JTB is a mother, a sister, a love child, a spouse, a friend, a feminist and a G.R.I.T.S. (Girl Raised in the South), a writer, an eternal student and doctor of philosophy, a theologian-at-large, a c'sofC'er, a believer and a doubter, a resident alien, a cyborg, and an undomesticated goddess.
My husband is Rector at Grace Church in Newark; my 6-year-old daughter will someday either be President, an astronaut, a ballerina, or an engineer, but definitely a mommy; my 18-month-old is in love with Elmo. Our family also includes a toothless kitty cat named for the Babylonian goddess of chaos.
I used to be athletic and perhaps one day will be again. I like to knit and re-read books from my childhood. I can call you crazy in Chinese. Oh, and I'm probably a diagnosable heretic--an occupational hazard. You can see for yourself at rude sermons. I'm also a heretic-for-hire, so check out my CV and my LinkedIn profile.
- "go upright and vital and speak the rude truth in all ways"
In the spirit of the above quote from Emerson, "rude truth" is JTB's little personal blog: a miscellany of unpolished ruminations on everything from cyborgs to potty training.
"rude truth" is also pleased to be hosting an ongoing series featuring a number of guest bloggers, whose contributions are archived on the page "Women in the Churches of Christ: Voices and Narratives."
