HI! I'm Meg..
Wow! So excited to find this blog! I have been reading for a couple of days, wondering if I should post and what I would say. As I read through most of your blogs and read the introductions, I felt more and more at home. I couldn't believe how many times I would read a sentence and think, I was just thinking/feeling that the other day! So cool!
Anyway, My name is Meg and I am 26. I live in State College, PA with my husband Eric of four years. No kids...but a great dog named Buck. We have just bought a house and love it! We are originally from North Carolina, so living in PA has been a bit of a shock to us this year. We have though made great friends, have great jobs and are overall very, very blessed.
I have spent the last two years struggling, questioning, running from, and crying over my faith. I have read so many of the same books that you all have mentioned and have finally found peace in the journey that I am on. I still have a lot of questions but I am thankful to have found a place to express myself that feels safe. I have recently been dialoging with my dad regarding my faith and the new things I am thinking and praying about. My dad is very much a conservative evangelical and while our conversations have been healthy, I worry he thinks I'm going off the deep end. In fact, in talking with my brother today he said my dad is worried about me. That hurts. So again, I look forward to being a part of this conversation as I feel like it is somewhere I actually feel I fit.
