Routine Ramblings of an Occasionally Interesting Texan

Doodle Bug
25 September 1961
"I'm from Texas."

I was raised in a Christian, Navy family. I prayed to Jesus to be my savior when I was only 2, then I was baptized when I was 6. I spent the early part of my life surrounded by church and learning about being a Christian. When I moved away from home and made choices independent of my parents' influence, I stopped attending services, and gradually I turned my back on Jesus entirely. Oh, I still believed, but there was nothing in my life that showed the fruit of the spirit; I believed, but I had no desire to follow.

In 2004, while I was going through a lot of stressful events, I began attending services at Quest Community Church in Lexington. Since then, I joined a Life Group, and learned deeper knowledge about being a Christian and about me. I learned that being a Christian isn't merely about what happens after death, but that a true relationship with Christ transforms ones life. On April 30, 2006, I prayed to ask Jesus to be Master of my life. I'd be happy to discuss this with anyone who is curious - my life took an interesting journey to the place where I needed this prayer. I am now learning what it means to listen to and live in God's will.

I was born in Key West, and lived with my parents in DC, TX, Iceland & CA before I got married. As my father was in the Navy, home was always really Texas, where my grandparents lived.

I am divorced. My ex-husband and I have two sons, born in Lexington, in 1989 and 1994.

We met at Rice University in 1978, married in 1982, and divorced in 2019. We lived in Houston until we moved to Nicholasville KY in 1987. I moved out July of 2017. I worked as a systems programmer until my oldest was born. Now I work as an ECM Technician in operations at a BPO location of the ECM divison of Konica Minolta. My older son graduated UK in 2013 with a BSME, and is now working at an engineering firm in Houston, TX. My younger son is working as a chef at a turkish/pizza restaurant in Lexington. He is currently on break from his food science degree plan at UK.
