I have a secret...

Really. I do. A little secret that when Matt reads this he'll say "Why don't you tell me these things?"

I don't tell anyone these little quirks about me because..well..I don't really know. Maybe I feel like its dorky? That others will judge me or make fun of me. But how ridiculous does that sound?

So here goes....

I have a secret love of writing. See, its dorky.

I express myself better that way. Far better than speaking. Its hard for me to talk about feelings or thoughts but give me some paper or a computer, and I can write it out for you easily. I think that's why I enjoy having a blog. Not because I want the whole world to know my deepest inner thoughts. They aren't really that deep or important. But because its a way for me to get things out.

When I was in kindergarten or first grade, my best friend and I would write books. I would write and she would illustrate. We always said that one day we'd write a book together. In college, I majored in journalism and she majored in graphic design. So see, those kids out there that say you want to be an astronaut when you are 5, you may still have that desire when you grow up! So Laura, one day, this book will happen!

Sometimes I still do have a desire to write a book. I have no idea what it would be about. Probably fiction because I'm not smart enough about anything non-fiction. Or maybe some children's books. I do have a few ideas of those in my head.

So, my dorky confession is out. I love to write. Just sit down and let my thoughts and ideas flow. Sometimes about life, my family and how great God is. Sometimes about absolutely nothing. I used to journal a lot. Maybe I should start again. In a real, paper journal where the world wide web can't see. But also, I feel like blogging is good for me. Since I'm not good at sharing things about myself with my friends, its a way to let you in. Let you see the real me and my thoughts.

So if you now think I'm a dork and are judging me, you might want to unsubscribe from my blog because I might just start writing on here more. :)


  1. This was NO secret to me. So, I don't think this will be a secret to Mattyboy, either.

  2. You are an awesome writer. You need to put to practice this great gift that God has given you. And yes, you need to write that book for Laura to illustrate.


Thanks for leaving us a note! We love hearing from you!
