This is my personal blog full of a random collections of thoughts on scripture, culture, and adoption. I love writing, my home full of kids and teens (bio, adopted, & foster) and living in downtown Phoenix.
I am also the founder and Executive Director of Foster Care Initiatives. A non-profit that is focused on the health of biological, foster, and adoptive families so children thrive in the context of a family.
I am passionate about God’s word being proclaimed and God’s work being accomplished especially among the most vulnerable in our society. I mainly speak, write, and blog about adoption, foster care, and the theology that should drive both…but occasionally I throw my two cents in on marriage, parenting, politics, church life, and anything else that sparks a thought.
We live in downtown Phoenix where my husband, Vermon, is the lead pastor and very involved in urban development. We have a very special church community that we are honored to share our life and journey with.
