I characterize myself as an ordinary woman with an irresistible urge to live an extraordinary life in Christ. My husband (of almost twenty years) and I live in the heart of the Midwest with our two creative, high-energy, high-volume children (ages 8 and 12), where we seek to live fully, love well, and laugh heartily. When I have time, I enjoy going to the bathroom alone, hiking in the mountains, singing in a choir, making jewelry, scrapbooking, and reading a book in peace. I’ve done each once in the last thirteen years.
