Flowers in Meinong

me and my hubby :)

In a Nutshell
I live in Tainan County in southern Taiwan with my husband, Lawrance. Currently we are both working as English teachers. We love to tell people about Jesus and look forward to the day when we can be full time career missionaries.

I’ve lived in Taiwan as a tent-maker missionary for 7 years. While here, I met and fell in love with my husband, who is Taiwanese. We got married, however, in my home state–one of the best places in the world–Texas!

A Bit More
My husband and I met through a mutual friend.  She basically begged him to go on “just one date” with me.  We dated for about four months before he proposed, and we married three months later.  It was one whirlwind of a year, perhaps the most perfect year of my life.

I was 30 when we married.  It was hard being single in my 20s.  I blogged about it a lot as I struggled through the process of praying and hoping and waiting, waiting, waiting.

My mom, dad, and kid brother, Sam, live near Austin, Texas.  Both my parents are teachers, and my dad is also a bi-vocational pastor.  My sister, Sarah, and my brother-in-law, Chad, both work for the Arlington Police department.  Everyone in my family enjoys laughing–and laughing loud–something I didn’t realize on my own (an “outsider” pointed it out to me).

Since my husband and I are tentmakers, we support our missionary work by teaching English.  While, my husband enjoys teaching junior high students, I enjoy teaching college students. I teach public speaking, biz English conversation, and English composition (the essay) regularly.  I have also taught Songs for EFL Teaching, Movie English, Internet English, listening, and pronunciation.

And, last but definitely not least, I am a daughter of the King. I am saved by grace–something I of course do not deserve!  I desire for all that I am and all that I do to bring glory to God.  I desire to know him and make him known–this desire is the foundation of all that I am.

Thanks for stopping by following an unknown path!  I hope you find something that “tickles your fancy!”
