Introducing Me

My name here is Kess. 

I'm 22 and I've been a Christian since the age of 7, but don't think my faith really matured until recent years when I began to realise the difference between believing in God and actually leading a relationship with him. I love God and the revelation of all that he can do for me has totally transformed my life. If you want to know more, don't hesitate to contact me. 

I am blessed to have met the man I hope to spend the rest of my life with, my best friend and soul mate, known here as Spud. We have been together for three and a half years and plan to marry in summer 2012. 

Last year I flew the nest, settling 300 miles away from my parents and two younger brothers aged sixteen and nineteen, but 300 miles closer to Spud. Although I miss my family, for the most part I love living here and Spud's county really, truly feels like home. 

Since leaving home, I've been working in supported living for adults with learning disabilities. I started as a support worker but was promoted to a senior support worker within 6 weeks as the opportunity was there and I took it. I haven't been particularly happy in my job, and in fact I've just clawed my way out of a really bad patch that lasted a few months. There were times where I didn't think I'd make it, but I did and I know I'm stronger for it. 

When I'm not working or spending time with Spud, I love nothing more than curling up in a quiet corner with a good book. I also love to write and dream of someday publishing a best selling novel, but sadly writing is something I've not had much time for since starting work. I haven't had time for running either, although I really enjoy it, and entered my local half-marathon last May. I also love going to church and worshipping with my brothers and sisters in Christ. I am very creative and love to knit and sew when I'm inspired. I have a real passion for beautiful views, and love walking. 

I often give people the impression that I am quiet and shy, but I do love to meet new people, and these days it doesn't take me long to come out of my shell. I know I am a very loved person, and I am humbled by the kindness people show me everyday. 

This blog is probably best described as my journey into womanhood. I am not writing to gain hundreds of followers, but I am grateful for any friends I pick up along the way. Thank you for visiting. I hope you decide to stay.
