It is my fervent desire to use this blog as a way to reflect critically and publicly- and therefore with accountability- on my life. I recently realized that I need to take stock of the ways in which I fight patriarchal institutions daily, to describe these battles (here I am, using patriarchal battle imagery), to recognize triumphs , and to become a stronger, more liberated person in the process. I am a 29 year-old woman. I am a Christian. I completed a Master's degree in Theological Studies at Emory University. I am an Aspirant for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church. I am a mother of two daughters, 6 years old and 6 months old. I am a life-partner to a man, who is also a wonderful human being.
