I’ve been thinking that I should do this for a very long time. But this blogging thing scares me. Terrifies me, really. For several reasons. (We can get into that later.)
Nevertheless, many months ago I bought Blogging for Dummies. My solution to many problems is to buy a book. Some of them I actually read. This one I did not. But having it on my shelf felt like progress. For a while.
Then, in April 2013 I told the Love of My Life, my blogging husband, that I was ready but I didn’t know where to begin. So he promptly set up the account while I busily avoided it, finishing the school year, going on vacation, running the kids hither and yon.
But finally, here I am. Out of excuses. Giving it a go.
So, what else “about” me?
I am married to the most patient, wise, God-fearing man I know. And we have the privilege of teaching together at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. (Peter in Education; me in Communications.)
We have two lovely children/gifts. Daryl (8) adopted domestically, and Amelia (5) adopted from China.
I studied Communications/Technical Writing at Cedarville College, Religious Education at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School (MRE), and Creative Writing at Roosevelt University (MFA).
But most importantly, I seek to serve a God who graciously and relentlessly pursues me with his transforming power. I’ve tried many times to wiggle off the anvil. but He never lets me.
This Odd House began as a book project. So some of the posts are long, I know (especially the early ones). Sorry about that. But they are more book “chapters” than blog posts. Also, they are best understood when read from the beginning. But hopefully, if you’re dropping in at the middle, things will still make some sense.
Finally, whatever brought you here, I hope that this space can in some way point you in the direction of hope and healing.

About Me Update: In October 2015 my first book released with Moody Publishers, coauthored with husband Peter. 20 Things We’d Tell Our Twentysomething Selves.
