On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine, of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined. And he will swallow up on this mountain the covering that is cast over all peoples, the veil that is spread over all nations. He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces. – Isaiah 25:6-8
Welcome! I’m Abby Hummel, and I’m on here talking about life, culture, and science through the lens of the gospel. My husband Aaron and I live Missouri with a daughter, son, and a large, ridiculous dog named Max. I’m a classically trained musician and a theology nerd (I have a B.A. double-major in Music and Christian Studies, and we’re part of a congregation in the Presbyterian Church of America, if you’re wondering), and I moonlight as a music teacher from time to time. After having a bunch of miscarriages, I finally had a baby and then had another one thirteen months later, and they’re still young so life gets a little crazy sometimes. I am really thankful to be home with them in these little years, but I also have lots of grownup things to chat about here on the blog during naptimes. I’ve been on the ride of my life keeping up with my husband’s career as a plant biotechnologist (which means “GMO crop maker,” for us laymen). It’s one of my life missions to understand more of his controversial world, and I’m doing my best to share what I can here with you guys.
