Although I (Wendy) started this blog in 2008, I have been publishing my thoughts online for a while. My old "thoughts" page where I used to post can be found here. This contains writings that go back to 2003, however many of the links are dead at this point. I'm working to get those old posts back up. My poems page is also on my old site.
Blog roll... (blogs I read, even if I don't always agree with)
Today marked a special day for Daisy. She met one of David's paternal aunts for the first time. David's father had 3 sisters and so far none had met Daisy. Today, we arrived in Almont (middl of nowhere, Colorado) to visit Aunt Elaine and Uncle Terry. They have a beautiful home on 35 acres of land.
Elaine, Daisy's great aunt, was so excited to meet the little girl named after her mother. She gave her a puzzle an a tutu, and Daisy loved both.
After eating an amazing Asian-style dinner, Daisy was tuckered out and we all went to bed pretty early.
We are leaders with New Life Christian Fellowship in Blacksburg. We used to spend a lot of time with college students as part of NLCF Campus, and this is how our home was named "houseofchinn." Some of the students in the bible study we led started calling our house that and it just stuck. So "HOC" was born. Even though we don't lead a bible study for undergrads anymore, we do lead one with the Downtown Congregation of New Life Christian Fellowship. Our group has married couples, kids, graduate students, public school teachers, community members, you name it. We still love having people over, building into lives, and we love working with our local church.
One of my (Wendy's) roles is speaking periodically on Sundays, and I'm working on getting a page up soon with links to some past talks. Stay tuned...
