Hi! I’m Tabitha Alloway, wife, homeschooling mama, and daughter of the King. You might find me sipping chocolate chai tea, investigating a new stack of books, wandering down the dirt road going no place in particular, running electric wire through stud walls (I’m a licensed electrician), correcting my kids’ grammar, snickering at The Babylon Bee, or puzzling over the great questions of life posed to me by my children, like, “Do birds have farts?”
I enjoy writing and blogging, read like an addict, and study/research a number of things. My homeschool style would be A-Little-Bit-Of-This-And-A-Little-Bit-Of-That: classical, Charlotte Mason and unschooling all play a part in our education approach.
I love books. A friend and I started a group on Facebook where good books can be discussed and recommended: Living Books Consortium. Come join the group!
And thanks for stopping by!
About the Name
“Pursuing Logos.” I chose this for several reasons. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”
The Word is Logos. Christ is Logos. He is the Eternal Word of God, the Father’s revelation of Himself to man. My desire in life is to treasure and pursue Him above all else.
Logos is also used in reference to God’s written Word, which is a lamp to our feet and light to our path. I want to seek to know and obey the wisdom contained in this precious, God-breathed utterance.
These would represent the “capital L” uses of this word.
But I like the word logos as a “little l” word, as well. In the Aristotelian tradition, logos means “reasoned discourse.” I desire to exercise reason, discernment, and have a sound mind as the Scripture speaks of, as I pursue and write about my many interests—be it reviewing a novel, explaining how I organize chores, commenting on things that are happening in the church and world, or sharing meditations from a passage of Scripture. I want my writing to reflect my relationship with my Creator, manifest His truth, and edify others.
Ultimately, my life itself is an open book—a discourse, a commentary, an utterance—in a word, a logos of all I believe and am.
May it be to the glory of God; this is my prayer.
