I am a normal human being…

HAHAHAHAHA! Just kidding. I married a Pastor.

I live under a moral microscope and am passive aggressively scrutinized by strangers and acquaintances alike, with painfully unrealistic expectations. So I thought, what the heck, let’s blog this chaos.

What is my life REALLY like? What does a Pastor’s wife think about during the few minutes she’s not praying individually for every congregation member? (Yes, that was sarcasm.)

You may be surprised to learn that I am no ‘holier’ than your average church-goer. My calling is no higher than yours. I don’t have a degree in any sort of biblical knowledge. I have zero counseling experience. Heck, I don’t even bake! I just love Jesus for saving me from myself.

What I really am is the wife of a 33-year-old man who is obsessed with Star Wars, plays video games, and brings me back from the edge of falling into occasional self-perceived meaningless. I am a Stay-at-Home Mom of four crazy wonderful kids who push the boundaries of my sanity, and the borders of my heart.

I crave authenticity, but fear the repercussions of being candid.

One life…that’s what I’ve got. That’s what you’ve got. So at the risk, and almost certainty, of offending someone along the way, here is my blog! I love writing and so I’m gonna do it. Take me or leave me. I need people to know they are not alone. Even if that costs me a few reputation points.

We don’t love Jesus because we are holy or better than anyone. We love him because we are imperfect and he loves us anyway. Let’s do the same for each other. Let’s be real and full of grace.

BLOG CONTENT: Random Topics. No, really. You never know what’s coming. This brain of mine is all over the place all the time. Welcome to my peculiar mind. The mind of a Pastor’s Wife.
