There is nothing simple about me.  I am is a complex person living out my complex humanity with deep compassion, wonder in the small things, fierce hope, unwavering strength, and radical love.  I’m a politically progressive wife, mother to three boys, full time grad student, minister in formation, and chronic patient. I face each challenge with optimism and a wicked sense of humor. Don’t let my smile confuse you though, I cuss. A lot. And I cry, but mostly, I laugh.  I’m addicted to stamps in my passport, macarons, and the comma (you’ll see).
