Happy to Meet You!
I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m Becky. I’m a mom, a wife, and a writer (Faith Words recently published my first book, a grief/growing-up memoir titled BROKEN for GOOD).
I’m also a recreational baker (I make 9-hour fondant cakes for fun), defender of good coffee, INFJ, and former healthcare PR pro.
Writers are book-lovers, by design, and I’ve got a soft spot for big playful thinkers like C.S. Lewis, Neil Postman, and G.K. Chesterton. I also adore (and quite possibly over-promote) the oeuvre of the late, great Oswald Chambers. Utmost is gutsy, artful, WISE--and easily the best book on practical faith I’ve ever read. I keep pressing it into people’s palms.
I Tend to write about…
PURSUING PASSION, because I’m an incurable dreamer. Cinderella stories and “what-if” questions are my kind of catnip. I blog a good bit about fear, failure, dreams, possibility, and the art of appropriately ignoring what others think.
HOW MOMMYING KEEPS GROWING ME UP, because I’ve just survived toddler-rearing mode (that glorious hamster-wheel of motherhood). My 4-year-old Wonderboy keeps me moving.
FERVENT FAITH, living HOT, and staying HUNGRY, because I’m a believer in the finished (really, the It is finished) work of Jesus Christ, and his desire to wring beauty from stubborn souls (see: Jacob, Jonah, me). I believe our minds were built to wrestle the great mysteries of faith, and grace, and pain, and grief, and The Whole Entire Point.
If you're a writer yourself, pop over here.
