Big news tonight: Amendment 10A passed! The Presbyterian Church USA will now ordain openly gay men and women to the ministry. This is a great step forward for the church and for humanity. I’m so proud that so many people decided to stand up for love instead of hate. Amen!

Living, working and moving on…

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him, he’s always doing both.”
-Lawrence Pearsall Jacks
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrowmindedness; and many of our people sorely need it on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
-Mark Twain

A little bit about me…

I thought I’d say a little bit about myself and why I decided to start this blog. I’m currently finishing up my Master’s in Teaching English in NYC and searching for teaching jobs in North Carolina. I’m excited to be going back there because it feels a little like home. My husband and I both went to college in NC and his family is there, so it will be good to be on familiar stomping grounds. So we’ll be going from this:

Talk about culture shock! My grad school friends are mostly looking for teaching jobs in the city, so they can’t imagine what my life will be like. Many of them suggested I start a blog to record this adventure, so I hope to be using this space to share teaching stories and resources, my photography, and life as a small town preacher’s wife. I hope y’all will feel free to make this a dialogue rather than a monologue!
