About me…what an interesting topic. What do I say that will capture your attention? What do I put here that won’t bore you to tears? What do I put on this “about me” page that you will care one iota about? I have no idea…so let me begin…
I grew up in the Kansas City area. I graduated from Oklahoma State University (and yes…I’m an avid fan). I’ve been married to the same guy for over 20 years. We have a couple teenage sons around here who occasionally like to hang out with us. I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for a long time. For the last several years, I’ve been asking myself the poignant question, “What do I want to be when I grow up?” You’d think a woman in her mid-40s would have some clue by now, huh? Well…not this chick. Sometimes the expanse between what I want and what God wants is vast. Can you relate?
At the beginning of 2013 I accepted a part-time job as Assistant Activities Director at an assisted living community. I get to hang out with older folks and do things for them like manicures, call Bingo, play movies, Wii Bowl, etc. But most importantly I get to hang out with them, encourage them, and love on them. Who knew I would be so blessed? I have no idea what God is up to in this adventure, but I must tell you I have learned so much from Him…and them.
In 2009, my first book (What’s Prayer Got To Do With It?) was published. I tell people it was a labor of love–sometimes the emphasis was on labor, sometimes on love. And speaking of love, I’d love for you to read it. I frequently get asked, “When’s the next book coming out, Beth?” Honestly, I don’t know. For those of you wishing I’d write again, I guess the blog will have to suffice for now.
So what else do you need to know about me? I have a fabulous family that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I treasure my friends that I get to do life with. What a blessing they are. I love to watch sports, go to church, try new restaurants, be outside, pray for people, read, teach from God’s Word, cook, play my guitar, and hang out.
Thanks for stopping by the blog. Hope you enjoy what you read. And it’s even okay if you don’t. Feel free to leave a comment or two here and there. I dig hearing from people. And even if you don’t do that, please know that of all the different “clicks” you made (and will continue to make) today, I appreciate you “clicking” on me. I humbly say THANKS!
