Blue view!

It has been close to 18 months since I have visited my mom in Florida. Although the view out her condo window hasn’t changed, so much of life has. I am so grateful and thankful to be here! Nathan, PQ and I have airline tickets to visit for Thanksgiving; however, this unexpected trip is a gift from God. I know my mom and I will enjoy this time together!

I am confident that Nathan will enjoy this time as well; listening to his music as loud as he wants and having four days of eating whatever he wants!

Lord God, thank You for this opportunity! Thank You Lord for the gift of family! Thank You for the gift of community! Lord, thank You for all the unexpected ways that You work for our good and Your glory. Thank You Jesus for this reader! Lord may this reader know they have family in me. In Jesus’s Name I pray. Amen.

Blue Collar Theologian

My name is Mandy Sweigart-Quinn, I live in Lancaster, PA and I am a “Blue Collar Theologian.” I love Jesus! I am passionate about His Word (The Holy Bible)! I come alive when I can encourage others in their walk with Jesus (whether by writing or speaking). As a “Blue Collar Theologian” it is my aim to live/practice/work out my Christian hope with sincerity, authenticity and genuineness. As a “Blue Collar Theologian,” I strive to meet people right where they are (“Incarnational Theology”). I graduated in May 2019 from Capital Seminary and Graduate School with a Master's in Biblical Studies. I am a passionate, excited and enthusiastic person! I love flowers, sports and sunsets. Since January 2, 2018 I have had the privilege of being married to Nathan.

      1. We haven’t planned a vacation yet but wow thanks for commenting and sharing that blessing that if we ever visit Pennsylvania we will keep that in mind. As of now we don’t have anything planned yet

      1. Yep, it’s so much fun visiting but it goes by super fast and it’s hard to leave. But I always look forward to the next trip. I’m glad you have the flexibility to visit her as often as you do. Some people (most?) don’t have that. Safe travels back home.
