Hi, I’m Alexandra K. Bush, and I started blogging as TulipGirl in 2004.

My url was a Christmas gift from my husband —  he’s such a romantic!  Tech crashes and life derailed the site. The archives are gone, but I am back to the keyboard.

I write to encourage us as we become the people God has created us to be, especially in the realms of nurturing our children and using our talents in our communities.

John Calvin said, “Nearly all the wisdom we possess—almost everything we know—can be summed up under the knowledge of God and the knowledge of ourselves.”  I believe that seeking to know God and ourselves, is instrumental in becoming the people God has created us to be.

I’m motivated by the Gospel of Jesus Christ — that God created us and loves us.  We rejected Him and ran from Him.  He became like us and has come after us.  He changes our hearts, and we turn to Him in faith.

My background is in nonprofit management, and I especially like asking people to put their money where their mouth is — fundraising to support organizations doing good around the world.  But really, I want to help you connect with organizations doing the work worldwide that matters to you.

I’m blogging for fun, not profit.  On occasion, I’ll use an affiliate link and will clearly mark them with (aff).  These are only for books and items I actually use, and only when I remember.  I am not running ads.
