Hello there. My name is Barbara Fisher and I am no longer a newbie on the blogosphere. The reason I started blogging is because I can be very opinionated about things and sometimes, it’s just too much for Facebook. I am married and the mother of two adult children, and the grandmother of nine.
I am a Christian. My biblical worldview drives my life. I grew up in church and after being a member of a Reformed Baptist Church, I recently returned to a church of my tradition, a baptist church comprised of mostly African Americans. Somehow, the year 2020 made me yearn for returning to where there is a common understanding of our journey. My faith, however remains the same. I am convinced that God saved me by his grace. Check out my post: What I Believe for more about my beliefs.
I have also been very interested in politics the last few years. I am not a crowd follower. I’m inquisitive by nature, so I don’t believe everything I see on the internet or TV. I love to dig deeper, researching to draw my own conclusions. I recently cut my ties with my political party and opted to vote as an Independent; although I have been a Conservative Democrat my entire adult life. You can check out my rationale.
I was able to retire from state government service after 30+ years, and that has afforded me this opportunity to not overwhelm Facebook with my thoughts. I hope you find my blog – thought provoking, engaging, and interesting. Please let me know what you think. This is the one venue where your feedback is the juice craved to keep going and going.
