I believe I’m a writer at heart. I express myself best– clearest and most open and thoughtful– through writing and that’s always been true. I was a note-writer in elementary and middle school.  I excelled academically, due in large part to my ability to write clear, well thought-out papers and essays. I think in stories, in scripts. So I’m giving blogging a try– again. (My high school blog, long gone now, is the reason I know most of the html coding I do. I’m hoping this blog will be a little more thoughtful, and a little less teenage-girl-tries-to-deal-with-life. But honestly, it’ll probably just end up being woman-tries-to-deal-with-life.)

Beyond this, I work for a non-profit doing website updates, social media, and marketing. I frequently edit videos for my family. I am a bit crafty and creative. I’m introspective. I love traveling, but hate flying.

I come from a family of several brothers and sisters, and now sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, in addition to a growing number of nieces and nephews. My parents are givers and taught me to volunteer and support the people around me.

My favorite person on earth is my husband, Chad. We have the cutest, if not the most unstable, high maintenance cat I’ve ever known. Her name is Olive Oil. We have a house in New Jersey.

I am a follower of Jesus and my journey of faith is growing deeper and deeper all the time. And that gives me energy and hope and wonder. And that’s what I want to write about.

One thought on “About

  1. My name is Rachel Asproth; I am the editor of Arise, an e-journal published by Christians for Biblical Equality. The purpose of the publication is to highlight issues concerning women’s empowerment in the church and the world as a whole. We deal with a lot of material on mutual submission, dual-headship, and women in leadership. I stumbled upon your #faithfeminisms blog post and after a read, was incredible impressed. Your writing is powerful and prophetic. Would you be interested in writing a short piece for Arise (blog length) on women in leadership? Please let me know if you’re at all interested; I’d be honored to feature your voice in Arise and I know our readers would love to read your work. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
