For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a Triple Type A, “make it happen” (my dad’s favorite mantra) striver and achiever (I’m a 3 on the Enneagram, which tells you everything you need to know), but these days my striving looks more like sitting in silence on a park bench, my dog at my feet, as I slowly learn to let go of the false selves that have formed my identity for decades and lean toward uncovering who God created me to be.
This is the topic of the book I released in 2019 — True You: Letting Go of Your False Self to Uncover the Person God Created. You can read more about True You here.
I’ve also written three other books – Katharina and Martin Luther: The Radical Marriage of a Runaway Nun and a Radical Monk; Spiritual Misfit: A Memoir of Uneasy Faith and 50 Women Every Christian Should Know: Learning from Heroines of the Faith (you can learn more about all of my books here).
I also self-published a memoir in August 2022 called Seasons of the Soul: On Becoming Who You Are.
A native New Englander, I now live in Nebraska, where I discovered the Great Plains, grasshoppers the size of Cornish Hens and God. I’m married to Brad, an English professor who reads Moby Dick for fun. We have two teenage boys and a sweet rescue dog named Harvey.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I look forward to getting to know you!
Grace and Peace,
