"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose." - Jim Elliot
My name is Katie.
I like bookstores, hot tea, traveling, laughing, and looking at the stars.
I am struggling to learn Spanish.
I am pursuing a career in law so that I can tangibly and practically make a difference in people's lives.
My life has been and is still being constantly transformed by community. I am who I am because of my best friends from Oxford, my "brothers and sisters." We are currently scattered all over the world, but they continue to encourage me, challenge me, make me laugh, and help me love Jesus more, daily. Lately I've been blessed with some pretty great friends in Lexington, too. So if you need a little love or some Friday night fun, come join the party as we enjoy and sharpen each other!
I currently live in Lexington, Kentucky so I can study at UK. I have been blessed to spend time in many different places, which results in my using the word "home" loosely. "Home" could refer to Mississippi, Kentucky, New Jersey, Guatemala, or Maine to name a few, depending on the day. Often, and probably forever, it will refer to the Brick House.
My story is wrapped up in The Story; it began when Jesus saved me, and He is writing it every day. He has a story for you, too, and I would love to talk to you about it.
This blog is a collection of random thoughts, pictures, quotes, songs, and stories that make me happy. I hope that they can make you happy too!
