My name is Alyssa Poblete. (Poblete rhymes with spaghetti in case you were wondering how to pronounce it).
I am married to my best friend, Chris, mother to three amazing children (Geneva, 3, Haddon, 1, and Baby #3 joining us this January), and we are in our second year as a church planting family. We planted King’s Cross Church in Orange County, CA in April 2017.
If you have stumbled onto this page you are probably my mom or one of my best friends and already know all there is to know about me. But if you don’t already know, here are a few fun facts about me: I love good food, late night porch hangs with my neighbors, exploring our city, reading great books, and having people gather at our table for a homecooked meal and good conversation. This blog is a space where I will be sharing bits and pieces of our everyday life and how the reality of eternity bears weight on the everyday mundane stuff of life. That is why I named this blog Homegoing.
Homegoing:: The action of returning to one’s home, household, or native land; a return home.
C.S. Lewis writes, “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world” (Mere Christianity, 138). I have always been fascinated with the idea that this is not home. Life as we know it is temporal, and we are merely sojourners passing through. If this is true, it changes everything about how we interact with the mundane stuff of life. Suddenly every quiet, unseen, seemingly insignificant moment has eternal implications.
This blog will serve as a space where I can figuratively put pen to paper and work through the significance of eternity on those little moments in life. Thank you for joining along with me!
