Hello, reader! I am Mary Madeline, Mary Mad for short, MM for real-short. I am a twenty-three-year-old girl seeking an authentic, life-giving Jesus in this image-obsessed and polarized age.
I am really serious about laughter. I’m also serious about talking about taboo & controversial topics in a constructive manner! So hit me up for those things if you are so compelled. God did not mold me to be an even-kill, and I’m learning to be okay with that.
Quick history of my life if you care:
- The Mississippi Delta, the birthplace of the blues and Koolaid pickles, is my birthplace.
- I am a graduate of the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science, which is a public boarding school, where, ironically, I began a love affair with the humanities.
- I graduated from Mississippi State University in 2020. I studied cognitive psychology, and I liked it a lot but I don’t use it much at the moment. I’m still figuring out what I’m doing career-wise, but I love writing, and I am pursuing that for now.
- I came to know Christ at age fourteen, when I was radically exposed to my desperate need of scandalous grace.
- I love, love, love RUF (Reformed University Fellowship), and it’s where I’ve formed the closest and most rewarding relationships in college, (though I’m not necessarily reformed myself.)
- I am married to the best man ever, Kyle Schumpert. (Fun fact: I once told him that he would “never find a girlfriend, much less a wife.” Joke is on me!)
- We live in Birmingham, AL, where he attends Beeson Divinity School, and I work a day-job as a nanny.
- I am currently writing a book! Click on the “about my book” page to read more about that.
