Hello world!

Hello world!” is the sample post WordPress writes as part of its installation. It was also the first program I coded in college. Visual Basic? Haha. Yes, believe it or not, I graduated in 2004 with a BS Computer Science degree from Greenville College. Surprised, aren’t you? I remember bargaining with my parents in high school all with hopes of going to a small private Christian school… The deal? A computer science degree that would allow me to pay off all those pretty pennies of student debt. After graduating from college, I landed a job as a business representative at a small Chevy Dealership in Tacoma, WA. Pretty far from my programming courses… And I had also decided that I liked people more than computers. For 6 years I served that dealership and for several of them drove brand new Chevy’s. In March of this year (2010), I quit my job and am now a stay at home… photographer, wife, 2010 Centurion and cinematographer wannabe.

One of the first things I want to share with you is something my pastor, Mark, talked about last night at church… We are on the 49th sermon in the book of Luke. Last night’s topic: Spiritual Warfare. Mark shared a story which provided a profound context to the subject. Prior to our attendance at Mars Hill Church, Ryan and I were very involved with a church where spiritual warfare was a main subject. But the story last night was different than I’d ever heard… Zeus, Pergamum, Turkey, Germany, Satan, Altar, Hitler. I want to do some more research before spilling the story, but that’s the first thing I’d like to share… Hopefully, sooner than later. 🙂

I’m also an avid resource sharer. God has given me this niche for finding information and a passion for hungering and thirsting after the things of Him. And so you will soon see the fruits of His gifts to me.. Videos, articles, etc…

Goodbye world!

[…] so one in one of my first blog posts, I referred to a portion of one of my pastor’s sermons about the altar of Zeus and its […]
