I am a lover of words, hikes, sea kayaks, iced green tea, comfortable shoes, and mid-century modern design.
I am a believer in hope and a recipient of scandalous grace. I waltz and wrestle with the realities of modern faith and the undeniably powerful ways of my ancient God.
Of all the things I hold dear, first and foremost are my family. I have been overwhelmingly blessed to explore life with my husband of 18 years, Toby. A few years ago, our lives became a load more joyful and a tad more chaotic when three foster boys invaded our world. In November 2010, we legally became family and with little warning, our carefree world of two became a wild adventure of five.
I am a licensed therapist in the Seattle area and studied at Washington University in St. Louis and The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology.
While you can regularly read my writings here, you will also find me guest posting on various blogs and ezines. In addition, my writings have been featured in various magazines, such as: Proverbs 31, Just Between Us, SpiritLed Woman, Radiant, and Relevant. Currently, I’m in the throes of tackling my first book: an adventure both exhilarating and terrifying.
In our “spare” time, my husband and I are outspoken advocates for foster care and family.
