About Robin Kramer
To be fair, there are many other things I habitually do. I eat sandwiches. I get wet when I'm rained on. I find myself consumed with sundry OCD-triggering tasks, like cleaning my house even though we still live in it. Surprisingly, none of these actions rose to the surface as potential blog titles.
But the habitual act of writing? Yes, that sticks. God wired me to write, and through my writing, I feel his pleasure.
My three young daughters keep my life full, my kitchen floor sticky, and my husband, Joel, highly outnumbered. I teach college public speaking and writing, take immense pleasure in a well-organized closet, and burst into spontaneous dance moves on occasion for no apparent reason. Whether it's fragments of thought formed into a cohesive narrative, or a DIY project salvaged from repurposed materials, I revel in pulling things together. My relationship with running resembles an adolescent romance: on-again, off-again inconsistency and periodic swells of great affection. I brake for garage sales, love good books, and periodically attempt to give up sweet tea. (I haven't entirely succeeded yet.)
My most defining characteristic -- the one which most deeply influences my actions, speech, and overarching life outlook -- is that I am a follower of Christ. I love God. He loved me first. I get the better end of this deal, by far.
I appreciate order, structure, and time for reflection, which are three desires in diametric opposition with the reality of parenthood. This blog is my space to explore the average moments that make up the bulk of life, parenting, work, and daily interactions -- and to find humor and faith within them.
