I’ve spent more than 10 years telling powerful stories, with a special interest in the arenas of faith and family life. My features and essays have appeared in The Washington Post, Fast Company, The Everymom, Coffee + Crumbs, Living Lutheran and more. Of the writing life, I agree with Ann Patchett, who says, “Writing is a miserable, awful business. Stay with it. It is better than anything in the world.”
