  • Hi Everyone, my name is Ken, and I’ve been lurking around the Rabbit Room for quite awhile so I’m glad there’s a forum here to connect with.  The new site is great…a real treasure trove of inspiration.  I’ve collected all of the Hutchmoot audio sessions and return to them often when I need a kick of creative inspiration.

    I was born & raised in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, and my childhood was shaped and warped by cartoons, books, puppets and animatronic rock bands.  I now live near Vancouver Canada with my wife and two kids (ages 6 and 9). I’ve been an animator and animation instructor for 20 years and now branching off into writing and illustrating children’s books. Some of my poems and drawings have been posted at Story Warren.

    For several years I also wrote movie reviews for Hollywood Jesus. These days I occasionally write about film, music, books and faith on my own website. http://www.priebelieving.com/

    Thanks, glad to be here.

    Um, I jumped right into the forums without making any introductions. I’m here now!

    As one who rarely participates in comment threads and has minimal social media, I had no idea there was a Rabbit Room community beyond the authors and musicians themselves. (Sad, I know.) Needless to say, I haven’t been to a Hutchmoot, but now I hope one is in store at some point. I have, however, been absorbing most Rabbit Room writings for about a year, as well as listening to most of the musicians as well (many of whom I loved before I knew this site existed).

    I love connections and seeing how everything fits together. That could sum up who I am. My interests change so often that it’s not worth listing them here, so I’ll leave it at that.

    I’m thrilled to be here now and love it already. Thanks, everyone.

    @kenpriebe – I feel like I know you from somewhere…. Are you an old-school VOL fan, maybe?

    I’m glad you’re here either way!

    @barberjo what is “VOL” exactly? enlighten (or remind) me….I’ve seen your name as well.  In the Looking Closer Specialists group, I do believe.  😉

    @kenpriebe – that’s it! The Overstreet connection (which is like the Rainbow Connection, but it only appears above roads).

    VOL stands for Vigilantes of Love – my all-time favorite rock and roll band.

    Hi, I’m Claire, and I’m a college student from central Ohio. I came to the Rabbit Room through Jason Gray’s music and have been reading several posts on this great website every since. I’m glad that there is a forum for the Rabbit Room—I looked through it a few times before registering and liked the conversations that were happening. I am also always seeking new movies and books, and have found this community to be a good place for that! It’s nice to meet all of you!

    Hi, I’m Eric, and I don’t know where else to ask this question. Here goes. I must be a buffoon because I received several of your RR friend requests, but, since I wasn’t sure if I needed to take further action, I took no action, but now I no longer see you as friends in my account profile/whatever it’s called. Can someone coach me? Am I supposed to “confirm” you as a friend (as is done with Facebook)? Or does it happen automatically? Or am I supposed to leave you a trail of M&Ms? Help, please? Thank you.

    @ericpeters – if you go to your notifications at the top left corner, you will see that there is likely a red number under your picture. Click on that, then on the next page, go to your notifications on the left hand side. There you will see replies from others and all of your friend requests. You can accept them there. Hope that helps. 🙂

    So, true to form, I think I’ve posted in like three other threads now before even bothering to find the intro thread.  So…uh… hey everyone.

    As my username indicates, my name is Susan.  I know a small handful of you from either “real life” or Hutchmoot (which I attended quietly – due to losing my voice, not inherent quiet-ness – in 2012), but otherwise I haven’t done much Facebook group posting or Rabbit Room commenting, so I suppose I am mostly new.

    I am a pediatric oncologist in Columbus, OH, where I’ve lived for 3 years after a 15 year tour of the South during which I lived in NC (college and med school), Birmingham, AL (residency), and Nashville (fellowship).  I live with my 5 month old puppy, named Ziza, who is pretty much the best and those who follow me on Instagram are probably sick of seeing her 😉

    I’ve been aware of the artists and authors involved in the Rabbit Room for a long time (I haven’t missed BtLoG – in SOME city – since my first trip to the Ryman in 2005), but became cognizant of the actual Rabbit Room community primarily during my time in Nashville, which was a bizarre era of attending church with musicians who had provided much of the soundtrack for my previous 15 years but also the first time I had ever really found “my people” in my actual church.  Moving away was hard and I fought God hard on it, but the Nashville door was slammed pretty tight and I am happy to say that it turns out my people are here in Columbus, too.

    My favorite author is Madeleine L’Engle, and in the spirit of full disclosure and transparency, I read neither Lewis nor Tolkein until adulthood.  My favorite singer/songwriter is Sandra McCracken, and beyond that I love too many artists to name them all.  I’m mainly a lover of stories in all forms, though lately most of that seems to come through watching way too much TV.

    I’m not sure how active I’ll be here, but let’s be honest, as long as people are talking about Hamilton, I’ll keep coming back 😉

    Hello from (hot) Central Texas. I’m Stacy Aannestad, and I just discovered this site. It looks like it’s exactly up my alley. I’m married, have one son who is currently in North Dakota working on his MA in Linguistics at the Summer Institute of Linguistics/UND. Sometimes I fancy myself a writer, other times I’m not quite sure who I am, but there’s always an itch to be creative somehow. I love water (especially oceans), New Zealand, all kinds of music, reading fiction, and TEA (as in the drink, all caps because, well, tea). Oh, and board games. (Not the Monopoly kind, but the 7 Wonders kind.) Looking forward to finding my way around here and making new friends.

    Hello. I come to the Rabbit Room by way of Andrew Peterson’s music. I first saw Andrew in concert in 2000. I was a thirteen year old with an empty wallet. After the show, my sister was kind enough to lend me enough money to buy a copy of Carried Along. It’s still one of my favorite albums.

    I am a recent seminary grad living in the Raleigh, NC area. Down the road, I hope to engage more fully in pastoral ministry. My wife is a doctoral student at N.C. State (Go Pack!; although, in truth I am a Blue Devil and she is a Tar Heel. Ah, a house divided).

    I have visited the Rabbit Room regularly over the last several years, but have not participated in the community until now. I enjoy many of the same songwriters and authors discussed on the site, so I thought it time to join the discussion. I look forward to getting to know the community better.

    @susan @stacyaa @mrade – welcome! We’re so glad you’re hangin’ around.

    So, i meant to only tap into the online forums occasionally because i’m trying to be more disciplined about using my internet browsing time for writing instead, but y’all were so interesting, i thought i’d introduce myself….

    i’m currently living in the States – Nashville, specifically – which would make this the fourth country / continent i’ve lived in / on so far. Oddly enough, all of these places till now have something to do with the South, so i’ve been told that makes me a global Southerner. I actually lived in Oxford for a couple of years (south of England; it still counts as a ‘south’) so it’s been great reading Andrew’s posts about The Bird and the Baby 😛 Having said that, I come to this place by the very gracious connection of Mako Fujimura and @jonathanrogers – so thank you.

    i’m still working out what i do/ want to be doing, but what i’ve worked out so far is that: part of my vocational calling appears to be poetry. another segment appears to be support of and advocate for the arts and artists. still figuring out the rest.

    i used to be an Extravert, but then i married my Introvert husband, so i now tell everyone that i’m a repressed Introvert. if anyone’s into the Enneagram, i’m a spot-on 7 (and if you ARE into the Enneagram, please let me know :D). i’m also a TCK and a MK or a PK. And, evidently, a hedgehog.

    if anyone’s looking for a writing sprints partner in Nashville, lmk 🙂 I try to write at least 15 minutes a day, and more on weekends, so I’m always looking for new coffee shop buddies. Booyah.

    I try to write at least 15 minutes a day, and more on weekends, so I’m always looking for new coffee shop buddies.

    This is actually something i’ve been thinking about lately, thanks to Mr. Jay Myers and his #15minartchallenge on Instagram. He does this with sketching and credits it with a great deal of improvement in his craft over the years. i’ve been thinking of writing as an all-day (or at least multiple-hour) event, and i wonder if i’d get further if i’d adopt your method. Seems it would be conducive to both discipline and grace simultaneously, not to mention actual progress.

    ps. Welcome to the forums. 🙂 i like you.

    @mrs-hittle thanks for the welcome, it’s been a treat 🙂 So i just tagged you in an article on work and 15 minutes that i found really helpful as i started writing more intentionally every day. It’s a great, great, great read and one that I’ve passed on to many friends in academia who’ve also found it of benefit.

    suffice it to say, that 15 minutes has been a wonderful way to trick my fear that i’ll survive the agony of writing, and that once i get started, it’s easier to continue…
