I’m Carley. Wife to Nick. Minnesota Native. Lover of Nature. Book Nerd. Tea or Coffee -Doesn’t matter as long as it’s warm. Curious Adventurer. Social Justice Wannabe. Fair Trade Enthusiast. Recovering Perfectionist and People-Pleaser. Unapologetic Cat Person. I do youth ministry in Fargo, North Dakota and have my Master’s degree in Theology from Bethel Seminary in Minnesota. More specifically, I studied “Christian Thought,” so I have Christian thoughts on faith and life. I share some of that here.
I am a misfit who is in continual process. I follow a man named Jesus who loved the misfits and surrounded himself with them. I am so grateful and transformed by the reality that he accepts and loves me. I’ll be writing about how in-love I am with this Jesus and how He continues to change me and push me to grow in this life.The writing here may be both academic and artistic; beautiful and broken; eloquent and erroneous. It is the genuine work of both my heart and my head. Take it or leave it. If you take it, please take it with a grain of salt and a large measure of grace. Respond. Let us have a conversation about life together. Let’s ask questions, wonder out-loud, press in on the uncomfortable, grow, be transformed. Thanks for being here.
Here we go. I pray God is present in this place.
