10 Random Things About This Blog’s Author

I appreciate all my readers. I seriously am blown away that anyone would want to read what I have to say. But I’m thankful for the honor.

I was thinking though. Readers really only know what I write. And, yet even though I’m not a complex person, there’s more to me than just this blog. I write a lot about leadership, family and church, but there’s so much more.

Here are 10 random things you may not know:

I’m not a chatter box. Never have been. Most every conversation I have is for an intentional purpose.

I’m seldom still. An off day for me is best when I feel productive in some way.

I need down time where there is little verbal communication. Sometimes more than other times.

When I choose to go to sleep it usually takes about 15 seconds after I say to Cheryl, “I’m going to sleep now”.

Most of the time when I’m driving I don’t turn on the radio.

When I was young we had a dog named “Dog”.  I named him.

I don’t like rice or casseroles, but if you fixed it for me you’d never know. Now you do.

I seem strategic. I’m actually more random in my thought process. Strategic is a discipline.

Laziness frustrates me greatly. In myself or others.

I’ve been doing online ministry for over 15 years. I started with a dial up connection.

I had my first real job at 12 years of age. I made $1 per hour.

I’m picky about my running socks. It doesn’t matter to  me with other socks.

Now your turn.

Tell me some random facts about you.

  2. I am a chatterbox. God is teaching me to be still. When I travel by myself and stay in hotels, I never turn on the TV. Come to think of it, I don't turn on the TV at home either. I could not tell you how to turn the tv on at my house. Too many remotes and buttons and wires and mess. I've been known to fall asleep in the middle of a word. 15 seconds seems like a long time to fall asleep. :)

    I must have my recommended daily allowance of chocolate, dark, preferably.

    I love praying with people. I prayed with a complete stranger in the ladies room of a restaurant once.

  3. I was in youth ministry for 14 years and I loved it, I miss it.
    I am called to online ministry as God's Voice of Exhortation
    I love all things Chocolate
    I love to play golf, it feeds my soul!
    I have written a book, getting it publish ready
    I love my conversations with God, they are a huge part of my day!
    I am from and currently in a military family with one son deployed, one son wounded and processing out

    I have gone cold turkey from my diet soda addiction about five times.
    I once ran a marathon, but it took me over five hours.
    I did not plan to be a marathoner. I started training on a whim one day because a could friend said that she believed I could do it, even though I was over forty.
    I was once arrested at a protest with a dozen like minded people.
    I love my church. Even though it is a mega-church, I have a lot of friends there who really care about me. The pastors are really fantastic and actually care about us. That always amazes me.
    At one time, I was afraid of pastors.

  6. Being alone energizes me.

    I live in NC, too far away from my beloved Kentucky Wildcats (you are blessed Mr. Edmondson).

    The polarization in this country in religion, politics, etc., saddens me beyond belief.

    I have an addiction. Iced tea. Not sure I will ever kick it.

    Passivity, assumptions, and flattery should be chronic diseases in my opinion.

    I always wonder if I’m a female warrior in the Kingdom army that is soon to fight. I guess cause I’m short ;)

    I don’t like bullies (especially those who are masked as leaders) I consider myself an underdog; so I stand up for underdogs!

    I’m so observant/pensive, people have told me it makes them uncomfortable, even if I don’t stare.
