For those of you who donâ€™t know me [or for those of you who do?], my name is Meredith Kane. Iâ€™m a marketing intern with RELEVANT this summa, and Iâ€™m lovinâ€™ it. [Does McDonaldâ€™s own that phrase?] When Iâ€™m not kickinâ€™ it down here in the Sunshine State, I spend my days rockinâ€™ the suburbs of the greater Des Moines area. While Iowa may be home, I think my heart really resides in middle Tennessee.
Iâ€™m a student at Belmont University in Nashville, otherwise known as Music City, USA. Iâ€™ll be a senior this fall, and hopefully earn my degree by next May. No, scratch that. I will graduate in the spring, because I canâ€™t afford not to. Ha! Iâ€™m a public relations major, with a minor in journalism. [I swear my professional writing style is much more sophisticated than this note would suggest. Iâ€™m just taking creative liberty with this blog and hoping youâ€™ll track with me!
My Facebook profile would inform you that Iâ€™m a huge fan of dancing, sweet tea, laughter, hammocks, accents, YouTube, and bumper stickers. My favorite Canadian province is Ontario, and I donâ€™t eat food with a face. I enjoy crafting paper chains to count down to important events, and it is my strong opinion that autumn is the most romantic season. The Flight of the Conchords is [are?] undoubtedly my guilty pleasure, and I have an undeniable crush on Michael W. Smith circa his â€˜Secret Ambitionâ€™ video.
But the most integral part of who I am lies in my relentless pursuit of a God who loves me, redeems me, and excites me – a God who is alive, who left His Spirit with us, and who promises greater things in the days ahead. Iâ€™m on a journey towards discovering more and more about the Author of extreme love and scandalous grace. Itâ€™s incredible what the Spirit is stirring in the hearts and lives of our generation. I truly believe that we can and will change the world [much to the chagrin of a Mr. John Mayer, who would rather we sit around and wait for things to be different].
Thereâ€™s so much more to say [type?], but Iâ€™ll leave that for another time. Talk soon, friends. Until then, keep spreading the Word and sharing the Love.
