I’m a Christian, wife, mom, church planter, professor, and an Arkansas native living in the Valley of the Sun. Reading (mainly non-fiction and theology), playing guitar, traveling, photography, and writing bring me great joy. If you are into topics like pacifism, gender equality, 12-step recovery, social justice, and traveling, then we will get along just fine. If not, I’ll do my best to get along with you, anyway. 😉 I’m a fan of the Oxford comma and words in a series. I have a Master’s degree in English with a concentration in modern and postmodern American literature, so if you like Steinbeck and Hemingway, let’s just say we might be best friends. If you also like coffee, please buy a ticket to Phoenix so we can hang out.
