Oddly combined outfits, arranged flowers in mason jars on the counter, and Saturday mornings at the market square where mandolins play keep a spark going inside me. I like being regular and pronounce it “regler.” If I can get to the keyboard quickly enough, I’ll write out of the holy, terrible, and fantastic regular. I love mustard on my sausage biscuits. I like a little house and a big yard. I whirl from child to sink to garden to spill, but I love to steep in different cultures and countries, too. I love to travel.

Most of all, I love to write. I never questioned what I would grow up to be. learn more about me »

I wrote a whole entire book (a memoir) called Wild in the Hollow so everybody and their Grandmas can read about how messed up I have been. Redemption is a powerful thing for those us who are messed up.

Here online, I write about mothering boys and keeping faith from the perspective of a Christian woman who’s had an abortion and an affair. I love to tell a story, to speak and write about the church and the power of weakness and forgiveness

I have this blog, the RunaMuck, because I want to encourage you in your creative endeavor and spiritual giftings, in your pursuit of the Kingdom of God, and in your weakness.

The Monthly Story Letter

This letter is for friends, family, and fellow-writers and artists who like the quieter ways to engage online. I’ll be one part goofy to two parts poetry. Let’s share our stories together.
