Partially Because I’m a Nerd

Tomorrow, Matt and I will be going to Southern. I really am so excited! It’s a fun start to schooling that feels more like the “real deal” with each passing day. I can’t even imagine what Matt must be thinking about starting his final stage of schooling toward getting the degree that the Lord called him to about 3 or so years ago. Only knowing my husband he’d probably have some calm, cool response to my childish joy. You know, some logical, well-thought-out, “well, technically my schooling has been pursuing what God has called me to” or “well, we’ll just see how well I do in Seminary before getting all excited.” But I’m more than happy to run through my clover field with shoes tossed to the wind.

But even beyond the joys of moving forward with Matt’s schooling comes the excitement of pursuing our family goals and dreams together. I really feel like Matt and I, while him being the graded student, will walking forward together from start to finish in his Master’s of Divinity. It’s just so neat to watch him run after the Lord’s call on his life and I’m so blessed to be a part of it.

And then this dorky tendencies arises within me at the thought of reading Matt’s textbooks in apologetics, Biblical history, and even Greek. Yep, that’s right, Matt married a full out nerd who can’t wait to read textbooks. What a pick!

But it’s just neat to start to see the fruit of Matt’s perseverance. And it’s really neat to think of our steps toward God’s purpose in our lives. It kind of makes the sacrifices and the annoyances of the work field feel more worth it in my most impatient moments.

I’m so blessed that God has opened my mind to the joys of what feels like big steps in Him.

Congratulations, Matt, on being ordained and getting ready to finish your undergraduate degree. I am so proud of you.

– I love you.-


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.

  1. Can’t wait to hear about the trip! This is your adventure, too!! As you said, Matt is the student, but you are the ever-important supporter! Your support and encouragement will mean much to Matt throughout the process. When he graduates, you will graduate, too!! You’ll be the one without the cap and gown! 🙂
