Hey, there. I’m glad you stopped by.

Ever find yourself wondering how your life ended up where it is now?

You’re in good company, friend. Pull up a chair. I’d love to hear your story.

I love stories. And I believe God writes the best ones, even — and maybe especially — when our lives don’t look anything like what we expected. That’s what led to writing this blog post, called “I Don’t Wait Anymore,” several years ago. When I finally put my dreams on the altar, He put His pen to a new story in my life, a story that had nothing to do with me … everything to do with Him.

In that pen stroke of His, I came alive.

And I felt compelled to share it.

I’m a journalist in real life. I’ve loved telling other people’s stories for years … not my own. I trembled the day I hit “publish” on “I Don’t Wait Anymore” … and I’m still trembling over the fact that it somehow turned into this book.

God is surprising. And somehow … that fact never stops being a surprise. Or a joy.

Stick around a little while, and it won’t take you long to see that I don’t always handle things perfectly. And life is all kinds of hard sometimes, just like we were promised it would be. But Jesus is my everything, and He is enough … and I wouldn’t trade this story for anything.

There’s infinite peace. Infinite love. He’s worth it.

I’m passionate about knowing God through His Word and encouraging others to discover Him and let Him write the story of their lives too. My church home is The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, Alabama, but I call Mississippi, England and the Middle East home too. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter and Goodreads. I love visiting with colleges, small groups and churches … if that’s something that might fit your group’s need, drop me a line. I’m one girl with a midsize SUV, but I’ll do my best! I’d love to meet you.

Or just drop me a line to say hey.

I’m glad you stopped by.
