    At the beginning of the month, I had the lovely privilege of teaching at my church’s monthly women’s gathering. I hemmed and hawed (in my own brain) for awhile before accepting this invitation…and then I hemmed and hawed before the Lord because I was absolutely sure there was no way He had anything fresh FORRead More

    I. For over two years now I have been listening to Andrew Peterson’s “The Burning Edge of Dawn” album. To me it is the sound of autumn and longing and hope. When it released in 2015, I was filled with unease and unrest about so much. We sensed that change was ahead, but had noRead More

  • My words have been so weighty lately – maybe the winter, maybe the sickness that never ends, maybe the time to ruminate. It’s very much needed, given that writing helps me to work out my salvation (“through fear and trembling” sometimes!) and hear God more clearly. But the days are slowly, slowly getting longer andRead More

    I homeschool our kindergartner. This has been a learning year for us both — sometimes we feel as though we are thriving and learning, sometimes it is an effort just to mark ONE thing off the list. We are committed to yearly evaluating prayerfully what is the right fit for our family in terms ofRead More

    This morning I needed a do-over with my big kid. We are so different and where she is go-go-go, I am wait-wait-wait. I’m learning how to meet her where she is so that I can (hopefully) train and equip her for her own journey with God and with others. As I finished blow drying myRead More

  •   It’s Saturday and there are egg hunts and breezes and groaning creation is covered by a haze of clouds and the glory of the Lord seems far off. We live between the cracked earth and torn curtain of a dark Friday and the silent stillness of an uninhabited tomb on Sunday. Do you feelRead More

  • I was probably in elementary school and I distinctly remember my mom stopping the music in the minivan to explain to me and my brother what moved her about the song. I didn’t get it as a kid because, well, you know how kids can be. I wanted to keep listening to the music andRead More

  • Reeet! Reeet! Roo-reet!reet!reet! Wee-oot! Wee-oot! Weeoot! OooEH ooh! ooh! ooh! Twitter!* I don’t often get up before my children, the way all the bloggers tell me I should for optimal self care. Last night as I crawled into bed, however, I felt my scalp go from unwashed hair day 7 to burning dry fire, soRead More

    Oh Lord, who created with a word and set into motion the rhythms of seas and stars and sun and seasons, meet me now, in this in-between, in the tension of change. I thought because it was familiar territory, I would be better-practiced. But change unsteadies me anyway. You are the God whose character isRead More

    I have no words right now. They are brewing, of course. They are notes in my phone, scratches in the margins of my calendar, bullet point lists in the various notebooks I have. So recently I asked my friend Chelsea if she had words. We hadn’t talked about writing lately, but I was curious ifRead More

  •   Ask anyone who knows me: I am a wordsmith. Word nerd. Wielder of words. I love learning new words, carefully choosing the right word for the moment, using words with intentionality and purpose. Language is finite, which just kills me, but I will try my darndest (not a word) to use language and wordsRead More
