Hey, there, friend! Welcome to my corner of the internet!
If you love poetry shot with hope and heartache, flash fiction that makes you think, and the occasional bit of sarcastic humor, you just may feel at home here.😊
I’m an old soul who’s young at heart…and that oxymoron just about sums up my entire existence.
I love deep, complex classics (think A Tale of Two Cities) and A.A. Milne’s lighthearted stories about Winnie-the-Pooh. Scrambling up steep ridges in the woods and curling up with a journal and a yummy latte have equal places in my heart. I could run around laughing and joking with my siblings and friends in the youth group (sometimes forgetting I’m technically one of their leaders) for hours, and yet I could say the same thing about sitting around a kitchen table with elderly friends and listening to the stories they’ve lived.
I just love life: in all of its beautiful rawness.
I think that’s why I write.
To capture the joy of living in words. To hold out the hope that shines from my Savior even in the darkest of nights. To marvel at the wonder of the daily miracles God sustains.
Isn’t He so good?
