Welcome to “Tea with Abbey”

I am a senior at the University of Arizona, studying Science Education: emphasis in Chemistry and a minor in Biochemistry. I look forward to being a high school science teacher someday soon.

Yes, I do like tea, however it isn’t one of my main interests. In other words, it isn’t what I’m known for.  I chose this name simply because “AbbeysBlog.com” was already taken. Besides, having tea with me is a good way to get to know me.  So pull up a chair, brew yourself a cup of tea, read my blog and get to know me a little.

Along with being in full time school, I have an internship this semester at a local high school, and I am also a nanny.

I love to Arizona two-step. I especially love dancing with my boyfriend, Jacob, who is my best friend and the sweetest man ever.

I enjoy working out with my personal CrossFit trainer, reading a book when on a school break, and finding new and interesting things to make in my rice maker. Last week it was Rice Krispie Treats.

More than anything, I hope and pray that I am a girl who is known for her desire to serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins (1 John 4:10).   If I am a girl who is known for loving God, it is only because He loved me first and saved me from my sins.

This past Easter (2016), I was confirmed in the Catholic Church. (I bet you didn’t see that one coming!) This has been the best decision in my entire life. I love being Catholic! So, why does a girl who was raised in a strong Evangelical home, who loved her Protestant life, become a Catholic? Well, I can honestly say the Bible lead me straight to Rome.

    Dear Abigail (If I’d said “Dear Abby” you may’ve thought I was looking for advice!),
    Listened to The Brethren.
    Very well done!!!
    Your voice sounded perfect for that story.
    Also browsed your websites. You have a beautiful family. It is so refreshing to see ladies dressed like ladies. Keep it up. And guard your God-given gifts.
    Thank you very much for your efforts.

      Thank you, Peter, for the comment and complements. I give the glory to God for any talent I may possess. All the same, it’s very encouraging as a reader to hear from my listeners.
      God bless,

    Hi, I spoke with you today about getting some photos of Rattlesnake Ropers practicing at Saguaro Canyon Church. Were you able to find those photos? If not, may I use another of your team’s photos for the newsletter? Please let me know ASAP. Can’t find an email address for you. Thanks for your help.

  5. Hello Abigail!

    My name is Hannah Pfeiffer. I have been thoroughly enjoying some of the books you have recorded on LibriVox and was hoping to exchange contact information with you. We seem to have a lot in common. 🙂 Feel free to shoot me an email anytime.

    God bless,

    Hello Abbey, My name is Shaina Schexnider. I am from Louisiana and I have been listening to my Audio Bible and when I heard your name it was kind of intriguing to me because my grandmother was a Rasmussen from Washington State. I was wondering if maybe we were somehow related. Maybe we can exchange some info just to see. If not, it has still been a pleasure listening to you read.

  7. Hey Abbey! I was just listening to the dramatic reading of Pollyanna, I LOVE the way you read! I am rather particular about how people read my favorite books and am very glad when they are read well!! And since I have heard how well you read, I am off to listen to your version of Little Women (which I have never heard a satisfactory version of yet), and Little Lord Fauntleroy. And I noticed that five of the Pollyanna readers are Rasmussens. Are all of them your siblings? As the 6th of 12, I love meeting other big families.

      Hello, dear LibriVox Listener,

      Thank you for your comment and compliments. I’m glad you enjoy the books I’ve read. Yes, all the Rasmussen readers in Pollyanna and Little Lord Fauntleroy are my siblings. There are 8 of us. Big families are fun, indeed. Never a dull moment.

      Thanks again for the compliments!
