About The Blog

This is a place to share what I am learning about myself, God, parenting, justice and so much more. I hope it can be useful to others who are trying to love God and love people well in this hard, beautiful world.

This blog started as space to discuss faith, race, and justice because I have learned so much in these areas over the last decade. As I started planning, though, I was reminded that writing is how I process life so I am taking a leap of faith and sharing my thoughts on a broader set of topics with you here!

This painting is displayed in our kitchen as a reminder to myself, my hubby, and our kiddos that when the world seems complex and confusing, which it often does, our main pursuit can be boiled down really simply:  Love God.  Love people.  It’s a simple way of embodying scripture in our house.  This is also the first art that I commissioned and it made me feel super fancy.  You, too, can enjoy the brilliance of LaDara McKinnon in your home.  Feel free to learn more about her at  LaDara Fine Art.

Waiting in the Dark

As the world settles in to watch the Winter Olympics in just a few days, I am struggling to find the full enthusiasm I normally boast at this time of year.  I love the Olympics.  The human interest stories.  The competition.  The athletes’ dedication. The love of country.  The camaraderie.  The teary-eyed parents in the…

Who are your best, most challenging teachers?

I have long been on record saying that I think teaching is one of the hardest, most important, and undervalued jobs in our country. I have always admired and respected teachers. My mom was a teacher when I when I was little; I can remember playing school in her classroom like it was yesterday. She…

The Colorful Image of God

I can’t remember living in a more divisive time than this.  Our world, country, and cities need image bearers like you helping to bring God’s kingdom to earth.  I believe there is a beautiful intersection between the words of Jesus and the words of scholars on this subject.  My hope and prayer in writing this is that more White people who love Jesus grow deeper in their understanding of their racial identity and fight harder to help end systems of oppression in our country.   – From The Colorful Image of God
