About

First Dance

Six years after I met a brilliant, handsome second year cadet at an academic conference, my life bears no semblance of my former dreams. Four moves, a year in Europe, a graduate degree and a half later, I wouldn’t give it up for the world. Pursuing my career while adapting to life in Kentucky and then Arizona, surviving our first deployment one day, one recipe, one diy project, one care package at a time.

“When I get honest, I admit I am a bundle of paradoxes. I believe and I doubt, I hope and I get discouraged, I love and I hate, I feel bad about feeling good, I feel guilty about not feeling guilty. I am trusting and suspicious. I am honest and I still play games. Aristotle said I am a rational animal; I say I am an angel with an incredible capacity for beer. To live by grace means to acknowledge my whole life story, the light side and the dark. In admitting my shadow side I learn who I am and what God’s grace means.” – Brennan Manning
