I currently work as an engineering technician for NuTech Energy Alliance in Atascosita just north of Houston, TX. While that pays the bills I attend Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary Havard School of Theology in Houston. Before that I left the farm lands of west Texas for Texas A&M and graduated in 2002 with a B.S. in Kinesiology and a minor in Health Education. After student teaching and passing what seemed like a certification/licensing hundred tests (it was actually 5) I started working at The Woodlands HS as an athletic trainer. Then after much prayer and study of the Bible I left that job 2.5 years later to start full time at SWBTS and teach. That puts us where I am today as a teacher and a student.
Current Reading: On Christian Teaching by St. Augustine; Knowing Scripture by R.C. Sproul; Introduction to Biblical Hermeneutics by Walter Kaiser and Moises Silva; Treatise on the Virtues by Thomas Aquinas; Preaching the Whole Bible as Crhistian Scripture by Graeme Goldsworthy; and Romans in English and Greek
Books Finished in 2008: Jesus’ Blood and Righteousness: Paul’s Theology of Imputation, By: Brian Vickers WOO HOO. This one took me a while; The Future of Justification by John Piper; On Free Choice of the Will by St. Augustine, The Art of Personal Evangelism by Will McRaney Jr.; Evangelism nd the Sovereignty of God by J.I. Packer
I am a Christian of the Reformed breed. I don’t know how else to describe my love for Christ without sounding cliche, so I will leave it at that. I am also a graduate of Texas A&M University, class of 2002, with a BA in History. I was heavily involved in youth ministry for 2 years after finishing school and marrying Dirk(woohoo!), and then I picked up a teaching certificate to teach secondary history. I taught 8th grade US history for a year and a half and then I did a year of World History, Psychology, and Sociology at a new high school while pregnant(I do not recommend this). Josiah was born in March of 2007 and I have stayed home ever since. I love being Josiah’s mom and there is nothing else I’d rather do than take care of him full-time. I have many quirks and eccentricities, but mostly I like to be with my church family, read, run, jog slowly, play with Josiah, drink good coffee(mostly what we make at home, I’m pretty picky), build and refine my Amazon wishlist, watch Josiah play with his friends, watch Aggie football, bake, spend quality time with friends and loved ones, go on fancy dates with Dirk, walk around bookstores, and read blogs. Things I would like to do: set up a vegetable and herb garden, run a marathon, participate in a triathlon, turn myself into an organized, tidy, and punctual person, relearn Greek, dabble in Hebrew(under Dirk’s tutelege), and start Josiah’s baby book(I’m kidding, I have the first page done). Its an exciting life I lead.
