About Me

I'm day dreamer, star gazer, well wisher, and free with whimsy.

Most of all, I'm completely, unapologetic-ally ME!

I currently live in Kentucky with my husband and new Tabby kitty, Miso. Although I'm a southern girl at heart, I lived in NY for 9 years where I met and married my husband of 10 years. He's a fuzzy man-bear. I work as a case manager for people with intellectual/developmental disabilities. One of my passions is helping people find their voice and knowing what they're capable of. My husband and I pastor together at a small, country church and I'm also pursuing ordination. My life did a 180* when I came to Jesus, and I love sharing my story.

I'm a, "stop and smell the roses," type lady! It's not uncommon for me to spontaneously take off and drive. I love day trips to cutesy, little villages, farm markets, and state parks. Hiking and exploring waterfalls is my new craze. I crave the unique and different life brings.

I enjoy spring showers, summer nights, autumn bonfires, and moonlit snowfall. I find comfort in nature, oddities, and the hilarity life brings. I love making the old new again!

I fancy good coffee, crunchy bagels, hot tea, dark chocolate, all ethnic foods, and extra sharp cheese. I'm a foodie and develop my own recipes. I plan on having a cookbook one day.

I enjoy country, vintage, and retro styles. I love pin-up hair, bright red lip stick, and heels. Okay, I really mean comfortable flats. hehe

Psalm 145 was for Profile Bible verse #5

Fabriqueen on Jun 27, 2018:

Psalm 145:3-6 Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts. They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty--and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They tell of the power of your awesome works -- and I will proclaim your great deeds.

We spent today in the mountains of North Carolina. I was in awe of the beauty of God's creation!

Hugs, Diane

Profile Bible Verse #5

2 Chronicles 10:16

16 When all Israel saw that the king refused to listen to them, they answered the king: “What share do we have in David, what part in Jesse’s son? To your tents, Israel! Look after your own house, David!” So all the Israelites went home.

Hello! I hope this verse for the Profile Bible Verse #12 Swap speaks to you today!

Hi I'm your partner for the Profile Swap #10 I'm not sure what happened as I did this on the weekend but none of them saved! I'm so sorry! Here is the quote I picked for this swap!

“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” ― Brené Brown

Profile Quote #11

“No woman wants to be in submission to a man who isn't in submission to God!” ― T.D. Jakes
