I am passionate about recognizing the image of God in everyone, and seeing the truth of God everywhere. I’m continually looking for ways to disrupt my status quo.

Raised in a primarily white environment, I now live as a minority in my neighborhood. I hold to pacifist leanings even as I live in a military community.  And after a lifetime spent in conservative evangelical churches, I am quickly falling in love with the Episcopal Church.

I’m an INFJ, a 4w5 on the Enneagram scale, and am married to a wonderfully left-brained, logical husband who tries to keep me grounded.  We have 5 kids that we educate at home. I love coffee, good music, books, the beach, other cultures, Earl Grey tea, silence, Bollywood movies, good food, sweet wine, chocolate, memoirs, paint, paper, making jewelry, reading a good quote, Madeleine L’Engle, Rob Bell, wonder and mystery, theology, deep thoughts and quirky movies, traveling and road trips, story and liturgy, campfires and Christmas, Twitter and Instagram.

I'm a Florida girl in a Midwest world. My life has been full of the unexpected. I write about this unexpected journey, multiculturalism, and faith. I'm a firm believer that Jesus shows up most beautifully in the messy in-betweens of life.I write, read, cook and art.
