About Me:

I'm a Jesus girl.

I kind of like to do adventurous things.

Like taking a backpacking trip to New Zealand for three months.

Hiking, canoeing, spelunking.

Meeting new friends.

Engaging in interesting conversation.

Writing stories.

Fellowship.

Road trips.

Growing things in my garden.

Learning and gaining knowledge.

Enjoying God's creation.

Books.

Creating ambrosia. Or at least attempting it.

Taking over the world. At least, in Risk or Settlers of Catan. :P

Playing with children. I've been a nanny before. And a governess. That was a most precious adventure.

Never doing quite the same thing twice - work-wise, anyway.

I've lived in Tennessee, Texas, Missouri, and Colorado. Colorado wins for being the coolest place to live (altho they all have their good points.) Scratch that - I just moved to Austin for the second time this summer, and it outpaces Colorado.

I'm one of those crazy Ron Paul supporters - in 2012 I got to be involved in campaigning for Ron Paul, and had the honor of being a delegate to my state GOP convention.

Adventures I hope to have in future:

Visiting Cuba and Mexico, while exciting, did not make me a world-traveler. Yet. Still to go: Africa, Europe, Australia, the Amazon... I've always had this notion it would be cool to live in New Zealand for a time. Well, at least to take an extended backpacking trip on the south island. (Check that off the bucket list... currently enjoying.)

White water rafting.

Actually finish one of my novels.

Have an even bigger garden and maybe even milk goats or chickens. Depends on where I live and what I'm doing.

Get married. Raise and teach my own children.

Favorite Books: 

I breathe books. It's doubtful I could live with out them.

CS Lewis.
Tolkien.
Dickens.
Jane Austen.
Louisa May Alcott.
Elizabeth George Speare.
Louis L'amour.
Andrew Murray.

Classic literature. Well written stories with interesting characters.

Les Miserables.
The Count of Monte Cristo.

Stories that make me laugh. And amuse me.

P.G. Wodehouse is a scream.
Agatha Christie's Poirot series.

Anything Can Happen by George Papashvily is probably the funniest thing I've ever read.

Non fiction I typically read: history, theological subjects, sustainable living, natural health, cookbooks.

Building Green by Clark Snell.
Practical Paleo by Diane Sanfillipo.
The Food Intolerance Bible by Anthony Haynes.
Get Married by Candice Watters.
The Gospel of the Kingdom by Geo. Eldon Ladd.
Any paleo or fresh food cookbook. :)

I read Jane Austen's over and over again. She's always more wonderful the fifth, sixth and seventh time. (My parents are actually responsible for introducing Jane Austen to me, late in life. Now I am blessed to live in a Jane Austen fan family - my dad considers "Pride and Prejudice" one of his favorite books!)


Favorite Music: 

Celtic, especially if traditional folk music.
Folk.
Bluegrass.
Some country.

Haydn.
Beethoven.
Mozart.
Vivaldi.
Bach.

I find very little ccm to not be meaningless.

Chris Rice.
Keith Green.
Selah.
Watermark.
Secret Garden.
Enya.
George Winston.
Josh Groban.
Michael Buble.
Glen Campbell.
Peter Paul & Mary.

Thanks. Smile WELL... I guess when I was young my parents didn't allow us to watch movies with "boyfriends and girlfriends" because that was "bad". Wink We were taught it wasn't good to have a romantic interest when we weren't the marrying age. I guess my older bros read books on courtship, but by the time Kaylee and I got to 'marrying age' we already figured out teaching kids to fear the opposite gender isn't such a good idea. Razz

"Courtship In Crisis" is on my list of books I want to read, though I haven't gotten around to getting a copy yet. I'm sure all the points it brings up have been discussed in the HSA forums, but I still would like to know what the author has to say.

I went to the Tennessee Excursion in May and had a blast! Smile So where in Colorado have you been? We stayed in Golden, right at the foot of the Rockies, and we also got to see Lake Dillon - breathtaking! The wind in the pines at the top of the snowy mountains...have you heard it?

Hi Abigail! Aww, thanks for your nice compliment. I just read through your profile and it looks like we are a lot alike! I, too, am a Jesus girl, like adventure, like meeting new friends and engaging in interesting conversation, writing stories, learning, gardening and farming, God's creation, books, I've been a nanny, like travel, love Colorado, LOVE milking goats - like my favorite thing, like reading classic literature and funny stories, LOVE Les Miserables, like natural building and crafting, love folk and bluegrass, and am a health nut!!!! And we are the same age...how about that? Smile

Fortunately, yes. It's just bizarre how blase we, as a society, are about some things, while still considering ourselves civilized and ethical.
