Thanks for stopping by. I playfully yet seriously consider myself a ponder-er. I also thought that would be an adequately descriptive blog title for my purposes here and thus I’ve rebranded myself the “Pondering Woman”.
I grew up in the United States but now live in New Zealand with my husband. I think a lot about a lot. I also try more things than most and enjoy a good research binge on the strangest of topics. I guess you could consider me a “jack of all trades”. But that saying gets a bad wrap so let’s tell the full story: “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one”…would be a fairer telling of us jacks. If you’ve found your way to this site I think you’ll find there is increasingly less of a topical trend in my writing than has been here for the last several years. What occupies the largest share of my present ponderings will often find its way into my conversations and eventually my writing. Which means posts could range on musings about God and His funny little friends, to my hypothesis on why my colleague refused to shake my hand at work yesterday. It’ll be obscure, to put it lightly. But, hell, this is my blog. I can do what I want.
Having been raised in a faith-filled home, I know the glory and agony of being a “christian”. I am certainly on a journey with my faith. If you look back in the annals of this blog you’ll mostly come across musings of a very protestant persuasion. I enjoy reading or watching these back to myself and still find a lot of hope in them. But I am maturing and dare I say it…changing. I’ve taken a couple years away from the pen to start life anew in the Southern Hemisphere and am only now re-growing the hunger to write. I think that most of all, the point of this site is to show others that they are not alone in their journey on the narrow road, whatever that may mean for them..
I dislike cold weather (unless abundantly dressed) and in-authenticity. I like spending quality time in deep conversation with interesting people over chai soy lattes. And I absolutely love family (by blood or my personal favorite – by choice), the beauty of frolicking the unknown of God with God, and my perfect-in-every-way husband.
