Top Ten Tuesday at Many Little Blessings

I’m headed to the 2:1 Conference this weekend thanks to many wonderful sponsors. Here’s a few things to know about me before the conference…

  1. I’m on the short side. I’m only 5’5″ so Jennifer Janes is going to tower above me.
  2. I deal with depression. I even wrote an ebook on depression called Finding Joy in Depression. {Want to write a review or do a giveaway? Contact me to get a review copy.}
  3. I have a BA Bible and an MA in Old Testament Studies.
  4. I’ve dabbled in 5 languages. I know French, Hebrew, Greek, some Aramaic, plus English. I even started to learn Syriac at one point. I don’t regularly use most of my foreign languages any more, but bits and pieces are still rattling around in my head. And English, we’ll I’ll let you be the judge on that one.
  5. I’m a geek. I like the technical and organizational aspects of blogging. I even offer monthly maintenance and other technical services to other bloggers. Again. Geek.
  6. I wear glasses and I can’t stand the thought of getting contacts. Not going to happen. Ever.
  7. I’m riding in a van on Friday for 7+ hours to get to 2:1 with my husband, my 5 year old Jonathan, and my 1 year old Jacob. And Kela is hitching a ride with us. Pray that Kela and I survive. If we have an odd glazed over look, you’ll know that Jonathan talked our ears off for the whole trip.
  8. I don’t get out of the house much because we only have one car. If Josh can’t ride his motorcycle to work for some reason, and often at last minute notice, then I don’t have  vehicle.
  9. I giggle and talk way to fast when I get nervous.
  10. I’m borderline introvert/extrovert anytime I’ve ever taken a personality type test, but I do get overwhelmed in large crowds and I don’t even care to go to places like the grocery store alone. I like to have a buddy. Who is going to be my buddy?

There you go. 10 Things about me for those attending the 2:1 Conference this weekend.


  1. Nice to meet you!! I’m so looking forward to finally meeting some amazing online friends in real life!

  2. I only speak English and just switched back to contacts after wearing glasses for six years (contacts almost 20 years before that).

    I’ll steer you in the right direction at 2:1, since I’ll be able to see over your head. 😉

    I hope you and Kela survive the trip! Good luck!

  3. You won’t be the shortest one at the conference!  I am only 5’2!  LOL  I am also traveling with my husband and 3 children on Thursday.  I wanted to leave early so I could get some rest before the conference starts!  Looking forward to meeting you this weekend!  Safe travels!

    Excited to meet you after chatting on Twitter! I’m an extrovert on my favorite topics, but an introvert in groups of complete strangers. :) Safe travel–maybe your little ones will sleep on the ride!
