A little about me...

I’m a follower of Jesus and I walk a crooked road. I’m not alone in that, but I come from a people who cling to the highway. When I lost my daughter, when my marriage fell apart, the ‘highway faith’ stopped working for me. My life careened onto some twisty back roads. I felt more alone than I needed to over the years, thinking I had disqualified myself from finding God.

Along those back roads I’ve gotten glimpses of Him, in the ‘real’, in the messy, and in the places without answers. Is it still hard? Yes. Do I still struggle? Yes. That is part of life. What I’m learning is that God is bigger than the boxes we put Him in, and He’s not afraid of our pain.

If you’re afraid you can’t belong to Him, because you don’t fit into a ‘highway faith’. I’m here to offer hope, without erasing the reality of your pain.
If life has torn out your footings through grief, through loss, through struggle, know that you’re not alone.
