I have been married for 7 years to JG, a computer programmer who graduated from ETSU in 2004. We have two sons: James, who was born in January of 2007, and Jonathan, who was born in August of 2008. We also have a dog, Kaley, who used to be the baby of the family…

I graduated from ETSU in 2006 with a hard-earned degree in Philosophy (which makes me smile…the philosophy and the graduating). I especially enjoy metaphysics and epistemology, and have a serious leaning toward more analytic philosophy (as opposed to the continental sort, which just gives me a headache…) I have a real appreciation for philosophy of science, strangely enough, as I have never particularly excelled in the sciences. Of course, due in large part to my love of politics, I enjoy political philosophy and philosophy of law. I loathe existentialism and all sorts of phenomenology. Classical and eastern philosophies do nothing for me either.

I am a member of Midway Presbyterian Church. I am reformed, calvinistic, postmillennial, and presuppositional…and a Puritan wannabe! My husband will be beginning studies for his Masters of Divinity, Lord willing, in the Fall.

I love to read, especially news, politics, philosophy (on the aforementioned topics), and theology, although I do have a not-so-secret love for historical Christian fiction and the Twilight series!

I’m a runner – I ran my first half-marathon in October 2009. I love watching the news. I’m a voracious reader. I like listening to music, but I love singing along. I want a HUGE family (like, 10 kids…seriously). I love working in my vegetable garden. I’m organized to a fault. Google spreadsheets are my favorite. I probably should have studied accounting. I can’t stand to leave dishes in the sink, to go more than two days without vacuuming, or leaving clutter laying around when I go to bed. I’m a little insecure, but less so now that I’m a mommy. I will never, ever be as good a person as I want to be. I think too much. I tend to make my faith more of an intellectual thing rather than a passion thing – I wish I didn’t do that! I love to write.

“Do you think I’ll wake up one morning and regret not being a lawyer? Well, not as much as I’ll regret not having a family, not being there to raise them. I know exactly what I’m doing and it doesn’t make me any less smart.” Joan, “Mona Lisa Smile” (this quote sums up the conversation I’ve had umpteen times about my decision to be a housewife rather than a lawyer.)
