Just Another Hobbit, Disturbed by Jesus, Living the Adventure

You and I share a story because we’re part of His story. The story of everyone who knows there is a greater adventure out there, and keeping their heads buried in the Shire is no longer an option.

Of course we love comfort, of course we want to keep to ourselves and enjoy the safety of home but we live in times that call for believers to be brave, to take action, and to set comfort aside out of love for Jesus and for those Jesus loves.

What about you?

If you’re here, you understand what I’m saying. You’re seeking the courage, companionship, and skills to take hold of the path God has set before you. Let’s find it together.

Why I write: I want to inspire the wounded believer to join the ancient adventure, to encourage the faithful not to lose heart, and to engage the skeptic in a dialog about the perfect God who loves an imperfect church.

I write essays about faith designed to unsettle the hobbit in all of us and inspire us to forget second breakfast long enough to join the adventure.

Writing is the best way to say everything I have to say without being interrupted.

I’m a woman living in a small town, in the smallest state, with one husband, two grown children with their own families, and a day job.

I follow Jesus imperfectly, but with my whole heart.

I was thirty before I had the nerve to call out for pizza, so, as you can see, hanging out with Jesus has not been without effect.
