meet-n-greet, lost but not forgotten edition

I may be losing my mind, unaware of day or time or what I'm supposed to be doing (hence the crazy late post--sorry!), but we do NOT want to lose these two new friends! Be sure to stop by, say hello, and offer a warm RGBP welcome to our newest members!

Bookgirl "used to teach high school English. Then I quit my job, sold my condo, moved 2000 miles away, and started working on a graduate degree. Simultaneously, I moved from the Evangelical world to slowly finding a place in the mainline denominations. Then I met CG, got married, moved 2000 miles back home, and kept working on my Ph.D at my alma mater. Now we have 2 children and I’ve finished school, but seem set to be Dr. Mom for awhile. Meanwhile, I’ve found myself more and more drawn in to lay ministry in our local Presbyterian church where I am an elder and currently sitting on Session (council)."

Mary van Balen met our very own Jules up at Collegeville last month and was encouraged to join--thanks for the RevGal evangelism, Jules! Mary is a long time blogger who just decided it was time to join--and we're glad to have her! At her blog you can find her "reflecting on the spiritual pilgrimage through everyday life."

Welcome, friends--we're glad you're here!

Don't forget you can also join in conversation over at our facebook group, you can always jump right into the comments on any post here, and we're always looking for Ask The Matriarch questions--lots of ways to be involved in our community!

  1. Thanks for the introduction. That was fast!

    Not sure who met Jules at the conference, but it wasn't me (I would have liked to, though--love her blog).

    1. Wendy, I too am a great fan of Madeleine L'Engle. I had the opportunity to attend a writing workshop/retreat she conducted in NY many years ago. She has been an inspiration to me since my years as an elementary teacher. Have you read her book, Walking on Water?

      I look forward to checking in on your blog!

    2. Mary, I think I've read very nearly everything by L'Engle. I, too, had the great privilege of attending a writers' retreat with her. One of the highlights of my life. I look forward to checking out your blog.

  4. Hello Revgalblogpals! Thank you for including me in your circle. I look forward to visiting many of your blogs and following the discussions. I met Jules in Collegeville and learned about Revgals. My good fortune. I hope some of you will enjoy my posts.

  5. I notice that when someone links to my blog using the link at the right, they are directed to a text only version. Do I need to do something at my end to correct this? Photos and other links that appear on my blog/webpage are not available to those who use the link provided at the right side of your page. Thanks, Mary

  6. Hi, Mary. Teri and I have been trying to solve that problem. We used the exact same link in the blog post above that we used in adding you to the blog roll, but Blogger is converting it to what you see in the sidebar. (In fact we've both added and deleted you numerous times, hoping it was a temporary glitch.) We have not had this experience before. Do you have technical support for your website? Perhaps you could ask there if they have any suggestions. I'll send this to you via email as well.
