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 6-year-old son who leads the pack, a natural poet, adventurous and smart; a 4-year-old son who was made to be a middle child, a charmer, lighthearted and sweet; and a 1-year-old daughter who lights the world around her, full of smiles, belly laughs, and a fair amount of attitude.
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 three 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 nearby digging in the closest pile of dirt or splashing in a mud puddle.
My greatest influences are:
Louisa May Alcott
My life is simple, but full of the extravagant grace of God.
