Hmmmm.... If you're here, I'm guessing you want to know more about me. I find this part awkward for some reason, so I'm going to give it to you in list form:
- I'm married. In 2001, I met my husband in law school (we're both lawyers). We've been married since 2004. We have a pretty fun, easy relationship. I know that's rare, and I don't take it for granted.
- I'm a mom. I have three young daughters who have taught me more about God and His love than anyone or anything. One thing they've taught me is no two people are alike. These girls are so different; it's surprising they have the same parents. This has helped me to appreciate and love others who differ from me.
- I didn't go to seminary. After becoming a mom in 2008, I "retired" from the practice of law and started studying God's word daily. For all I've learned, I thank God for teachers like Beth Moore, Timothy Keller, Priscilla Shirer, Francis Chan, R.C. Sproul, Kelly Minter, and my local pastors and women's leaders.
- I really like New Jersey. Okay, I'll admit it. I love New Jersey. My family moved from Philadelphia to South Jersey when I was 7 years old, and I've lived here ever since. I didn't even leave South Jersey for college or law school. I have a BA in Philosophy from Rutgers University in Camden (2001), and a JD from Rutgers School of Law in Camden (2004).
- I love Camden. Camden is a troubled city in South Jersey where God has always seemed to draw my heart. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for Seeds of Hope Ministries in Camden, NJ.
- I own a business called Fairsourcegoods.com. Although I love the mission and vision of this business, it's a lot more work than I anticipated, and I have plans to close it soon. Sometimes you win, and sometimes you learn (or so they say).
- I'm thankful for you and I'd love to hear from you. That may seem weird (especially if we've never met), but I really am thankful you're here. Blogging and podcasting is peculiar because you don't know who is reading or listening unless someone actually makes a point to reach out. I count it as a direct blessing from God every time I hear from someone like you. So please don't hesitate to write, even if it is just to say, "hi."
The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Numbers 6:24-26, ESV
