OK. Here goes. I’ve been going at this writing thing since about 1978 (you should SEE the diary entries from the early 80’s). I even spent a decade as a technical writer/instructional designer for the best company ever in Fort Worth, TX after college at Texas Tech University. But nowadays, I write when God stirs up words in me; I blog (at times), journal (all the time), and write/teach/speak words when God pushes me there.
I’m a wife to my high school/college/forever sweetheart who God conveniently and knowingly dropped into my world during perhaps the hardest week of my life at Young Life’s Frontier Ranch at the ripe old age of 15. I’m mom to two superfly kids, Braeden and Maya, who keep me on my parenting toes…and who contribute to God’s daily reminder to me of, “you most certainly have not got it all figured out, darlin’.” Those three alone have taught me more about how much God loves me than anyone else in my world.
I have better friends than I deserve, a church that takes care of my tribe unconditionally, and a family God planted around me to love me even when I’m unlovable and rally around me when I need them.
I love to use acronyms, overuse ellipses…and feel certain math and cilantro are from the enemy. When I’m not writing or teaching, I’m probably at a concert with my hubby, camping in the mountains with my tribe, biking, hiking, or perusing flea markets and thrift stores. I’m inspired by good music (mostly The Avett Brothers) and deep, sincere lyrics. I collect dogs and firmly believe they should always be on the furniture. I read a lot. And, I live by the truth that a good haircut and cool shoes can fix any outfit. I hope to always be a difference maker this side of heaven.
