Who is Aubry?
First, I follow Jesus. If you must have labels, I generally fall into the evangelical, Southern Baptist world – but I often write about how I like to push out the edges of those labels.
For instance, I totally believe that speaking in tongues is still legitimate. I don’t want prayer back in schools. I’m a closet liturgical who loves fixed-hour prayer and observes Lent and Advent and other often-ignored holy days in the Christian year. So, rather than assigning labels and assuming beliefs, I’m a big proponent of just asking people what exactly is it that they believe, and why. Because I bet you break the bounds of your labels, too.
I spend my days wrangling my three kids: Breckon (3), Kian (2), and Eden (2 months). I’m from Arkansas, but I do wear shoes. I graduated from Ouachita (WASH-uh-tah) Baptist University with degrees in Biology and Christian Studies. We’re currently preparing to go overseas in 2014.
I used to blog here, but I felt it was time for a change. You can still access all my posts from that site.
What can you expect to read here?
I love theology - I’m kind of a nerd - but it is important that it impacts our daily lives . How do we filter our cultural values, our church culture, our national values, our parenting, and ourselves through the truth of Scripture? What does it mean to be a Jesus-follower as a parent, a spouse, a friend, or as part of the Body of Christ? Can Jesus use things like potty-training to form us? I attempt to fill that gap between ivory-tower theological musings and deep-in-the-trenches, real life. God’s grace is abundant and everywhere, and I think we can find it together.
