Welcome to my blog. I hope you feel right at home here. Let me tell you a little about myself and why I am writing this blog. My name is Christina O’Rourke. I am a wearer of many hats. I am a single mom to an amazing little boy. He is 21 months, and his name is Xander. He is the biggest blessing in my life. I share custody of him with my ex-husband.
I am a Christian. Please, don’t let that dissuade you from reading my blog. I’m not one of those shove the Bible down your throat Christians. I’m a person, with opinions, choices, an experiences. Something I say may ring with you or help you one day. I’m very active in my church and I put God first in everything. Now let me tell you right now I am a very transparent person and I fail at exactly what I just said. Sometimes I forget to put God first, or I’m being stubborn. After this I usually fall flat on my face and I have to say, God, sorry about my stubbornness. Can you show me the right way? And He does, because God has some awesome Mercy and Grace.
I’m an avid reader. I love books. Ergo, I am a Librarian. I work at a small rural Library in South Central Kentucky. Some of my favorite authors include Jojo Moyes, Liane Moriarty, Jacqueline Carey, Anne Bishop, and Terry Goodkind. My current non-fiction book is A Sliver of Light by Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd, and Josh Fattal. I also love to write, mostly fiction, but some nonfiction as well. I’ve been asked to blog by many people so here you go!
So, other than people keep asking me, why am I blogging? Well, honestly it’s to help both of us. Me, as the blogger, and you, as the reader. It is possible that you need help, or reassurance. I’ve been through things that maybe you have too, or are currently going through. Maybe you need to know that someone else was able to get back up after a divorce, or abusive dads and spouses. Maybe you need to know you can straighten your life out into something amazing and respectable and drug addiction. Maybe a song I like you will resonate with. Who knows. Maybe you just need to find your tribe. (Courtesy of Moyes right there. Read One Plus One and you’ll get it.) Speaking of, maybe I’ll review a book on here and you’ll be like, Thank God! Someone else gets it! Or maybe you’ll think I’m an idiot. Maybe you’ll think I’m a genius. Either way they are your opinions and you’re entitled to them as much as I am entitled to mine. I hope to post frequently, and that they are inspiring. I have no set structure to this blog. I may rejoice, or I may vent. I hope whatever I do you will find it relate-able. Until the next post I hope you have a wonderful day! 🙂
