Another Introduction

7 Mar

So how does one begin an intro blog post? I think I need a quick tutorial, because there is no way this is the right way to do it – here goes. My name is Amy. I am a 27 year old child of God, daughter, sister, friend, – excited to say- member of the Grace Chapel family, major Toronto Maple Leafs fan, and full time social worker. I think that pretty much sums it up.

I checked my email a few weeks ago, and I was so pumped to see an email from my good friend Maja titled, “A proposition”. As I read it I became even more excited to accept her proposal to team up with three women I respect and admire a great deal. The idea was to join Maja’s existing blog and take turns writing about topics that are important to us. I have been following This Passing Life since it began, and it has been such a blessing to me over the years; so there was no way I was going to turn down the opportunity to contribute to this blog by sharing some fun and challenging topics along with my friends.

My job allows me the privilege and opportunity to speak to various people from different walks of life, different life stages, different problems, perspectives, ideas, and worries. I love being able to have a job that provides support to people who need it, and are willing to engage in conversation, one hour at a time with a complete stranger. In the process of supporting, I end up learning so much about myself, relational interactions, families, societal expectations, social problems, and the list goes on. I often find myself working to figure out what the Bible has to say about these lessons that arise from my daily conversations. As I share some of my thoughts and readings, I promise to do my best not to relate every post to the Leafs, but quite frankly, I do believe that most life lessons can be directly linked to the Leafs’ journey over the years. So, while our home team works hard and presses on towards the playoffs, I will try to do the same in my contributions to this blog. I am excited to learn more and grow as I follow along with the other posts and contribute my own, and I hope the same for anyone else who may be following along with This Passing Life.
