I’m the daughter of a minister. As a matter of fact, on my father’s side of the family, almost every other male for generations back is a minister. You’d think I would have a good grounding in at least the religious philosophy that my family has been in for years. But no. Somehow I missed that religious tutelage that would bring me closer to God. There are many and varied reasons for this that we don’t need to go into here. Suffice it to say that I was in my mid-thirties before I truly felt that I had a connection with and a desire to further seek out God.
Everyone has a different path to or away from God and I’m not sure half of us are even looking to go in any particular direction. If you are looking, this site is a collection of essays on my personal thoughts on the jagged path to a spirituality I’m still working on. I’ve also included comments on religious books, websites, organizations, etc. that have shaped where I am and that you may find assistance from as well. I would encourage anyone to comment, agree, disagree, love or loath as you feel is appropriate.
I was born, raised and have lived most of my life in Houston, Texas. Mother of 3 awesome kids and addicted to learning. Profession: TBD. Passions: History, Religion, Genealogy, Family. Read: Non-fiction (a non-fiction bigot is my husband’s term for it) but I do enjoy science fiction and of course religion – if there’s a difference ;).
