About meI was born in Philadelphia and moved to Texas while a teen. My maternal side of the family is from Poland while my father's side of the family goes back to England, Ireland, and Italy.
I grew up, married, and started a family in the United States. Our family moved internationally in 2002 and we spent seven wonderful years abroad. We lived 4 years in Caracas, Venezuela and then 3 years in Doha, Qatar. We were sent back to the United States last summer and have been living in Texas for the past year. We hope to move overseas again as soon as possible because we love learning about other cultures and being exposed to other lifestyles. I have learned some Spanish and some Arabic while overseas and would love to learn more of those languages as well as others.
I am a Christian and my heart is definitely committed to Christ, but I am also very interested in other religions in the world and I find it fascinating to see how they relate to God. I find so much to learn in the world and I love it when I am introduced to something which makes my head and my heart stop and ponder for hours upon hours.
Reading is a passion of mine and I have over 800 books in my home right now. I'm trying to downsize my library so am reading many books one more time and then passing them on to friends and family or trading them on bookmooch.
I like all types of books but I tire of "fluff" books and prefer more plots with more thought put into them.
About my libraryI've collected many books over the years--so many that they no longer fit on my bookshelves! I'm trying to read as many books as I can and then actually part with them...wow it is difficult to do!!! I'll hold on to my favorites, of course....
