Hi, friend. I'm Erin -- it's nice to meet you here. Suppose there are a few things you should like to know upfront. I believe in honest storytelling fueled by copious amounts of iced coffee and infused with generous helpings of hope. I believe in acting justly, loving mercy, and walking humbly in the freedom and abundance I've been given and in calling out the belovedness of others. I believe in honest answers to the question how are you. Please, no more elevator pitches about how we're busy or just fine thank you very much. I believe in wearing stripes, an in almost every vegetable I've ever tasted. And most importantly, I believe that Jesus is the author and anchor of every good thing. 

I've been writing online for something like twelve years now, so yeah, you could say I grew up around these parts. What started as a dark and solitary space for me to share angsty teenage poetry has grown up to become a safe haven for me to write about evolving faith and learning how to live in tense, gray spaces. I try to stick to the basics, so you won't find any frills or pretense here. I'm messily learning what it means to pick up my cross and follow the Jesus who shepherds my heart. 

I've been married to my best friend Craig for four and a half years now. He's the yin to my yang in all the best ways. He'll try to tell you that he's not cooler than me, but you're smart, so I know you won't be fooled by this. I definitely got the better end of this marriage deal. We laugh a lot, say we're sorry a lot, and there's nothing better than growing beside each other every day. We're currently making our home in South Carolina, where Craig works in production and technology and I am a full time nanny to two beautiful, rambunctious girls who love to keep me on my toes. 

In case you're curious about this sort of thing, I have a degree in counseling and psychology, a minor in biblical and theological studies and an almost minor in literature. I'm an INFJ and a 2 on the Enneagram. 

I'd love nothing more than to get to know you here. Won't you let me know you've stopped by?
