My name is Julie. I live on a pleasant peninsula and I work from home. I’m a speaker.
I started this blog for about three reasons: 1. I needed a place where I could blow off some steam ‘cuz I was REALLY frustrated with my church. 2. I wanted to expand my conversational horizons. ‘Cuz there aren’t a lot of people around here who like to talk about the stuff I like to talk about. i.e. God. 3. I was wondering if anyone would care what I have to say. ‘Cuz I wrote a book and I was wondering whether I should bother publishing it.
At the start I named this blog The Reluctant Baptist (subtitle: a non-denominational woman trapped in a Baptist body), because that’s what I was. When I finally set out to find a new church, I changed the title to reflect where I am now – just wanting to shed some Light and share some life.
Jesus said, “Come, let us reason together.” And that’s it. That’s what I want from blogging. I want to reason together.
I love Jesus, I love logic, I love thinkers and I love sharers. So, read, think and share. And stay as long as you’d like. I’d offer you a cup of hot, freshly ground, pressed or percolated coffee and a warm, gooey baked good, if I could. That’s another little something about me: I love to feed people healthy, flavorful, beautiful food.
Perhaps we’ll become friends.
