Writing is an intrinsic part of who I am. It's the way I process life, my faith, and my relationships. It's how I learn to understand others and myself. I am often surprised by the discovery of what I’m truly thinking and feeling when it shows up on the page.

The heart and soul of my writing always comes back to circle around the places where life breaks us and the ways we heal those wounds. This theme comes up again and again in my blog and in other publications, a selection of which are listed below.
