hi, i'm kerrington
I started Dare to Tell a couple years ago, but I have since refined and refocused what I feel like the Lord is calling this blog to. Honestly, I haven't been as consistent over this as I have needed to be, and I'm trying to be more faithful over this outlet. I have a vast array of interests, ranging from discipleship and the Bible's Jewish roots to wildlife conservation and animal behavior. Here's a bit more about me:
• I am a senior Crown Scholar at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where I am double-majoring in Biology and in Spanish and minoring in Africana Studies. I'm a member of the University Honors Program, the Biological Sciences Honors Program and the Early Entry M.S. Program in Biology.
• Save pictures taken of me, I have taken all the pictures that appear on my blog.
• I'm an Enneagram 8 through and through.
• I spent a month in the Okavango Delta in Botswana, where I fell in love with Nature Guiding and my first true taste of the African bush.
• I volunteer as an educator and handler at Serpentarium Magic Inc. in Mills River, North Carolina, where I have learned to handle a variety of venomous snakes (including the most venomous snake in the world).
• I have a pet Gila monster named Gilbert.
I fall strongly in the camp that the Lord has instilled and knit unique passions in each and every one of us that He intends to use for the furtherance of His Kingdom here on earth. I have spent most of my life pursuing my passions -- wilderness, nature, animals, conservation -- and I have a fairly good idea of how the Lord wants to use those as ministry, though I'm open to whatever it is He wants to do. Aside from offering interesting tales about wildlife encounters and conservation tips, I hope that through this blog you're able to gain a better understanding of what your passions are and how the Lord wants to use them to further His Kingdom.
I'd love to hear from you as things come up, whether they be questions about God or nature or stories from personal experiences you've had. You are welcome and wanted here, so please don't hesitate to reach out.
May the dust of the Rabbi cover you,
