Hi. I’m Catherine—reader, writer, occasional speaker, mom of three, pastor’s wife, Christ follower. I live with my family in an urban area near Denver, Colorado, but I long to live in a mountainy forest somewhere, surrounded by trees outside, books inside and no telephones. I live always in the tension between love thy neighbor and my innate desire to not have any neighbors. Hopefully for supper tonight I can rustle up some yeasty bread, steaming pasta, a green salad and some kind of cobbler with ice cream, but most likely I will forget to prepare anything until I am too hungry to wait and we will eat something microwaved. Such is life in an accidentally homeschooling house whose mom is usually sucked into a book. My husband Michael is my best friend. Together we planted Calvary Wellspring Church back in 2005, and now we’re helping to start the William Tennent School of Theology.
I’ve also been honored to write articles for a few different websites, including godcenteredlife.org (The Power of Like, Colorblind, The Greatest Story Ever Told, Psalm 46 in a World Gone Mad, Election Year Exiles), The Gospel Coalition (The Surprising Upside to Sadness, Sometimes God Says Go, and Sometimes Stay, How to Pray in a Hurricane), and crosswalk.com (How to Spot Strategic Moments in Your Kids’ Lives, Ten Old-Fashioned Virtues that Deserve a Comeback).
Welcome to this small corner of the internet. Hope you’ll come back soon!
