Story
Tagline
I tell the stories of spiritual ragamuffins, rebels and refugees.
Introduction
I'm the author of If Only: Letting Go Of Regret (Beacon Hill Press, 2014), two books about the parables of Christ, and have contributed to four recent devotional projects. I'm a regular contributor to Christianity Today's popular Her.meneutics blog, and maintain my own blog at http://www.patheos.com/blogs/pilgrimsroadtrip/.

I've done a wide variety of freelance writing including plays and skits, curriculum, articles, and ghost-writing. I've served as a church communications director, been on staff at Trinity International University, and currently handle communications responsibilities on a freelance basis for a handful of small faith-based non-profits. I'm married, and am mother of three and grandmother to two.
