10940508_10155118343940551_8860630978310085557_nIn a world that requires quick self-descriptions, I am a wife, mother of two, and ESL teacher-turned-coach. I taught for 11 years (mostly K-12 ESL) and now I work with ESL teachers. I have a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Education and an MFA in Creative Writing. I am a third culture kid who partially grew up in Bangkok, Thailand. I am a writer, poet, book lover, and dreamer. I am a Christian. Sort of. I could qualify that with words like evangelical or Eastern Orthodox, but mostly, I am just a faith-wrestler.

But in another world, I am simply metamorphing. I am not sure if I am still in the egg, or if I’m in the midst of the chrysalis, or if I am the butterfly just hatched, blood still dripping and wings still flexing. I know, though, that I am somewhere in between. Sometimes that means lost, and sometimes that just means waiting, but I am always looking toward growth.

I write about things that may or may not appeal to you, but I write them anyway.

I tell stories about failure and hope, struggle and silence. I often write about faith, but I seem to be a bit worn out on that now. I also write about writing, reading, family, cross-cultural experiences, and seeking meaning in the midst of this life.

I would love to hear from you! I do accept guest posts. Feel free to contact me.
