Let Me Introduce Myself

Hi! My name is Estelle.
I have frequently been told that I need to blog some of my thoughts, so I thought this would be a good start for me. This is a new year with new expectations as well as new hopes and dreams.

I feel I must start off by saying that I will not set out to offend anyone; however, I am intensely aware that some of what I believe or think happens to be offensive. IF you are reading my blog and you find yourself generally offended, I ask that you please do us both a favor and practice your right to leave the rest of us in peace. I have little to no patience for political correctness. More on that another time.

I am a Christian woman who lives in Texas. I happen to hold to CLASSICAL Republican ideals. In general, the Republicans of the last couple of decades have left too much to be desired and have basically abandoned the classic Republican ideology. More on that another time.

How about some more fun things about me? I am happily married to a hubby of 15 years. We have two wonderful sons, ages 12 and 7. I most likely will address them as T12 and J7, with their initials representing their names and numbers representing their ages. Obviously, lots more on them later! ;)

I enjoy cooking. My absolute favorite celebrity cook is Rachael Ray. Love that dear girl! She and I basically share the same philosophy about food. We both can usually discern flavors and reproduce them in the home setting. I believe that if she and I were ever to meet, we'd have ourselves a FANTASTIC time. :) May make a spot for Estellized recipes. ;)

I enjoy reading, though basically I spend more time reading to my boys than to myself. About the only thing I truly read by myself is the Bible, and I admit that I don't even read THAT well. :{
I love to read Christian-themed suspense thrillers and mysteries. In my opinion, Frank Peretti is a brilliant story-teller! There are other authors I enjoy, but I'll talk about them another time.

Speaking of Christian-themed books, when I have time, I enjoy certain television ministries. I know, I know...according to the world's way of looking at them, they are a bunch of self-serving crooks. There are some that fit the description, but I don't believe all of them fit that bill. More on that another time.

I've got more on my mind that I will share with you. Right now, this is a good start. I pray that each of you experiences the best new year and new decade ever, full of prosperity and other words, I pray you experience true peace this year.



  1. Great first blog post, Estelle! I agree...they're not all bad. I went to college at Liberty, home of Jerry Falwell. He was a good man, no doubt about it.

  2. Will (if/when I remember) put you on the sidebar of my blog. :)

    Woohoo... I love to blog.
