Valerie is a 42-year-old, single, Reformed Christian lady who lives in Baltimore. She doesn't remember a time
before she knew and loved Jesus, but she does remember accepting John Calvin into her heart in March of 2000.
Valerie is a member of Christ Reformed Evangelical Church in Annapolis.
Though her career aspiration is to be a housewife, Valerie has not yet found anyone suitable who wishes to hire
her for employment in that field (or, more properly, anyone suitable has not found her), so in the meantime she
earns her daily bread working in communications -- editing, writing, print design and website management.
That's a Good Feeling
Today I will mail off a mortgage payment that will change the first digit in my principal balance. This has happened twice in the almost seven years since I bought the house, and is quite a good feeling. Since I pay extra each month, at my current pace I should have the thing paid off well short of the 15-year term of the loan. Of course if I move, I will probably have to increase my debt by a factor of five or more, increase my monthly payments by at least 60 percent, and probably not get the thing paid off 'til I'm over 70. This is all supposedly a quite sensible plan, but weeping is the most frequent result of my consideration thereof.
