Well hello! Chances are you've wandered you way over here from my favorite site, Stuff Christians Like. Especially since I did a guest post for Jon Acuff, the site's author, this little blog has taken off. (I highly suggest you check out that post. It's about my observations on Bible College love affairs, which is frightening and crazy rolled into one.)
Many of you have asked me about starting a blog and I have been putting it off. Or, to tell the truth, I've been hiding. It's easy to post comments and talk smack with Jon. Maintaining my own blog that is fresh and original is much harder. Being sarcastic comes naturally to me, but being cool does not.
I'm creative with just enough literacy to make me dangerous. A few days ago, when e-mailing Jon he said the following:
"You are cooler than me, which would be a compliment if I weren't such a dork."
To which I responded:
"No, I am a dork, but a cool dork. Which basically means I have good hair and an annoying personality. My advice to you? Get some hair product, use it, and see if things don't start looking up."
I started commenting on Stuff Christians Like in March (under the guise of "anonymous" no less) and everything just kind of snowballed from there. I kept posting because it released the sarcastic beast inside me. I didn't know what to pick for a user name so since I live in Louisville, KY, Stacy From Louisville was born. I kept leaving comments on that site and Jon contacted me, saying I was famous. He said people loved my stories and he was sure I'd get lots of traffic. So, here I am. And here you are - one way or the other, we found each other. (Reunited and it feels so good...)
Though I post as "Stacy from Louisville" I want you to know that I'm really just Stacy. What I mean is that though I may be ridiculous at times I'm just a normal Believer, wife, and mom. My life has had some pretty rocky pitfalls and I'll share them with you. Then, of course, there are marriage snags, my battle with pride, parenting and the search for God's heart that sometimes leaves me baffled. But all of that is okay. Because there's the other side...
I'm a Bible college grad - I could mock that all day. And will. There's my 4 year run as a sex ed. teacher. Oh yes, I have walked many a school campuses only to hear, screamed from across the lawn, "Hey! Sex Lady!" Then there are my thoughts on church culture, my love for creativity... And life. Plus, I live in Kentucky. Need I say more?
I'm glad you came to visit. Maybe you'll come back. But if you don't I'll still be posting comments on SCL. I'm crazy like that.
I'll always be open to your questions and ideas for blog entries. Help me get the creative ball rolling. Really, it's nice to meet you.
