Life is complicated and complex and challenging. Writing helps me process it all; and in the end, what is messy becomes beautiful, every time. I am the mother of five (and two sons-in-law); a minister, a musician; a daughter, a sister, a friend. I embrace every day beside the kindest man I’ve ever known. My daughter made a sign for me that says Lady Pastors Rock. So I try to rock every day, with grace. My life is pretty much a wreck, redeemed. The redemption makes it worth shouting about.
