On my blog at, I’m looking for signals of grace — gestures toward God at work — as I explore the links between culture, communication, and faith.

My other blog,, serves as a companion to my book, I’m Outnumbered: One Mom’s Lessons in the Lively Art of Raising Boys (Kregel) .

Come on over and get acquainted!

Teacher / Professor / Learner

Teaching and learning go hand in hand for me; I love both.

Communication, English, and Rhetoric are my specialties.

I’m blessed to have taught both high school and college and, armed with a Ph.D., I plan to continue teaching and learning.  

Join me!


I’ve authored two books, I’m Outnumbered: One Mom’s Lessons in the Lively Art of Raising Boys (Kregel), and Pearl, a novel.

My articles have been published in Lifeway magazines, and I’ve written numerous web articles for various sites.

Join me as I explore signals of grace in everyday life and culture — gestures toward God at work.

I hope this will be a place where gravitas complements the genuine, a place where we can see new meaning in the mundane as we share the dust of daily life.

Thanks for coming by, and I hope you’ll join the conversation. It’s my hope that we can “speak to one another on the basis of what we both need” (Bonhoeffer, Life Together).

"Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect...(1 Peter 3:15)."
