We had a friend, years ago in seminary, who was a beauty. Long, wavy black hair, tall and assured. She was a striking figure and dressed well. She told people that she was a pastor, long before she was ever ordained, and certainly before she had graduated. I always thought it took some nerve on her part, declaring what wasn't even yet true, and often wondered if she stated it just for the effect. She hardly looked the part. But, she was clear about her purpose and vision, so she declared it. It's who she was. She knew it. It wasn't' so much bold, assured and courageous, just clear and succinct. She kept the goal in front of her; eyes on the prize. Which is just good, solid Christian living.
With that being said, I'd like to introduce myself,
"Hello, my name is Lisa. I am a writer. Prepare to read."
