It begins. The challenge that I spoke about here.
Day 1: The story of your life in 250 words or less (or one paragraph... no one will be counting your words, probably). Here goes:
I was born and raised in a small town in North Carolina in May 1982. I was born as an only child but just after a quick 23 months, I was presented with a sibling – a brother. I will never forget my mom recounting the story of when she was changing his diaper one day and he peed all over the place and I told her to “make him do it again”.
Fast forward some years – I became a child of God in the early 90s. I treasure the relationship that I have with my Lord and Savior.
My parents were divorced when I was in the seventh grade. Yes, that time was challenging but I am thankful that my parents have remained friends as things could have definitely been worse.
It was the eighth grade when I started stalking my future husband – a story for another day.
Through high school, I followed the academic plan that would get me to college. I marched the flute in the marching band and traveled to New York City and Orlando for band trips. I attended college in Greensboro, NC and moved back to my hometown after graduation.
