Introducing myself via internet is difficult to do because I’m not sure exactly what it is you’re wanting to know. Do you want to know more about my childhood or more about my formative years in college? Perhaps you’re only interested in what I’m doing now. For the sake of time and energy, I’ll be brief.I’m a twenty something woman who recently graduated from university. About a year ago I moved back to Texas after spending 9 months living in Costa Rica. I was on a long term church planting mission team for 2 years, and after coming back to the states I was trying to figure out what was next. Next turned out to be working in higher education at a state university and getting married to the love of my life.
I received a BA in Spanish from Abilene Christian University and while I used it daily while living in Latin America, I find myself struggling to practice in the day-to-day grind in Texas. I didn’t exactly grow up in the church, but over the past 10-12 years I’ve been able to see God slowly restore hearts and relationships in my family. My childhood was fairly chaotic and strange, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. I’m convinced that’s where my love for different cultures and different perspectives come from.
I enjoy getting to know people and am passionate about learning languages so that I can have conversations with people different from me. I think contrast is absolutely beautiful and fascinating. I have fun trying new things – even if it doesn’t always work out the way I expect. Above all, I am a Christian and desire to never stop growing and transforming into more of Christ’s likeness. I believe that’s the purpose of life. So here is me, trying my best to live that out and having plenty of “oops” moments along the way.
I hope that you join me in this journey filled with new discoveries, heartbreak, immeasurable joy, awkward moments and humility. May we together discover that God’s mercies are new everyday.
