Have you met Christine? She has a pretty amazing story--far too much to fit into this little post, but you should know that this girl is really something (in a good way, of course!). We were fortunate enough to have her featured in ISSUE 02; remember that gorgeous hand-lettered quote? That was all her. Super talented, right?! (You can find the quote in the mag or here.) So, friend, meet Christine Errington (aka The Hipster Housewife)!
WHO ARE YOU?! / I am a daughter of the King, rescued and redeemed. I am an addict, an artist, a woman, and a mother (despite the fact that my babes did not biologically come from me). I am a yogi, a writer, a friend, and a daddy's girl. I am a wife and a creator.
WHERE DO YOU BELONG? / I belong with my family. And by that I mean my WHOLE family of believers, not just the family I am related to. I belong in early morning - that moment where night meets the day and the possibilities are just endless.
WHAT IS YOUR "WHY"? / I do everything I do for the glory of Jesus Christ. He saved me, and it is now my passion, mission, and ministry to share hope and healing in His name. I had to burry my best friend to an overdose and that compels me to share Jesus with others! I don't want to see that happen to anyone else. I'll play my small part and let God work miracles.
HOW DID YOU GET HERE? / This is far too long a story to fit neatly in a blurb! The short version: I was a heroin addict, close to death. By the incredible Grace of God and the support of my husband and family I now own a successful business. If you want the whole story, ask me sometime!
IF WE WALKED INTO YOUR LIFE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY, WHAT WOULD WE SEE? / I'd be at my desk in yesterday's pajamas or perhaps have upgraded to yoga pants. I'd be rocking out to something (Julien Baker at the moment) and pretty much covered in ink!
FAVORITE QUOTE / My favorite quote comes from the Bible - "Though your sins are as scarlet they shall be as white as snow." Isaiah 1:18
FAVORITE SOCIAL MEDIA / Instagram
FAVORITE ICE CREAM / Grapenut ice cream!
FAVORITE READ / Anything and everything from She Reads Truth!
WHAT IS YOUR UNIFORM? / Because I work from home I get to pick my outfit every day, but the only time I manage to get out is for yoga - so I pretty much live in all yoga and lulu!
IN THE INFINITE RAINBOW OF COLORS, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU BE AND WHAT WOULD YOU NAME IT? / Royal purple
TELL US A SECRET! / I'm an open book to a fault - not many secrets here!
UMBRELLA OR SUNGLASSES / Sunglasses
INTROVERT OR EXTROVERT / Introvert
COFFEE OR TEA / Coffee
DIGITAL OR PRINT / Print
SANDALS OR SNOW BOOTS / Sandals

DO YOU HAVE A WORD OF THE YEAR? / My word for the year is “obedience.”
