They call quirky, eccentric people like me “creatives.” I’m pretty sure this is the nice way of dismissing the fact that I had glasses and braces and a closet full of Nancy Drew books when I was 9.
I’m an idea junkie who loves to bring people together around good things. A few of the inspiring projects I’ve been part of : STORY, People of the Second Chance, FaithIt, D6, Christianity21, Church Leaders, Church Tech.
Plus I write…
My Huffington Post blog is the catch-all where I soapbox about faith and culture.
I’ve also written five books and contributed to four others in the faith & spirituality genre, but I’m almost SURE I’ve got better books in me…yet to come.
Curious to read one? Picking Dandelions: A Search for Eden Among Life’s Weeds.
But off the record, I’m …
A reading addict.
A neighborhood enthusiast.
A lifelong tomboy.
A relentless mediator.
An aspiring vigilante.
A true fan of Prison City (Jackson, Michigan).
(Which also makes me a Lake Lover and Mitten Dweller.)
A person of faith.
They call me…
Skinny white girl.
The coach’s wife.
Chief servant to the emperor.
(And his newly appointed Chief of Staff.)
I live to…
Restore people’s sense of community.
My dad is a baptist church planter.
I graduated from a Free Methodist college and a Lutheran grad school.
I call a Wesleyan church plant home.
I learn from, LOVE and listen to (but don’t always agree with) friends from the right, the left and the in-between.
If that makes me difficult to understand, I hope it makes me confounding in the same way Jesus was.
I would be glad to be lumped in with his methodology: for welcoming those the crowd expected him to reject and loving those the crowd wanted him to shame.
More than one person has said…
That my soul is ancient but I have the heart of a ten year old. Snarky or compliment? You decide.
If you write me, I’ll write you back…eventually*. (Rate of response is based on how big the laundry pile is.)
