About

I am one radically loved by God.

I’m a wife, a mama, a writer, and a teacher.

Mostly, I’m a learner.

Somehow, I managed to get myself born in Texas. I love this place — even through its insufferable summers that last 8 months out of every blessed year. When I shake off this old world like a worn garment to walk into Glory, I’ll be looking for the bluebonnet covered hills.

Until then, a steadfast prayer escapes my lips on this long way Home: Keep my eyes open to Your wonders, Lord, lest I close them and despair.

  1. WOW. In so many ways we are so similar! This is like my life story…great family, saved at an early age, academically gifted, a writer, a reader, a preacher, a lover of God…and totally aware of my imperfection and therefore struggling with depression most of my life. It was a book, too, that began my journey to truth: Desiring God by John Piper. He states that God is most happy when we are happy in Him. Happy? I realized I wasn’t that. But God started teaching me to let go of perfection and learn to just rejoice in Him. A lot of that happened through his stripping me of myself while teaching in China and then through counseling. I’m so glad He turned me around!
