I'm the author of 8 books, a national speaker, blogger, lover of all things beautiful and true, especially in matters of theology and culture. Some favorite topics: the spirituality of food, parenting, wilderness, incarnational living, forgiveness. My books include Forgiving Our Fathers and Mothers: Finding Freedom from Hate and Hurt, Surviving the Island of Grace, The Spirit of Food: 34 Writers on Feasting and Fasting Toward God.
And to complicate this bio, I live on Kodiak Island, Alaska, where I work in commercial fishing with my husband and six children (mostly grown) on a remote wilderness island. From there, I direct the Harvester Island WIlderness Workshop. More here:
