Welcome to our Blog! 21st Century Little Women will follow the lives of four women trying to make a difference in this crazy world. This blog will include everything from recipes and crafts, to travel stories and family stories, to graduate school reflections and medical school musings.
This is us, about 20 years ago. Our mom looks the same age, but the rest of us have thankfully aged a bit. Our connection was strong then, and it is stronger now. We had the privilege of having a mom that stayed home to take care of us, and she did a pretty impeccable job. Now that we are adults and starting new chapters of our lives, she finally gets to take more (well deserved) time for herself. Oh and for the record: we all still look at a Coca-Cola that way.
Our mom read Little Women so many times that her copy was tattered and falling apart. We were then introduced to the classic, and loved it just as much. We also loved the film adaptation of the book, starring Winona Ryder. The three of us girls would discuss which one of the sisters we were most like, and try to imagine what it was like to live in that time period. Luckily, we live in the 21st Century, which is a great time to be a woman, as it allows us to pursue careers in medicine, engineering, and cartography.
We have a love for so many things between the four of us, many of which overlap. We also have one thing that has always tied us together, and that is our relationship with Christ. In the midst of living our lives on Earth, our ultimate goal is to glorify Christ through our lives, and the way we have learned to do that is by showing love, keeping each other accountable, and being a support system for each other whenever someone needs it. Our hope is that we can use this blog as a way to let our light shine for all to see, as well as keeping up with each other in our now-separate journeys. Thanks so much for following us in our journeys through life, and please feel free to leave comments on any of our posts for things you’d like to hear about from each of us!
