Hi there, I’m Kristy! The (more-than) slightly introverted writer behind-the-screen.
I tend to be a human “doing” instead of a human “being”… so my first inclination is to tell you everything I do. (Which, honestly, is quite a bit on most days!)
But, since we’re going to be friends, I’ll just get real with you and share a few things about who I am.
Maybe you’ll relate to a few of these random facts about my family and my personality?
According to the Meyer Briggs personality profile, I’m INTJ. Takeaway: I’m an over-thinker and introvert.
On the Enneagram, I’m a type 1 (wing 9). Takeaway: I’m a moralistic perfectionist with high ideals.
I’m happiest when I’m curled up with an inspiring book.
My favorite season of the year is autumn.
I’m a shameless fan of Kate Middleton and her classy wardrobe.
I love to wear hats, sip hot tea, and do other “British” things, just because.
I’m a pastor’s wife.
I love rainy days, Christmas, and cold weather.
I’m articulate. Processing life and then expressing myself through words, written and spoken, has always come pretty naturally for me.
Oddly enough, I’m often very reserved in public. Small-talk and chit-chat feel deeply difficult for me.
I’m an English grammar tutor at our local Classical Conversations community. I love English grammar.
Please don’t ask about my math skills.
I’m the busy, blessed mom of five amazing kids.
I homeschool the aforementioned kids, and let me tell you I’m not cut out for it!
People usually assume that I must be super patient. I’m not patient.
I’m married to a wise and wonderful Mr Steady guy. He is patient.
I’m a homemaker, but I’d really rather be a queen and hire a maid.
Most of our family is gluten-free.
I know all about homeschooling a strong-willed child. So does my mom.
Our family lives in a big, old fixer-upper house on two acres in North Texas.
I enjoy country living, as long as I’m within driving distance of some really awesome shopping.
I’m fiercely focused. It’s scary sometimes!
I have lightening-fast typing skills. That comes in pretty handy for a blogger.
It’s hypothetically possible that I could live off hot tea, chocolate, wi-fi and good books.
I’m a bit of a morning person.
I have no sense of direction. What. So. Ever.
Sometimes people think that I’m pretty confident. I’m really more “self-sustained” than confident.
I like quick hair do’s, short lines, long books and slow mornings.
My favorite colors are pink and red. I’m a February baby, so go figure!
Jeremy and I- we’ve been a team since 2002!
I’m passionate about living and loving well.
This blog right here is very much about cultivating a space for other women to feel understood, inspired and equipped in their own journeys of living and loving well.
I would love to connect with you in one of my private Facebook groups:
I believe God put me on this earth to live and love well.
At the end of the day, I hope I have inspired someone else to do that too.
I’m so glad you’re here!
Now that you’ve read all about me, why don’t you introduce yourself?
Drop me a comment below and tell me something about you.
Here’s to living & loving well-
