Storyboard Text

  • We moved next to Riverside, CA, where I was born and where all of my dad's family lived. I went to a church called the Grove, where my dad had returned to work as a pastor. 
  • It was a church where everyone knew who I was, because my dad had grown up there, too. My Papa had been senior pastor, then. I had a friend from birth named Agatha, and she helped my shy self make friends at the gigantic church of the Grove. 
  • But school followed the same pattern.  I made friends, then lost them by the end of fifth grade. I was too shy to make new ones, so I started to read during recess. 
  • GO AWAY!
  • Sixth grade was possibly the most turbulent year I had ever had. I went from Castle View, the school I had been attending... 
  • To a charter school named River Springs, where some of my church friends went. Unfortunately, we only attended every Thursday,  and every other day I spent learning alone while my parents worked to keep us supported in expensive Riverside. 
  • I didn't finish that worksheet, I'll do it tomorrow...I don't want to work...when will I see my friends again? 
  • After one day when I broke into tears about some small thing, it was decided. I was too lonely learning in a small preschool classroom with no one to talk to, so I would attend Benjamin Franklin Elementary School for the remainder of the year, before I left for middle school in 7th grade. 
  • It was all right, though, because I had friends at church. Weekly Wednesday meetings, discipleship group we called Impact, Sunday school, and my rabble of loving friends sustained me through those hard last months before middle school. 
  • By now I was used to the pattern. Make friends. Lose friends. Sit alone at recess.
