This is what I believe: We all began our first chapter with God and we all will end our last chapter with Him. When I open my eyes in the morning, my first thought is of Him and when I close my eyes at night my last thought is of Him. Why not, in all that space in between see Him first in everything?
I’ve written since I could hold a pen and my love affair with words began through the reading of the Hebraic book of poetry: the Psalms. My interests are the intersections of thoughtful daily faith, women’s issues, global missions, painting, reading, holistic health, gardening, nature, hiking, traveling, preaching/teaching, prayer, meditation and biblical study. These are the things you’ll find I am prone to ponder and write about. I invite you to also visit my other (very new) blog “Peaceful Women’s Health”.
My first book (I’m trusting more have been germinating within), Running into Water: Women Immersed in the Pursuit of God (originally with Biblica, acquired by IVP and released in 2009) covers the spiritual formation of women and their children with a personal, yet global emphasis. The premise is that our relationship with God and pursuit of him undergirds everything we are and do. It’s mostly for mothers who hunger to go deeper and broader in their intentional work of mothering and growth as an individual woman. I’ve also contributed to Zondervan’s Hope in the Mourning Bible: Finding Strength Through God’s Eternal Perspective.
