My Heart is in Third Grade
Pre-3rd grade, but as close as I could get. In third grade, I sat next to Jeremy. I can't recall his last name. He had spiky blond hair. He was skinny. I think he might have had freckles. If I could find a yearbook from my school for that year, I could tell...

Not That I Don't Love Clothes
The second week of 7 focuses on clothes. My "fasts" for the week: Only wear 7 articles of clothing, including shoes, for 7 days. No jewelry, besides wedding rings, and no accessories. Give away at least one article of clothing per day for 7 days. Honestly, ...

Sunday Poem: Build for Beth
An eye for an eye and then none of us can see, but I'm sitting here looking wide at a woman overflowing with grace, and I want to hold her hand  and give back all she's lost, but I cannot. I can't undo her painful history, so I look deeper, and I see what h...

Writing Words
I am struggling with a couple of writerly things in this rough draft. One of them involves major word-cuts. I went to church with my soul churning, not sure how I would decide what to cut and what to keep.  I sat down on a sofa and pulled out my kindle. I w...

Making My Own Struggle Worth It
Over the weekend, I blogged a bit about the 7 study I am a part of . I said I would share about the second half of my Food Week, meaning the part where I did something instead of just NOT doing something. In a way, it was still fasting. I fasted from sleepi...

Staggering
I recently read 7 by Jen Hatmaker. The book spoke to something that had been stirring inside me for quiet a while. There were some other things happening and I eventually felt led to start a small group at church. We are using The 7 Experiment to "stage our...

I love Death Comes for the Archbishop. And I added a bunch of these to my list. 

A book I know you have not read, that you should… MINE. LOL. No really, my agent is awesome and it will get published (an editor who has worked on your books loved it, so I am optimistic). One day, Jacques will sell it and you will read it. ;)

Introduction
A little bit about myself? Well, I like ice cream and gelato and frozen custard and just about any milky delight. I write poetry and I read a lot and, well, words are my favorite thing in the whole wide world. I have a Hebrew one tattooed on my left ankle and I will write on just about anything, given half a chance. I am a once-reluctant convert to Kindle. I graduated high school in the year 2000, but I still have no flying car to show for that accomplishment. I am from Eastern Kentucky. I love Jesus, and I am married to a minister. I have two sons and one stepdaughter, whom I love like my own. Anything else you need to know?
