I AM A WRITER WHO LIVES SOMEWHERE IN THE TENSION BETWEEN WANDERLUST AND ROOTEDNESS. I CURRENTLY MAKE MY HOME IN georgia WITH MY HUSBAND AND TWO CHILDREN but i have lived in and left parts of my heart in the middle east and south asia.
IN ADDITION TO MY ONLINE HOME HERE, YOU’LL ALSO FIND ME WRITING REGULARLY AT SHELOVES MAGAZINE AND THE MUDROOM AND ELSEWHERE ONLINE. I HAVE AUTHORED ESSAYS IN SEVERAL BOOKS AND I AM A PROUD MEMBER OF THE REDBUD WRITERS GUILD.
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 south of Atlanta. We moved in 2017 along with our two kids to work for a non-profit in Bangladesh. Now we are back “home” in Georgia, learning what life looks like when we stay put and are looking for our next steps.
I am passionate about diversity and justice, 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.
LET’S BE KNOWN FOR LISTENING TO GOD,
LEARNING FROM OTHERS,
AND LEADING LIVES THAT LOVE.
