Though my family’s roots run deep in the soil of the southern United States (I will always be a Georgia girl no matter where I go), we are learning to love hot milk tea instead of sweet iced tea as we make our home in South Asia.
You will find me here writing about creating space to listen to God and others and loving well. I’m also writing regularly at SheLoves Magazine and The Mudroom. I am a proud member of the Redbud Writer’s Guild. I have authored essays in several books and you can find my work elsewhere online.
If you read even a little of what I write you will find out pretty quickly that I love to experience cultures not my own and live somewhere in the tension between wanderlust and longing for home.
My husband and I lived in the Middle East as a newly married couple and then spent a decade back in the states while our family was growing. We never lost our love for the world, staying active in both traveling and loving the international and refugee communities not far from our home. Now, along with our two kids, we are living and doing non-profit work in South Asia.
I am passionate about justice and welcoming the outsider, in humbly learning through open doors and hearts.
I found my roots as a teenager in American evangelicalism but found my wings in the global church. I am equally at home and challenged by contemplative prayer and deep study of Scripture, traditional and progressive, loud worship music and silence, the monastic and the modern. I love to experience the diversity of how God is moving and speaking around the world and has been through the ages.
I especially love international arts and food, reading, yoga, getting outdoors, a good tv or movie binge, and game night with my family.
I LOVE hearing from you. Comment on a post, let’s connect on social media or email me on the contact page. I look forward to hearing your story.
