"Kelsey Kelsey"

I knew if I posted parents' names this would come up. My mom and dad were weird, but not THAT weird. No, my name was not Kelsey Kelsey. As long as I can remember I wanted a new name. When I was in the 1st grade I wrote "Shirley Feeney" on all my papers and even checked books out at the library under that name -- until I got sent to the principal's office. When I was 12 I went to church with a friend and introduced myself as "Jessica Hart", Jennifer and Jonathon being my parents, of course. I was constantly writing new names on my notebooks: Jessica Bennett (pronouced "Beh-nay"), Jennifer Hart, good movie star type names because I was going to Hollywood ya know. In high school my softball coach started calling me "Kelsey" and I thought, "how perky!". It stuck. That was way before the name Kelsey made it to the top of the preppy list for baby names. I was a forerunner even then......HA!

Won't it be cool when we get the new name Jesus has reserved only for us? That makes my heart race! A white stone, a new name.....WOW! Unbelievable! Revelation 2-3 is full of this great stuff!

So, what is ny name?? I'll give you a hint -- my parents loved the Beach Boys.

I never would have guessed that your name was anything BUT Kelsey. However being shown a few photos of your little fam...circa 1994....the shock and disbelief cleared. ;)

I was just telling someone the other day that I didn't like the name Rhonda because I had never met a Rhonda I liked. Now I have to shift my whole paradigm! :-D
