I am an eternal student who graduated with a double major in biblical/theological studies and communication. I have an MA in Communication, I teach college, and I am planning on another master's (in theology) and a PhD (in Intercultural Studies).

Since 2008, I've been living and teaching in Dalian, China.

The closest label I have for myself, in terms of religion is Messianic Gentile, though I'm currently in an evangelical church. My husband and I are becoming more and more interested in the Jewish roots of the faith. We keep the Jewish lifestyle and believe Yeshua is the Messiah.

As I am a theologian in training, I have thought through my positions on many matters. Some I feel passionate about, others I don't care about as much. I believe in the reality of spiritual warfare, believe in spiritual gifts and personally have the gifts of discernment, intercessory prayer, the ability to speak in tongues, receive words and visions. I tell you this because my worldview operates from this reality. I am also an inclusivist, an open theist who often leans in a more traditional armenian stance, for women in ministry except as the head pastor, and affirm the trinity.

I am a geek of many sorts. I love my Mac, my cats, my swords. Video games, movies, and music are a big part of my fun.

I am conservative and especially pro-Israel. I know a lot about politics and have read and do read a variety of sources of information, not just "conservative" ones.

I love discussion on matters of faith, politics, family life, books, music, and so many other things as long as it is a dialogue not a debate.

"To live content with small means, to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion; to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich; to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await events, hurry never. In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. This is to be my symphony."
–William Henry Channing.

As the Ruin Falls

All this flashy rhetoric about loving you.
I never had a selfless thought since I was born.
I am mercenary and self-seeking through and through:
I want God, you, all friends, merely to serve my turn.

Peace, re-assurance, pleasure, are the goals I seek,
I cannot crawl one inch outside my proper skin:
I talk of love - a scholar's parrot may talk Greek -
But, self-imprisoned, always end where I begin.

Only that now You have taught me (but how late) my lack.
I see the chasm. And everything You are was making
My heart into a bridge by which I might get back
From exile, and grow man [woman]. And now the bridge is breaking

For this I bless You as the ruin falls. The pains
You give me are more precious than all other gains.

- C.S. Lewis


I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen,
of meadow flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.

I sit beside the fire and think
of how the world will be
when winter comes without a spring
that I shall ever see.

For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green.

I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago,
and people who will see a world
that I shall never know.

But all the while I sit and think
of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet
and voices at the door.

- J.R.R. Tolkien
