Who Are You?

Well I’ve been blogging since last September and I’m going to guess that I don’t even know more than half of the people that read this. So it is time to come on out from hiding. I want to know who YOU are.

  • Name
  • Where You Live
  • How You Know Me/Found My Blog

You can do this by leaving a comment. For those of you who find this difficult to do, I promise it is really easy. You only need to fill out the boxes of name and email (the website box is for a url like your own blog if you have one). The email doesn’t get published. It just provides a way for me to contact you.

If you are reading in a feed, please come over and say hi. I can’t wait to see who reads this…

    I think you might have started commenting on my blog, and I clicked through and have been digging yours for a while now.

    I think I found yours through Ric Wild’s or Steve Barry’s. Either way, I liked it and have been here ever since!

    Ahh I just remembered!! I found it through another blogger after stumbling upon Moderate Christian blogger! Not that it really matters though… Just another mystery solved haha 🙂

    I found you through a friend…not sure how she found you but she told me about your blog. We both used to go to Dayspring back when your dad was the pastor. So we were both interested to see how you and the family were. I’ve enjoyed your blog.

    You are wise beyond your years. BTW thanks for the links to Ric’s blog too. Enjoy both. And I will introduce myself in person some day—barring standing up in worship sometime when you are leading and just yelling it out! 🙂

    Hey, Tyler

    I know we’ve met before debbie, I just spaced it. You help out with childcare in the mornings sometimes. I think that is when we met. Ric is a great high school friend that I’ve stayed in touch with. Glad you liked his blog too.
