Welcome to Life Between Lines!
Whenever I’m inclined to join a conversation, I’m most likely to lead with, “You know, I read somewhere that…” or “That sounds like something I read in a book once…”. Connecting the fascinating books I’ve read with my real life is one of my favourite things! Connecting with PEOPLE who have read fascinating books and who connect them to THEIR lives may just be the most wonderful thing in the world to me!
But first, a little bit of an introduction:
I’m Michelle! I’m married to the best guy in the world and I stay at home with our four kiddos. I love studying theology, date nights with my husband, and deep conversations with good people (preferably over food and drink!).
I have always loved to read. It would be easier for me to tell you which genre I DON’T like, and that is contemporary, family-drama-centric fiction (i.e. “Three grown siblings reunite at the family cottage for their father’s funeral, after not seeing one another for a decade…” etc. But, I digress!) On the other hand, I am wildly enthusiastic about pretty much any other kind of book: mystery, sci-fi/fantasy, history, romance, non-fiction, self-help… and any combination of the these. (Now, if one of those three siblings at their father’s funeral happened to be a time-traveling cyborg with a penchant for solving cozy murder mysteries, well then… we’d have a story!)
I have a tendency to over-analyze and philosophize things that I see or read in an attempt to enrich my world with new ideas and meanings. I am a purpose-driven individual – I would rather take a short detour on my way from point A to B, if it means that I will find a deeper meaning behind what I’m doing on the way.
I love people who are willing jump right in with me: reading and then living between lines.
So happy to have you along!
