My life has been shaped by my favorite stories, the ones that have encouraged me and inspired me and challenged me and challenged what I thought I knew. I've learned who I am, who God wants me to be, how better to relate to the outside world, all through the power of the written word. I've felt shared joy, sorrow, triumph and defeat, all through the power of great stories.

I have a soldier husband, a nervous dog, an active toddler, and a million stories to tell. I pray about everything from what book to read next to major life-altering decisions, though sometimes that's one in the same.

I'll share some stories here on my blog and save the rest for the dozens of books I hope to write. I want to make the world a better place with the stories I tell. Because I don't believe the world will be changed by one sweeping movement. Instead, I believe it'll be changed one heart, one story at a time.
