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 Maternal-Fetal Fellow, hardworking and a philosopher at heart, with conviction and wisdom, grace and truth, he seeks to defend the voiceless and care for patients.
I’m called “momma” by four beautiful children: a 8-year-old son who leads the pack, a natural poet, adventurous and smart; a 5-year-old son who was made to be a middle child, a charmer, and a blossoming comedian; a 3-year-old daughter who lights the world around her, full of smiles, belly laughs, and a whole lot more spunk than anyone so tiny should have; and sweet baby boy, delightful and mellow (an uncommon characteristic in our home).
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 baking bread, drinking too much tea, hiking, or uncovering everyday treasures with our always-adventuring littles.
My greatest influences are:
Louisa May Alcott
My life is simple, but full of the extravagant grace of God.
