Trying 2 be a good Christian..

Being raised with a female minister in the family, the kind that spoke in tongues, made life and faith interesting. As I’ve gotten older I’ve often felt this pull or calling, I’m still not sure what to do with it, but I’ve decided to start reading the bible. I was actually encouraged by seeing all these great pins on Pinterest (did I mention I’m addicted) of Bible Journaling! It’s awesome, combines faith, art, glitter, markers, scrapbooking, paint, stamps… Sorry got carried away.  I then found this awesome group, Women Living Well and the Good Morning Girls, great plan, easy to follow on reading the bible, best part, you can jump in anytime and they have great free resources, yeah I know, too cool right?

Life Begins…..

Welcome to my blog, According 2 Tessie, I’ve wanted to do this for some time, but it just didn’t feel right, it took many thoughts and ideas to figure out what I wanted to do with a blog.  It wasn’t until my loving other half started calling me “Tessie” and I realized that I live life in my own way, I found myself, or should I say, I found “Tessie”.  I love DIY, from simple projects to furniture, I love scrapbooking, painting, food (I’ll try anything once), antiques, old houses, wine, and sour patch watermelons, plus I’m addicted to Pinterest🙂  And did I mention I’m trying to be a good Christian?  It’s interesting, so I hope you continue on this journey with me, as we both learn about life, according 2 Tessie……
