It Wonders Me

“God’s splendor is a tale that is told.” Ps‬ ‭19:1

The fact that this site exists is a testament to a) the heart-transforming power of Jesus and b) God’s ability to pester you into submission.

The title comes from a Pennsylvania Dutch expression to reference something odd, curious, or interesting. An archaic form of, “It makes me wonder,” or “I stand in awe,” or , if you’re Southern, “How ’bout that.” It’s best said while scratching beneath your straw hat and staring into the middle distance in a contemplative fashion.

I picked it because it accurately sums up how I feel about God most of the time.

He wonders me.

I’m a world-traveling, oddly-educated, thirty-something, INFJ, Enneagram Type 1 writer who went looking for God and found Him.

I currently live in Hamilton, Ontario with my Robert Downey, Jr. lookalike husband and wildchild daughter. Between nerd activities like playing Dungeons & Dragons or having revelations based on Lord of the Rings, I enthusiastically destroy the kitchen and try to figure out what it’s all about, really, when you really get down to it.
