Thanks for checking out my blog! My name is Carrie. I am, first and foremost, a follower of Christ. He is my life and joy. I’ve loved Him for most of my life and can’t imagine a day without Him. I’m in my mid-thirties and have finally met the man of my dreams after many long years of waiting. We were married in December of 2012.
A few of my endearing quirks include: an unfounded deep affection for elephants, love of most things sci-fi and fantasy, and a little bit of an obsessive-compulsive disorder…including preferring an even number of ice cubes in my cup. I have an innate knack for finding humor in just about everything, even if I’m the only one that finds it funny…
I have a degree in music and another in counseling. I’m still trying to figure out how those two go together. I work as a secretary for some amazing faculty at a Seminary in the South. For now, I’m enjoying using my gifts to help these godly men and to serve in my local church. With this blog, I hope to share some of my genuine struggles so that in my honest pursuit of growth you will be encouraged to press on. So if you decide to follow along, just be aware it could be a bit of a bumpy (but hopefully, amusing) ride.
If you would like to contact me with questions or suggestions (or encouragement), you can reach me at surprisedbylove2 @ gmail [dot] com. Please be patient for a response. Blessings to you!
