I'm Jim. I’m almost 40 years old, so that probably makes me an old person for this board. Back when I started college, I started out as a Theater/Communications major at The University of Pittsburgh. Two years later I decided I wanted to pursue full time ministry so I transferred to Liberty University.
In the late ‘90s, I met my wife, Julie, at the cafeteria at school. We got married about a year later. I worked for a clothing store and an insurance company for about the next 7 years while I finished my Master of Arts and Master of Divinity degrees.
After that, we moved to a part of southern Virginia, where I was called to pastor a small rural church. There is a real goat farm right next door to me (Aberforth would be in trouble)! Julie works at a local hospital. We’ve been here for almost 10 years. I enjoy inline skating, watching sports, and marching band and Drum & Bugle corps music!
I’m a fan of Emma because she seems so down to earth. If more Hollywood people were like here, I think the world would be a better place. I love her work with People Tree. I enjoyed the Harry Potter series, and was impressed that most of the same cast was able to stay together for so long. I have read all of the HP books and watched all of the movies. I also read and watched Perks, and I read the Noah graphic novel, and watched the movie, of course. I haven’t been able to bring myself to see The Bling Ring. I’m just afraid that I won’t like that movie, and I don’t want to think less of Emma, so I’ve never seen it.
That’s me in a nutshell. I wish Emma the best in her work and relationships.
I hope to go to the religious section of the board and write some posts over there.
