Hi, I'm Cristina!

I'm a Christian college student pursuing multiple endeavors while keeping up a marriage and home. After graduating in 2011 with a degree in Psychology and the intent of becoming a Christian counselor, I went back to complete my Music degree. Playing the violin is what I do most of the time, but I also volunteer for Believers Against Abuse and Neglect of Kids (BAANK) and head up my church's children's ministry. I have a busy life, and I love it!

My blog oscillates between all homemakey and super nerdy. I wear aprons and I carry multiple books in my purse at a time. I eat my from-scratch dinners excitedly in front of episodes of Star Trek. I could potentially study the score of Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony, have an animated discussion with a friend about our country's failing space program, and bake a cheesecake in the same day. Because why not be an intelligent Christian wife who is into real science? Why not be a woman who is into theology, philosophy, and politics? Why not be a conservative woman who admits there is a problem with math and science being for boys? And why not also be all homemakey too, as if the two worlds were somehow mutually exclusive?

I love learning, and I'm learning love. I'm learning how what Jesus did for me should permeate every facet of my daily existence. I'm learning how to walk like he did, with the Spirit of God as my guide and teacher. I'm learning how to clothe myself with strength and dignity (Proverbs 31:25) and also with compassion and humility (Colossians 3:12). I'm a disciple of Jesus, compelled to follow the Great Commission to share Christ's love with the world. I'm on a journey. Won't you walk with me?
