Today I welcome a kindred spirit, an inspiration, a sparky personality, and future authoress.
I met Casey through ACFW and found her to be a rich source of Christlike friendship. When I asked Casey to share the "real" her with you, she said:
I’m a writer. Words make up my world into a brighter, cheerier place (though sometimes when my characters misbehave, it can become a darker, more dangerous existence. ;-)
I have a list of words that describe me. Words that make up who I am to my friends, my family and to myself.
General all-around farm girl.
I wear a lot of hats. I use a lot of words. But you know the most important ones to me? The words that represent those closest in my lives. Daughter. Sister. Child of the King.
Sure, being an aspiring author is great. Donning the scrubs is a challenge. And making the jewelry is just plain fun, but they don’t represent me.
Some people would say it’s my chair-dancing personality sneaking out and I’m just a fun-lovin’ gal. (That’s what my ACFW friends would say.)
My Alley Cats would just call me cheeky and sassy (when they are having a friendly, be-nice-to-Casey) day.
My family would tell you I’m helpful and a great daughter (might as well aim for the best, right??) but can be a might disagreeable at times.
But what I do I really want to be labeled for? What words do I want people to think of when they see me?
Those are the words I want remembered of me and spoken of when my name is said. I want my heart to be so synonymous with Christ’s that nothing can separate one from the other.
If you had three words you had to pick, which ones would you choose and hope people would say of you? I hope you’ll share in the comments, I’d love to get to know you!
Some day you will hold one of Casey Herringshaw's books in your hand. You'll stay up late trying to finish a chapter then tell all your friends the next day. For now, please share a word of encouragement for Casey.
