Who maintains this blog?
Hannah Elise is a twenty-one year old newlywed and a part-time teacher’s assistant who works with special needs children. A self-fashioned zöedidact, she thrives under the idea that education is not about textbooks and classrooms, it is about life. She’s a follower of Christ, stumbling often and dwelling in His grace. Often full of impatience, she’s a country girl biding her time in the city, dreaming of her own patch of green.
Why “Pages Left Unturned”?
The title is pulled from the lyrics of the song “Beautiful Words” by The Afters.
We are words
On pages that we’ve left unturned
An ending no one’s ever heard
We are a story slowly unfolding
The entire song is a favorite of mine, but the chorus stuck out to me especially, and I snagged it. We are a story, slowly unfolding…
One of her many penchants is for studying her roots, though she wouldn’t call herself a genealogist by any means. After a discussion with her paternal grandmother about growing up in England, she found herself researching the little town of Aiketgate. She didn’t find much information, but she did find a beautiful picture of the countryside. Having a much deeper penchant for homesteading and pastoral scenes, she clung to the name and declared that her one-day homestead would bear it, too. Thus, the blog (or at least, its URL) that serves to record her passions aptly carries the title as well.
Why is she writing about herself in the third person?
Most likely for the same reason that she occasionally speaks in a British accent, starts mud fights, waxes eloquent about potatoes, and quotes movies. She’s just plain quirky.
Why isn’t there any more information on the About page?
Because she doesn’t know what else you want to know. Ask her questions.
