I like to write words and share them on the internet. Technically that makes me a “Blogger,” but I think that word sounds like somebody throwing up in their purse, so I try not to use it.

Either way, my love for writing began as a hobby when my husband and I moved to Guatemala. I realized the cool thing to do when you move overseas is to start a blog, so I did. Overtime, writing came to mean much more than keeping in touch; it was a way to process whatever was happening in our lives: like our move overseas to a place of deep poverty. Like my begrudging first passage into motherhood. Like our move and transition back to the United States. Like the devastating loss of our second baby.

And those are the things I like to write about: Marriage and Parenting, Grief and Poverty. Learning what it means to Love God and Love My Neighbor. I think you’ll find that my style of writing is not “how to” as much as it’s “me too”. It’s heaps of Jesus with hints of laughter. Sarcasm is my second language.

As I try to honestly share what I’m going through and what God is teaching me, I hope you’ll be encouraged to hear from another working through life’s trenches. I hope you’ll enjoy yourself and leave feeling comforted, challenged, or just plain tickled.
