About Me


I was born and raised a missionary kid on the island of Luzon in the Philippines for the first fifteen years of my life.  As a kid, you could always hear talk of things like “Jesus,” “heaven,” “hell,” “grace” and “sin” floating around our house.  One day I asked my parents how I could be sure that I wouldn’t go to hell when I died.  I can still remember sitting on my father’s lap, holding his hand in the yellow lamplight and listening to him tell me the story of the gospel.  With the faith of a child, I surrendered my whole life to Jesus in exchange for His forgiveness and salvation.

Years later my faith would be sorely tested as I transitioned off the mission field and back to the United States.  At the time I would’ve gladly re-written the story of my life, but looking back I am so thankful for God’s sovereignty.  Coming to the US not only shaped who I am, it allowed me to meet my husband, Clint, and to have four beautiful daughters with him.

In 2012 I started blogging about motherhood, and eventually my blog turned into a book.  In 2017 I published a second book called Hiding in the Hallway, written specifically for missionary kids. In 2018 I co-authored a book about living and dying with cerebral palsy.

For a while I wrote for the True Woman blog, over at Revive Our Hearts, and currently I am the Staff Writer at Grace Church.
