My life of Faith and Roller Derby.

Sunnie the Announcer
I have come  to the conclusion that I am strange and I'm okay with that. It's part of what makes me fit in well in the roller derby world. There strange is embraced. I can have purple hair and nobody bats an eye. I love that. The rest of the world may never get me and I'm okay with that. There's only one other place like that for me and that's my church. Words I never thought I would say again. Right now I'm still shy. I'm not one to make close friends very quickly I have a lot of friends but very few that I'm super close to.  I digress. I like my church like I like my derby. Wild, loud and with a lot of action. It seems odd even to me because I'm the quiet one at church but I'm like that at derby- till the action starts.
I'm excited about everything that has happend in my derby life as of late. I'm an announcer for the Northside Fury Roller Derby and Rocket City Roller Girls. Yes that is two teams. I stay busy! :) I love announcing and I love roller girls. Derby is like this never ending family you can meet someone in another town and it doesn't matter what you look like or where you're from if you are derby there's an instant bond.

I have a church home now  and I'm excited about that too. I love my wild church. :) I just have to be careful not to get too crazy on bout days. Gotta preserve the voice. That too is like a worldwide family I get the same kind of reception. One of the things I love about this church is that they don't judge you on your hair color or cut and what you wear is insignificant. You will see everything from people in shorts and football jerseys to suits and dresses. We have mohawks, and brightly colored hair to uber tidy hair.

Want to catch me the next time I announce? I will be rockin' the mic for the Northside Fury March 25th at Champions Roller World. Click the NFRD's website for all the info!

Want to join me at church? I attend Calvary Chapel AG on Greenshadow and BW8 Sundays at 10 a.m.


  1. Shelly, You are by far the sweetest girl that I have ever met. To this day I still brag about you in more ways than one. We may not see each other like we use to but you still and will always have a place in my heart. Another sweet thing about you is that I'll never forget how you took me under your wing on the first day of my new job. You never judged me or looked down upon me you stood by me till the end. You are angel sent from above to serve a purpose to us all. I love you Shelly. I can't say enough about you. You are AWESOME!!!! Sarah D.

  2. Love this post! Oh, and love YOU! :)
