The first date the most uncomfortable...
The first page the hardest to fill...
Hence, the first blog post is always a wee bit disconcerting.
Will they like me? Do I have anything to add to the conversation? Was I crazy to volunteer for this assignment? (Yes, I actually volunteered :-) )

I am many things. I play many roles. Maybe you can relate... This week, I will be a wife (well, every day for 19 years!), I will be a mom, I will homeschool my kiddos, I will teach graduate level classes, I will prepare for the MBA classes I'm taking, I will write, I will lawyer, I will be a friend, a mentor, a house painter, a box packer. I will be many things, but most of all I am a Christ follower.

Yet, if I don't, everything else I do is meaningless.
A waste of effort.
A puff of hot air that will disappear without notice.
So today, I sit next to you (go ahead, imagine I'm in the room with you). Maybe I have a white latte. Maybe you have a mug of exotic tea. Maybe a candle burns in the corner, scenting the air with spice. Either way, I'm with you. As your peer. As your friend. As a fellow Christ-follower who doesn't get it all right. But as someone who wants to.
I look forward to sharing this journey with you.
Oh, I'm also having a big giveaway this month on my blog. Feel free to pop over and join the fun. There's fiction, nonfiction, Christian living, and pampering in this little giveaway. You can join in here.
