Spiritual writing for the hardest questions in life…

In writing, podcasting, and speaking, I seek to bridge the hope and meaning of faith with the reality of suffering and grief.


When I was seven, my dad turned forty, prompting within me an existential crisis over the brevity of life. Thus began a life-long fascination and horror with time and mortality that stil compells my writing decades later.


My husband and I are one of the 10-15% of couples who suffer from infertility. A growing portion of my writing is devoted to finding meaning and marital satisfaction in the turmoil of infertility grief.


Every week, my husband and I get together and hold space for conversations on doubt. It’s become an entertaining podcast and budding community of folks who believe faith is not about avoiding doubt but finding meaning in it.
