I am a homeschooled girl who has a great passion for history, writing, good food, and of course, books.
I was born in Tennessee, but moved to Indiana when I was 3. People have always commented about my accent, mostly just trying to figure out where on earth it comes from. I just shrug my shoulders, and explain that I was born in the in Tennessee (home town of my Daddy, and yes, he still sounds like the rest the Mahoneys) my mom was born and raised in Texas, and I practically grew up in Indiana. Finally, somebody had the sense of saying,” Everybody has an accent.” I don’t remember her name, but I tip my hat to her.
I am a country girl, my whole childhood being that of milking dairy goats, and feeding almost every kind of farm bird that God made. As I once heard an author say:
“You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl.”
I plan to stay as long as I can.
My grate-grandmother came to the U.S when she was five from Ireland. I have Irish blood and I am very proud of that fact. Someday I dream to go to Ireland, and while I’m at it, I might as well explore Scotland and England too, maybe tour some other nations of Europe.
Long walks are my delight, wholesome food my nourishment, authentic music my pleasure, curling up with an inspiring novel my relaxation, I like my hot tea black. I hold a fascination with words, and am always grabbing random quotes and pinning them places. I love sunrises and sunsets. My favorite seasons are fall and winter. I love how the leaves shine and the snow sparkles. The stars shining in the darkness gives me hope that no matter how dark and grim the world is, the Light of Jesus Christ still shines bright.
As of now I am taking a journey through learning disabilities, and learning how to trust God through it all. My dream when I grow up is be a stay-at-home mom with a house full of kids, a writer, and a health professorial of some kind. I am a sinner in desperate need of God’s grace, a beautiful mess who often doubts, but is hanging on with dear life to the promises of God. Christ is my salvation, to Him be glory forever and ever and ever amen.
