I’m Sidnie, but most people call me Randi- it depends on where you know me from. You can call me whichever.
I’m a Southerner, with a sweet Alabama accent and roots darker than dirt. I’m a believer in tough love, I’m learning to forgive, and I’ve been humbled to my knees more times than I’d care to admit. I believe in God. I pray to St. Christopher when I travel and St. Anthony when I lose things. My momma tells me, “You can’t worry about what you don’t know about.” I procrastinate and I like to give hugs.
I’m a thirty-something single momma, growing into my sunburned skin and I’ve learned hard lessons about broken hearts and heart-homes. My bare feet are worn from the roads I’ve traveled, but somehow I find myself right back in the same Southern town I started in…
I started blogging at Green Enough For Me in the fall of 2009. There I wrote about the proverbial green grass in my hypothetical backyard as my very real, very hard marriage crumbled around me.
Pray and Scrub came from a desire to share my heart and home in a way that’s real, just as it is… That usually means messy.
Because sometimes when a Southern storm blows through and the clouds settle, there’s nothing left to do but pray and scrub. There’s life in a broken heart and love in the deepest pain. There’s beauty in praying your mess away, in scrubbing until your heart bleeds wide open.
Welcome! Let’s tell some tales…
