1. What is your faith/denomination?
We belong to the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod—-ie. the conservative ‘branch’ of the Lutheran church. My husband grew up Lutheran while I journeyed through fundamentalism and then pop American evangelism before embracing Lutheran doctrine and practice. I often blog about my journey of faith in Christ. I recently wrote a post on Lent (new to me as a former Baptist) which you can read here
2. What type of camera do you use?
Nikon d90. I love it and really still BARELY know how to use it. I shoot in auto mode almost exclusively, which I am a wee bit ashamed to admit. I edit photos on iPhoto but plan to get photoshop soon. My advice for taking good pictures is: 1. Take a lot of pictures and a few of them will be great 2. Take pictures close up. Even closer.
3. How is been hard giving up your career?
I have written about this here.
But I will say that staying home with my children has been THE most blessed gift my husband could have given me. I feel honored to do it and eager to learn to do it well. I’ve never been more sure of anything—than that this is what I was made to do.
4. How do you manage to do it all?
I’m so glad you asked because it gives me a great opportunity to say absolutely, unequivocally that I DON’T MANAGE TO DO IT ALL. Not by a long shot. My bathrooms are dirty, I haven’t showered in two days, I have 76 unmatched socks sitting on top of my washing machine. My husband shakes his head at the outlet covers that I still haven’t replace from my kitchen remodel!
5. Do you have any outside help?
Not unless you count these two ‘merry maids’.
6. Where did you get your necklace?
I bought it here.
I love her stuff. And I love buying from mom-artists.
