Tell Me About Yourself


I tend to hate Facebook, Pinterest, and all other forms of social media because I instantly start comparing myself to what I see and realize I fall short in so many areas.

Even with resolutions for the new year (or insistence on a lack thereof), I'm lame.

Many times it robs the joy right out of my day.  It takes away from my marriage, my parenting, my teaching, my friendships, my holidays, my attitude.  You name it.  The enemy has a heyday in my envy.

It is ending right now.

I recently saw a challenge to combat this.  Join me, please!  Rather than think of all the things you are not, take a moment and add a comment to this post and tell me three things you are good at and one passion you have.

I'll go first.

[wow, this is a lot harder than i thought it would be.  i keep thinking of things and then adding qualifiers because i know a 'weakness' within that strength or i know someone who's better at that thing than i am so therefore i can't really claim it as a strength.  urgh!]

My name is Megan, and I'm good at leading others.  I'm incredibly empathetic.  I am very loyal.  I'm passionate about honesty and truth.

  8. yes harder than you think. My name is Kristin. I'm a good juggler (not literally), organizer, "connector" and problem solver. I have a passion for adoption, foster care and all kids realizing their God-given potential. I seek to love my amazing Heavenly Father by loving on those he puts in my path and the "least of these", wherever they may be.

    Love you, Megan!
