About Me:

Definitely Gen Y. I have two parents and two brothers and one of them is a natural. I love him but he beats me at everything.

I live in Texas but didn't try to get here as fast as I could like some bumper stickers here read. I came here against my will and still don't appreciate that there are Texas-edition Ford F150s.

I spend a lot of time on the water, mainly wakeboarding. Right now I'm working on a backside 180. It's basic but I'm still a novice.

I'm passionate about the Middle East but haven't traveled there yet... I read a lot about it and try to keep up with the news from that region. However scared the typical American is of Muslims, they still need Jesus!

Favorite Books: 

The Scarlet Letter, Conflict and Culture in the Middle East, anything by CS Lewis or George MacDonald, Albert Camus' fiction

Favorite Music: 

Addrienne Young, Casting Crowns, , Miles Davis, Third Day, Phillip Telfer, Simon and Garfunkel, John Denver, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, Switchfoot, Hillsong United, Christ for the Nations, Shawn McDonald, Jack Johnson

Does Texas have snow this time of year?

I've been to a couple of concerts that come to mind - Dad took me to see Andre Rieu and the Strauss Orchestra, and a friend took me to a Riverdance show last year. I'd like to go to a Selah concert next time they're in the area, as I really enjoy their music. That's neat that you were able to see John Waller - I just discovered his music after seeing "Fireproof" and hearing his song "While I'm Waiting" on it. Smile

My immediate family - parents, two younger brothers, and younger sister - live with me. Or I live with them. Razz Mom's extended family lives about 4 hours away in SW Ohio, so we see them every month or two, and Dad's family is all in the Dallas, TX area, so we see them once a year or so.

Are you at all familiar with a place called Brazos de Dios, near Waco? They're a Christian homeschool community, a group of families who have chosen to live close together and share (to some extent) land and animals, etc. They have learned a lot of old-fashioned skills, and each Thanksgiving host a really neat homestead fair. We've been a couple of times and thoroughly enjoyed it. Smile

Aha...found the song title, "Today". Smile Still looking for which CD includes this one, and another favorite by him, "Follow Me".

Does the rest of your family live nearby, or are you all spread out? How long have you lived in Texas?

Favorite MacDonald books - definitely the ones about Malcolm, and currently re-reading "A Shopkeeper's Daughter". Smile

Are you familiar with a song by John Denver that includes the line, "A million tomorrows shall all pass away e'er I forget all the joys that are mine today"? My mom likes his music, and I've been trying to find that song but we can't remember the title. Maybe I should google it. Smile

Happy New Year to you too! I don't envy you standing out in the cold like that at Times Square. We recently were a part of a Do-It-Yourself Messiah Concert. We had to stand outside in the cold in downtown Chicago until they opened the doors of the opera house. It was freezing that night! But singing the Messiah was a neat experience.

My family and I live in NE Ohio, in a small university town. All the conveniences of libraries and stores close by, but close enough to "escape" to Amish country or the lake for a day of relaxing and beautiful scenery. Smile

Do you have a favorite (or couple favorites) book by George MacDonald? Do you like to read the originals, or reprints (like Michael Phillips editions)?

Just curious - where did you live before you moved to Texas? I grew up in the Dallas area, and have been happy to get away from the heat/humidity/big city combination...so I tend to sympathize with those who are stuck there! Laughing
