About Me

I am a homeschooled teenager who is about to graduate this year! I have been homeschooled all my life and am very thankful that I have. I am the 6th of 10 kids and am an aunt of soon to be 8 nieces and nephews. Three of my siblings are married and one is engaged to be married at the end of May. I am a born again believer of Jesus Christ and have been since I was 13 years old. God has been revealing Himself to me more and more and I am excited to truly know Him!

I love acting and have been acting since I was 7 years ago. When I graduate I will probably be moving to Texas and live with my grandma while I attend a community college. I will be majoring in Theatre so I am very excited about that. I love anything Jane Austen, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Dickens and C.S. Lewis. I read lots of classics books and love watching any period dramas. Pride and Prejudice is my favorite JA book, Little Dorrit, Bleak House and A Tale of Two Cities are my favorite Charles Dickens books (Although I have yet to read LD, and BH :) I love Les Miserables, anything Shakespeare and just anything that is a classic book.

I love reading and watching fantasy as well as period dramas. LOTR, Star Wars, The Chronicles of Narnia are some of my favorites. I also LOVE  Disney. I don't care that I am almost 18, I will always love Disney. I watch all the movies, sing all the songs and go around quoting the movies. :)

I am happily single and plan on staying that way. Unless God REALLY wants me to get married. I mean, who am I to say no to the God who made the world and everything in it?

I am obsessed with broadway musicals, collecting books, and listening/collecting soundtracks! I do not like school but my favorite subject is British Literature and Writing :)

The Bible
Pride and Prejudice
The Scarlet Pimpernel

  1. Hi Lydia,
    I'm always so happy to *see* of another home-schooled girl in a big Christian family, so I had to comment. You know... sometimes you just *have* to. At least, that's how I am, heehee.
    I too, LOVE Pride and Prejudice 1995. Shelves in the Closet... happy thought indeed! It's so cool you named your blog after it! I'm sure you're nothing like Mr Collins, though.
    I love your name! 'Lydia' has always been one of my favourite names.
    Do all your siblings have Bible names? I am the second of nine children, and we all have Bible names.
