Who I Am

I am redeemed: washed by the blood of Jesus Christ and made new in him. I am a work-in-progress and in great need of his grace as I try and seek justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with him.
My husband is a resident-doctor, hardworking and a philosopher at heart.
I’m called “momma” by three beautiful children: a 5-year-old son who leads the pack, a natural poet, adventurous and smart, a 3-year-old son who was made to be a middle child, a charmer, lighthearted and sweet, and a baby daughter who lights the world around her, full of smiles, giggles and the occasional growl.
I studied Biblical Studies in undergrad, and minored in philosophy, and my thoughts have always been that of theology and philosophy and how the two are really one.

I love John Hughes movies, The Justice League, Russian literature, hipster coffee shops, and rhyming children’s books.
When I’m not writing (or reading, or building LEGO masterpieces with two sets of tiny hands), I can be found hiking, rock climbing, or uncovering everyday treasures with our always-adventuring boys and our daughter who is usually baby-wrapped on me like a happy koala.

My greatest influences are:
G.K. Chesterton
C.S Lewis
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Fyodor Dostoevsky
Victor Hugo
Alexander Dumas
Elisabeth Elliot
Søren Kierkegaard
St. Augustine

My life is simple, but full of the extravagant grace of God.
