Hello there! My name is Kate Hurley. I am a singer songwriter, worship leader, writer, and teacher based out of Boulder, CO. I’ve played everywhere from military bases in Italy to huge hippie gatherings. (go to my webite for more about me and free downloads of my music, along with a store where you can buy it. You can also buy it on itunes.)
I have the distinct privilege of being an Enter the Worship Circle Artist. I was a guest writer and artist on Enter the Worship Circle: Third Circle. I’ve also been featured on the Absolute Worship series.
I feel a bit sheepish about calling this blog the Sexy Celibate, because I don’t know if I would necessarily think of myself as sexy. But “The Pretty Dang Good Looking If You Stop To Think About It Celibate” url was already taken.
Even the celibate part is a little weird because I haven’t chosen celibacy for life. I am hoping to be a temporary celibate. I really love nuns. I have met quit a few in my travels and they are amazing. That being said, I really don’t want to be one.
But”celibate” is a way more interesting word than “single, “so I had to make the executive artistic decision to use it. I mean, would you even read this blog if it was called the Sexy Single? I know I wouldn’t.
Basically, I like my blog name even though neither of the two words in the title are accurate. They are ironic, and that makes up for accurate.
Here are some of the things that I love:
-Dark chocolate, good cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, and nut thins all on the same plate.
-Being outside. It’s not that it reminds me of how small I am. It reminds me of how big God is, and yet how small He makes Himself to be close to me. He created universes that I can’t begin to understand, but He also created a leaf with tiny lines on it that I can hold in my hand.
-Giving a hug to someone who is usually ignored.
-Writing my first book, Cupid is a Procrastinator: Making Sense of the Unexpected Single Life, which will be in stores soon.
-According to the paragraph above, nuns.
-Children and teenagers; laughing with them. I really want my own some day. Children that I bear myself or adopted children or even someone else’s children, I just really want some in my life.
-Being a good neighbor.
-Loving people with everything I am.
-Writing music that will get into people’s heads and bring a little more light in there.
-Traveling around the world and meeting beautiful people everywhere I go.
-Painting an accurate picture of God to those who have misunderstood him, which is the mission statement for my life.
-Sticking quarters on my face. Lots of them. It is seriously my best party trick.
