Self Study Sunday: Life Time Line

Casseruola Dolce Della Vita
There is nothing quite as revealing as looking at the events in your life that make you who you are. The truth is, no one person's time-line looks the same as another's. So this is our project today, create yours! If you need a little more information, you can check out my inspiration here. The dates are not as important as the events. Write down only the events that matter to you, not what "should" be on it.

Here is a look at mine. Notice how few dates are included.

  • July 1987- Birth
  • Moved to VA. I also associate this time with my Dad becoming a part of our lives. (My dad is actually my step father, but he has never been that to me.)
  • Saved by Grace and called into missions. I have my parents' fabulous neighbor to thank for that.
  • 7th grade- pulled out of public schools and started homeschooling.  This really OPENED a lot of doors for me. See below.
  • 2 mission trips to the Philippines.
  • Teen Summer camp- I decided to go to the tiny Christian university in Oklahoma, Southwestern Christian University.
  • 2005- Mission trip to the place that has always had my heart, Japan.
  • Chris- All you need to know is he was abusive and I was naive.
  • Andrew- My true knight in shinning armor came along.
  • 2007 Left my life and love in VA and headed to OK for school.
  • Dustin- A good friend I met in school who followed my lead and moved back to VA after college.
  • South Africa- I spent my last semester at school interning overseas.
  • 2009- First real job as an Instructional assistant.
  • Jan.  2010 Married my prince.
  • Carlie- God's way of telling me I'm not alone and friends do exsist.
  • Dec. 2010- Benjamin was born!
  • Squash- I miscarried right before Ben's first birthday. It was early on, so the only name we had was "Squash".
  • 2012- The move. We moved in with the in-laws.
  • Nov. 2012- Henry was born!
  • Blogging
So, this is my life in a nutshell. Yes, there is a lot more, but this is what made me!
