I thought I’d post a little bio for those of you who don’t know me. For those of you who do know me, you can just skip this page. Or if you’re so inclined, add a fun anecdote in the comments about how we know each other.
I’m Keri, wife of 10 years to Mike; stay at home supermomma to three handsome boys, Lukas, Kaleb, and Korbin; and (sometimes) trainer to my lovable weiner pups Pikake and Ikaika. I’ve lived quite a nomadic lifestyle, planting roots in North Carolina, Hawaii, Seattle, Louisiana, the Netherlands and New Mexico. A few years ago, Mike and I finally settled down and made our home in Federal Way, WA, a suburb of Seattle.
The course of events in a typical week for me includes chauffeuring my boys, attending a Seattle Sounders game with the hubby, checking out what’s new and cute at Target, or chatting with friends over copious amounts of caffeinated beverages and chocolate. At the end of the week, you’ll find me hanging out at my local church where I’ve connected with so many amazing people who have genuinely encouraged and challenged me in my journey of faith. If I had more time in the day, I’d spend it doing yoga, walking my dogs on the beach, and getting back to scrapbooking, photography, traveling, and trying new recipes. As you can tell by the focus of this blog, I also love to read, watch movies, and play one song from a new album so many times that it makes my hubby scream. I’m a little obsessive that way. :) I have a Master’s degree in Counseling Psychology which helps me to (over)analyze anything and everything that crosses my path.
While I don’t consider myself an expert in any sense in theological matters, I have had the blessing of being raised in a Christian home. My parents taught me by word and deed what it means to be a true Christian, and provided many experiences and community to nurture my faith. But, I’m still learning what it means to live out that faith authentically and practically. You get to hear all about those lessons here on Pop Parables.
Enough about me! Introduce yourself in the comments. I love meeting new people!
