“… soulful posts that do inspire me to be a better mom. To dig a little deeper and try a little harder.” Thanks so much for the encouragement that sending words out in this crazy blog-o-sphere has inspired you! Kristen does an amazing job of blogging through challenges of getting out of debt and her blog is well worth a good look.

7  Things about Me

1. Participating in “about me” things makes me very uncomfortable. I never play when someone sends a FB survey thing!

2. I love my family up one side and down the other. I am amazed at the wonder of this journey of watching my kids become young adults. They are a wonder of what God can do with all our efforts, prayers, hopes, tears, mistakes, and sins as parents.


3. I have recently been bitten by the photography bug and I am discovering crazy joy at taking pictures of the randomest things and turning them into art.


My kids are pretty sure I’m crazy…

4. Ummmm…what else? Every now and then I get a wild hair and write on the funny (or weird) side. I love to do funny skits when God gives them to me. They only come for a specific audience and event, and it’s been a long time since I’ve gotten one. I miss that zany part of me. She’ll be back out at some time, I’m sure. Wan’t to see?

It’s totally a God thing that I CANNOT come up with on my own–no matter how hard I try.

5. I love Love LOVE aqua. It’s in my DNA and I’m a 3rd generation aqua-girl. So much fun that this color is the rage.  I’m stocking up and will be partying with this color long after it has gone out of style…again.

Confession: I want to paint my office the color we used in the bathroom but I’m afraid it might be taking a good thing a little too far.

Bathroom Remodel in My Favorite Color

6. When I’m not writing or speaking, I teach water fitness–which is a blast.

I am also working on getting my first book published, which has been a LONG process. Say a prayer for it’s under review at a publisher’s right now.

7. I am giving God my attention and the thing He is working most in my life is deeper truth about taking off the flesh and putting on the Spirit, letting Christ express Himself through me. This flesh-life of getting our needs met and coping with life independent of Christ constantly dogs at my heels.

  2. That was so fun to read! I get your emails and read posts often so I loved getting to know a few more thing a about you! And your goal of God working through you in His Spirit, you know, the taking off the flesh thing: it’s happening here!

    • Ginger Harrington

      So glad you enjoyed getting to know a little more about me–makes it worth being uncomfortable. I really enjoy your wonderful blog as well! Thanks for commenting today:)

  3. Awe, thank you friend! You are a blessing and I am so grateful God brought you into my life.

  4. I had to come back and tell you how your skit made me laugh. You are a funny gal, and have a beautiful voice! I love the color of your bathroom. I can see an office with that color.

    • Ginger Harrington

      So glad to send a smile and a laugh your way! I love the bathroom color, and am just trying to work up the painting inspiration to try the office. The last time I painted the office, it took three tries, and the last color was almost the same as the first. I’m not gifted with color!

  5. What a community of bloggers to be included! You have so much of value to share. I just love reading along and am so glad God had us meet up. I will do my best to participate as long as these babies give me the time. 😉 So fun to learn more about you.

    • Ginger Harrington

      I hope you’re getting settled in your new home. Can’t imagine a cross country move with infant twins in the mix! I hope you’ll have fun participating if time permits!
