just graduated Liberty last spring and is a worship major at our church. He is charming, funny and on fire for Christ (he's also single ). Being a pastor's family is certainly an adventure; sometimes amazing, sometimes trying, but most definitely what God has called us to. Everyone always says we should write a book so this may be as close as it gets, but we'll let you in on this crazy life of ours!
So there it is, in a compressed form, that's me and this is my sweetly broken life.
