About Will

Hey everyone! 
My name is Will Norrid and welcome to my personal blog. I have a little bit of everything here: Bible study, favorite videos, quotes, musical theater commentary, and personal reflections.
I am a 30-year-old dreamer/writer/minister living in rural West Tennessee. I love my small town, but I also enjoy escaping to Memphis for the day. When finances allow, I love to travel - particularly to New York City.

I am privileged to preach for a small, independent congregation of great, Christ-minded people.  Being the minister for a small church has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.  We laugh together, share together, and cry together.
I have faced a number of health challenges in recent years, but through it all my relationship with God, my family, and my congregation have helped me endure.  I am grateful to all those who have helped me on this journey.
I love to write and I love to teach. My career in ministry has combined those two passions and allowed me to have a creative outlet that directly helps people that I care about.

Some of my favorite things include:
Jesus, my family, thoughtful quotes, blue raspberry Jolly Ranchers, CapriSuns, journaling, the voices of Emmylou Harris, Shawn Colvin, Tracy Chapman, Mary Lambert, Jewel, Missy Higgins, and Patty Griffin, meaningful conversations, Broadway shows, Shakespeare, Dr. Pepper, church camp, good writing, independent bookstores, back roads, sunroofs,  coconut, Apple products, the St. Louis Cardinals, chocolate, rain, being home, my younger sister's sarcasm, New York City, autumn, NPR, and a good romantic comedy.

You'll likely find me talking about these things and more on this blog.

Thanks for stopping by. If you are ever in West Tennessee, drop by and see Buckley (my lovely black cat who rules my house) and I.
