The Big 5-0

the_big_5_0_2_inch_round_button-r6c21ecd37ce644f2a18ea7916cfba050_x7j3i_8byvr_324This year will be a big birthday year for the Schupp family, but that is not the “big 5-0” I am referring to.   The big 5-0 refers to this being my 50th blog post.   When I started writing a year ago, I didn’t really have a plan as to what I envisioned my blog would be or become.  I just knew I wanted to write one.  This was a bit surprising to me because I always hated writing assignments in high school and college – grading was very subjective and I did much better in objective classes like sciences and mathematics.   Being able to write on whatever subject I want to and as much or as little as I want to definitely makes writing more enjoyable.

I have enjoyed getting some inspiration as I have thought and prayed about what to write each time. I have enjoyed sharing some big life events with friends and family.  I have enjoyed hearing sometimes from y’all – comments, encouraging words, ideas and reflections.   I would like to give those of you who are regular readers a chance to give me some feedback.  I’d like to know which of my blogs you especially enjoyed or that spoke to you.  I would also like to know if there are any particular subjects you’d like to hear more about.  Or if you think it’s time for me to retire from writing since there’s already so many blogs out there (think “information overload”), I want to hear that too.

Future ideas I want to run by you for comment as well:

  1.  Dear Dr. Angie – anonymous questions from readers about health, life, whatever
  2. More medical topics like I’ve done in the past
  3. Patient vignettes – stories from real patients (names not given) that illustrate a point or are very interesting or inspirational

Would you please either comment in a separate Facebook message, in the comments section of this blogpost, or in a private e-mail to me (

Thank you in advance for your responses!

    Angie, I love reading whatever you write because it gives me a connection with you and your family and I actually find most information useful. I so fondly remember our days in Jordan – Keep it up! Love, Linda

    I love your blog! I love the variety of topics you discuss, especially the wisdom you share from personal experience. You keep everything real and relatable. I imagine you have an endless well of inspiration given your background, education, profession, faith, travel, and live experiences. The Dear Dr. Angie is a fantastic idea and I’d love to see even more pieces where you marry faith/spiritual issues to health/medical concerns (for example, either through inspirational patient vignettes or Scripture passages with hard science/medical facts). It is very refreshing in this day and age to see a medical professional speak boldly and uninhibited about the undeniable connection between faith and science. I also think topics concerning medical ethics as an uncompromising Christian physician would make for intriguing reads. Keep writing!! God bless you abundantly in all!
