This is a post in community with Alene Snodgrass and Graffiti Summer! Something you need to know: here on my site, you’re never too late to join anything, so visit whenever you can! I’ll be posting a SHORT vlog each Wednesday, so feel free to share in the comments even if you can’t participate in the study!
We’re off to a great first week as Alene gave us 2 challenges.
But other areas are totally shareable and some people will think I’m nutty. But as old and as blond as I am, I’m pretty much over people thinking I’m nutty … Because they’re right 😉
But in the spirit of today’s post, let’s share stories! I’ll go first:
I’m one of the “vanilla” people I mention in the blog. No trauma or drama, raised in a Christian home with parents who loved me and believed in me. In fact, something not everyone knows about me is that I’m a preacher’s kid.
My dad is a bivocational minister (who are some of the hardest-working ones, IMO) and he’s paid to be an engineer. We moved several times when I was young, and something I had a hard time with was being the “new girl” at school.
I could rattle on and on about stares, whispers, eating lunch with the teacher, etc. But the Lord used that experience to give me a heart (and a sensitivity) to those who feel left out.
What about you? What are some of your childhood or family experiences? I’d love to hear a part of your story!
Graffiti tweetable: We all have so much in common, no matter what side of the street we live on!
