things i’ve learned in seminary (pt. 1)

Long time no post. Things have been pretty intense with this week being finals/papers-due week. The to-do list is wrapping up nicely, but I’m in for a long couple of days leading up to my one (and only) exam on Friday. That means that I am finished with my first year of grad school in 2 days!

I originally planned that this blog would be about ordinary life – the things I do and learn – but I realize that I mostly blog about crafts and food, and less about thoughts. I don’t have any recipes to post today, because I’ve been living on toast, spinach salad, m&ms and coffee. So… because the semester is coming to an end, and school-work is on my mind, I thought I’d share a little bit about what I’ve been thinking/writing/learning lately. This will be the first in a series of maybe 3-4 posts on “Things I’ve Learned in Seminary.” 🙂

girls reunion and craft project

Lauren in married, lives in KY, and works with kindergartners. Allison is doing Teach for America in Indianapolis. Here I am in Georgia. Needless to say, coordinating our schedules to be all together in the same city at the same time is a challenge.
