There are a few things I wanted to share with you before we start this journey together.
In Rachel Held Evans book, Faith Unraveled: How a Girl Who Knew All the Answers Learned to Ask Questions, her first page is a disclaimer to her readers. The disclaimer is raw, witty, and it played a significant part in the way I read her memoir. It rang so true with me that I knew I wanted to use some of it if I ever were to write publicly.
So, with all credit given to RHE, here is my blog disclaimer:
I have a tendency to change my mind.
People tell me I’m dramatic.
I’ve never lived outside of Texas.
My parents still live in the house I grew up in.
I talk about celebrities like I know them personally.
I spend a ridiculous amount of time on Youtube.
I’ve been hurt by Christians.
As a Christian, I’ve been hurtful.
I’m judgmental of people I think are judgmental.
I actually wanted to start a fashion blog instead of this one.
I’ve had to deconstruct the foundation my faith was built on.
If I am not between a 4 or a 7 on an emotional scale, I am crying.
“I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m not exactly an impartial observer. My culture, my childhood, my gender, my prejudices, my hopes, my imagination, my virtues, and my vices – these things color my view of the world and infuse it with meaning. I’ve got baggage just like everyone else, and it’s as much a part of my faith journey as the high peaks, the low valleys, and the long, lovely stretches of road that I wish could go on forever.
I’m a lot of things, but fair and balanced I am not.
So now that you know what you’re getting into, read on.” –Rachel Held Evans
