Kristin Emily Friend

I began writing in 2004, sharing regular email updates about my mother’s last year here on this earth. Since that time, friends and acquaintances have encouraged me to write.  As I hone my craft, writing topics which I gravitate towards include travel experiences, ice cream, and ponderings about life and God as I walk through a mid-faith crisis, realizing I have more questions than answers. Sharing life and talking theology with my beloved husband is tops on my list of things to do. This Enneagram 6w5 is a foodie who also loves observing nature, reading memoir, talking for hours with friends, and creating new flavors of homemade ice cream.   

Would you like to travel vicariously with my husband and me? We have visited all 50 states of the USA, and one summer we ran 5K in each of the Lower 48. Traveling internationally, our wanderlust has taken us to over 30 countries together with multiple visits to Hungary and Peru. Stow away in our luggage or do the next best thing by following along at our family blog, Gregg Friend’s Weblog – Our Adventures documented by Kristin Emily.

Do you enjoy pondering … wondering about life, God, theology? Do you have more questions than answers? If so, pour yourself a cup of tea, have a seat, and mull over life with me at Pondering Friend to Friend with Kristin Emily.

Are you, like my husband and me, obsessed with ice cream? We own six electric ice cream makers which use ice and rock salt. They have served us well for many neighborhood ice cream socials as well as sharing frozen treats with family and friends. Now, those machines face relegation to new homes, having been outperformed by a tabletop ice cream maker which magically freezes without all the fuss. This allows us to quickly and easily create ice cream in our flavor du jour.

For years I longed to attend Penn State University’s Ice Cream 101 weekend course. The month before my 60th birthday, my dream came true. Our ice cream hobby *aka obsession* has only grown as a result. Join us in the joy of chilling cream at Two Ice Cream Enthusiasts where I will share recipes, flavor combinations, tips, and other ice cream adventures.
