I started this blog thing years ago in August 2011.  I have made attempts to blog over the past three years of seminary, but it was like writing when drowning. But I have completed the bulk of my course work, so I know there is a God. I am currently in my capstone creation phase this fall. This allows me time to unravel a little and renew my passion for writing my ramblings. If you like what you read, share what it stirs in you or even share it with others. I write for you from me.

A little about me…

I have celebrated 16 years of wedded bliss and reality with my best friend for over 17 years. We have 3 wonderful kids that are all unique, amazing and different in their own way. Our first born is nearly a teenager. He loves talking, Scouts, reading, camping and science experiments.  Our daughter is a decade old. She is our creative soul and a planner!  She loves to spend time dancing, singing and nurturing/teaching her babydolls and us.  She is very sweet to her brothers.  Last but not least is our daring 6 year old red head boy.  He broke the “Wooldridge Mold”.  He is the fastest runner, our busiest explorer, our deep philosopher and biggest joker, oh and he gives the best hugs. You know the long lingering kind that truly fuel your soul to sing.

I have been a stay at home mom for nearly 13 years and I have found a groove that works for our family. (That grove doesn’t mean I have it figured out. It just means I am good with asking for help and having my family help us survive.) Twelve years ago, I joined a local MOPS group and I have been the Coordinator for 1o years.  This group has given me a chance to lead without working full time, support other women in my community and help refine my walk with God.  I also attend Central Baptist Theological Seminary.  I am pursuing a Masters of Divinity and loving every minute of it. I am currently working on my capstone project, which a ministry guide for the MOPS group I have lead for a decade. It will serve as a touchpoint for those in leadership and also as a sweet offering as my goodbye to meaningful work that touched every part of my life and taught me that I am called to pastor.

My life isn’t perfect as the paragraph above makes it seem.  But I have traveled through those harder times and found strength and support through them.

Hoping to use this blog as a spot to write my thoughts, feelings and stories as I keep on living life!  God Bless you and keep you. We each need to remember the Divine is within each of us. Be kind to yourself and to others.

  1. OOOPS! I’m a rookie when it comes to posting 🙂

    Kristin, You have such a wonderful gift of writing and sharing your story and Gods word. Selfishly, I would love for you to Blog ~ reading other peoples blogs is the only recreational reading and a feeling of community I have had access to for several years now. I look forward to future posts.
    Kindly,
    Carol

  2. Kristin, as someone who wanted to get as far away from Liberty (or insert any small town here) after graduating from LHS, this event has truly crystallized what a unique and supportive community it is. I now live in NYC and wish that I could just be there searching and loving and helping along side y’all. Please know that we are all across the country proclaiming our solidarity and lifting up our prayers that Chad will be found.

    • I appreciate your comment so much. I am not from Liberty, but I am from a smaller hometown and I think I felt the same as you did. I was ready to go upon graduation and I have rarely been back. It is interesting choosing as an adult a “hometown” to raise a family. It makes me wonder if they will feel the same way that I did some day. I hope that I can keep this time as a story in the lives of how a suburb became a stronger, united community that truly cared for one another.
      Thank you for commenting and I pray you are well in New York City.
