  1. 12. I do ALL THE TIME.
    14. I’m right there with you. I want to release a book of poetry. I’m right there on the edge of doing it, and then just like you, I worry no one will read it. It’s a dream I can’t let go.

  2. Hi, Trisha, Thank you for liking “God of the Unexpected on hisdeeplove.
    Your about is fun. Here are some my factoids:
    3. I prefer the mountains, too.
    7. I’m an INFJ.
    I like to write and think of publishing, but I’m not sure about that just yet.
    I belong to Jesus; without Him, I would be nobody.
    Abundant blessings on you.

  3. OK…so…well, I just followed your blog, even though at the moment I went to it for the first time i was hit in the face with women’s underwear (that didn’t sound right, did it?). I am glad to meet a former Pharisee, but you’re definitely the first one I’ve done so by way of “Busty” problems 😉

    Seriously, God bless! (But I’m gonna have some ‘splainin to do when my wife sees that picture pop up on my WordPress reader. Good grief!)

    • LAUGH. OUT. LOUD Recovering Legalist! I still struggle with my inner Pharisee but Jesus is redeeming me! I don’t usually blog about underwear, but love talking about the Bible and my deep love of grace! I changed the name to Former Pharisee to focus on grace, which is my past and my future.

      Thanks for the comment!

  4. Trisha… thank you for liking our blog post… The Practice of Practice. We’d love you to join our conversation, and add your wisdom, insight, questions… Also, love learning about you in your random and fun widows into your life. I would love to connect you with my niece, Ashby Kidd. She and her husband live on the orphanage she founded in Kenya… she would love to connect with you… maybe you already know her? Let me know if you would like an introduction.
    Blessings to you and yours,

  5. Hi, Trisha, Thank you for dropping in, glad you enjoyed “A Time To Remember” I look forward to reading your writings and invite you to stop in anytime, take your shoes get comfortable and stay a while. May God Continue To Bless You and Your Family. God’s Peace!

    • Thank you Paula! We are just starting to homeschool and it’s kicking my tail. We will have to adjust the schedule so everyone’s happy including mom. Hats off to you for schooling 4 kids!

  6. Trisha, I don’t know how I missed when you began following my blog … maybe it was because on the day you celebrated your 7th anniversary, which also marked my 42nd birthday, also happened to be the day my daddy met Jesus face to face. I suppose maybe in the blur of life since then I missed a few things.

    But I am so very grateful you found me and decided to follow my blog, because today I’ve been blessed by your blog and your writing and mostly your heart for Jesus.

    I am a recovering Pharisee myself, who is prone to worrying and hates the fact that I can’t seem to quit feeling the knots of anxiety inside. And I hope that one day God lets me write a book, but right now I spend the vast majority of my time homeschooling my five teens and tweens … caring for my two sweet foster babies. Seven kids = very little time for writing or blogging.

    And I’m always looking for God’s grace. Today, I found some of that here on your little place in blogosphere. Many prayers for you today from a fellow Jesus-lover and writer-wanna-be in Cajun Country!

    • Paige! Thank you for your sweet comment here. I’m sorry to hear about your dad, but now that he’s with Jesus he’s probably feeling sorry for us.

      Isn’t it wonderful how God allows us to see more of His grace? I have to keep reminding myself to open my eyes. May God pour more and more strength on you as you wait on Him. Blessings on you as you prime those little hearts to know Jesus. Parenting/Nurturing is the most important job. Books can wait.

      Blessings to you!

  7. You know, it really surprised me to realize that you’re a mom. I think it’s awesome, and you totally burst all my stereotypes of young mamas. I want to be like you when I grow up!
    THIS is such a FUN list! I loved reading through it, and I want you to write a bestseller, too!
