Please come in and make yourself at home…

If I could right now, I would offer you a seat in a comfy armchair while I pour you a hot cup of fresh roasted coffee… or tea, if you prefer, I make a kickass cup of tea.

Because I want you to know that I see you and that you are important. You are not just a reader, a potential client, or a statistic to me; you are a person. And I want to know you. There is nothing quite like knowing and being known by other people.

So here’s a bit about me…

I am a writer, speaker, teacher, entrepreneur, hostess, and perpetual student who loves learning new things, meeting new people, and sharing life’s joys, struggles, and mysteries with fellow humans.

I believe in Jesus Christ. He is my raison d’ etre–my reason for being–and my personal mission is to invite others into lives of desperate dependence and authentic friendship with Him. I am not religious. Jesus spent way to much time criticizing religion while He was here on earth for that to seem like a good idea. But I am passionately pursuing a closer walk with Him as my King, my spiritual Father, and my closest Friend. I’d love to help you get to know Him better.

I also have the most wonderful husband I can imagine, Paul, who has walked beside me for over a decade through my biggest highs and lows. He reminds me every day to be a better person and never stop trying to make the world a better place.

One of my favorite things to do is just talk to people. I can spend hours sharing thoughts and trading ideas with someone willing to hear, and be heard. I think genuine conversation about important issues is one of the best (and most fun) ways to change each other’s lives for the better.

So, whether you do it through my books, through my blogs, or any other place I’m leaving my mark in the world, I hope that you can find hope, beauty, and encouragement to take with you today.

These discussions meet us right in the middle of our complicated human issues and offer us a safer space to invite other human beings into our experiences. This is how relationships form. This is how people grow.
