I was the little girl with the notebook. Boxes of journals now gather dust in the shed, documenting the life of a quiet observer, curious wonderer, apprehensive mama and truth-seeker. They are all sizes and shapes; some spiral-bound, some comprehension books, some beautifully designed and lovingly full of the beatings of my heart. My favourites now are the plain black moleskine, stacked neatly, their rippled and scribbled pages heavy. Maybe this speaks to the way I've grown, and the classic season of my 30's.
I've never stopped writing, but over the past few years it's become more public as I've embraced my passion and no longer wrestle with the writer title.

Writing is how I piece together the world, make sense of myself and of God. It's how I pray, how I communicate, and how I still my mind enough to think.

I believe in the power of words. The words we speak impact our lives and the lives of those around us profoundly. I love the written word and this too can have the same affect - it can bring life, hope and reignite passion or inspiration. We can capture our world with our words whether it be in a heart-felt blog post, a magazine article or an essay on social justice.

I believe stories are what bring us closer to understanding who God is and who we are.

I try my best to keep my phone from my hand and my heart in the present.
I may not get back to you straight away, but I will get back to you.
