I go by Sha, 'round these parts. There's not a lot to know about me--I grew up in the middle of nowhere in Minnesota. I went to college inthe middle of nowhere in Iowa. I double-majored in history as well as writing and rhetoric.

I'm also married to my true love, and while our lives have had ups and downs that have dragged us across the country, we are now happy and situated for the long-term.

Now that we're settled and living comfortably, my husband has finally been able to indulge his gaming addiction. While I've always been a fan of board games and video games, it is through his influence that I found games beyond the typical Clue, Sorry, and Rummikub that I played with my family.

And that brings us here! I've been a lurker for several years, but I've finally decided to register. I'll probably stay a lurker, but at least if someone catches me at it, they can find something other than a blank page.

The following is what you would call my mantra. I try my best to live by these words, but I fail often, and horribly.

Mark 12:28-31:
One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important?"

"The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these."

James 2:14-19:
"What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

But someone will say, 'You have faith; I have deeds.'

Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder."
