I grew up in Texas, went to grad school in Scotland, and currently live in a Mennonite intentional community on a farm in the Midwest. I write about farm life, the local church, the quirkiness of community, and more recently, the Christian mystics, who point me toward interior castles, dirty souls, and intense encounters with God on the wild edges of faith. I have signed with Herald Press to publish a book about the Christian mystics and life in community.
