Who is Aubry?
Welcome! I’m Aubry, and I’m really glad and a little humbled that you’re here. I’m a rural Arkansas transplant living in urban Dallas (so basically: I wear shoes now). I graduated from Ouachita (WASH-uh-tah) Baptist University with degrees in Biology and Christian Studies. I’m a freelance writer (see my Elsewhere page for more).
I’m married to Brady, and I spend my days wrangling my three kids: Breckon (4), Kian (3), and Eden (1). We’ve taken our traveling circus all over this country in pursuit of jobs, seminary, and ministry, and now we’re preparing to go overseas in 2014.
I’m a follower of Jesus, and I’m passionate about the Church moving past complacency and doctrinal in-fighting and uniting for the Mission of God in this world. I want us to flee the stale replicas of Christianity and run full-force into a dynamic, with-God life.
I grew up in the Southern Baptist denomination, but always felt like a closet liturgical. I think spiritual disciplines are vital but overlooked, I celebrate Advent and Lent, and I find freedom and grounding in rituals. My mentors have been good books, and I often review them here so you can benefit from them, too.
I’m honored that you’re here, and hope you’ll join in the conversation as we figure this Jesus-life out. God’s grace is abundant and everywhere, and I think we can find it together.
