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 daughter who each day shows us who she is, even as a fledgling newborn.
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 happily along for the ride.

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

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