we may be young, but we're not powerless

After creeping oh so many wonderful and inspiring blogs (I'm looking at you, Suzannah, Kristen, and Heather) I decided I should begin my own public blogging journey in the hope that someone may benefit from lessons learned from my many failures without having to repeat my mistakes. I got the title for this blog from one of my all-time favorite novels: Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card. I'm not normally much for science fiction novels, but this one takes the cake. There is a quote from the book that has stuck with my since my first read of it: "We
 may
 be
 young, 
but
 we're 
not
powerless.

 We
 play
 by 
their 
rules 
long
 enough
 and 
it
 becomes
 our
 game." In my mind these are some of the truest words ever spoken. We, meaning my generation and those younger, can make a difference regardless of our age. This is clearly mentioned in the Bible (1 Timothy 4:12), or at least clearly to me.

Anyway, this blog will serve as an update to existing family and friends that we (currently, 'we' is just my husband, Jon, my cat, Marsala, and me), unfortunately, see so little of these days. This will also serve as a way to share the lessons I've learned through my young marriage, walk with Christ, and general life celebrations and inevitable failures. 
Jon and Me - Jon is 23 and I am 22. We were married June 5, 2010.
