On the last night of Orange 2010, I was sitting with the other bloggers up in the nosebleed seats next to one of the Orange volunteers. I asked here where she was from. She said, “I’m from Virginia, and I bug all these guys on their blogs!” All of a sudden, the rusty gears in my brain turned, I looked at her nametag and realized, “Are you Theresa Haskins? I’m Henry Zonio!”
Theresa is very gracious and could make any person feel 10 feet tall because her answer to me was, “No way! No… way!”
When I started hosting chapter-by-chapter book blog projects with different contributors and then the whole book blog tour thing, one of the people who enthusiastically raised an e-hand when I put the call out for people was Theresa. I loved her excitement at being part of these reviews and enjoyed her input into the conversations.
What I love even more about Theresa is that she is a volunteer in the children’s ministry at her church. She is so passionate, though about ministering to children that she has jumped into the blogoshpere and is adding her voice to the children’s ministry conversation. I love it!
It was so cool to meet Theresa in person and experience her infectious enthusiasm for God and families. If you have a chance jump over to Theresa’s blog and experience her excitement for ministry to children and families. I look forward to interacting with Theresa more online and hopefully more in person!
