I write about faith, feminism, and living into our resurrected lives in Christ. I’m a former academic and current staff member at my church; I love the middle ages, a good novel, and baking something new. After a decade and a half in the south, I’ve returned to my midwestern roots and I live in the Chicagoland area with my husband, daughters, and assorted pets.
About Into Resurrection
I started blogging here at Into Resurrection to work through what it means to live as a Christian in the tension between the world as it is and the coming kingdom of God. I began this blog after leaving a career in academia and entering a period of transition that I’m still navigating.
But I am still a teacher at heart, and my favorite form of teaching is the seminar where questions and ideas flow freely and I leave as invigorated and inspired as my students. I love the community that is built when people learn together, and I hope this online space can be a place where we can journey together in our faith.
Questions are just as important — sometimes more important — than answers, and I write to explore questions, not find answers. I affirm the historic creeds of Christianity, but I think that God is too big, too other, for our human minds to ever fully grasp. I’m learning to hold firmly to Jesus and loosely to dogma, and to walk in faith even when I’m not quite sure where I’m going.
I’m a One on the Enneagram, so letting go of getting things “right” is quite the journey. But I’m slowly learning that growth requires an ever-deeper rooting into the knowledge that I am God’s beloved child. Join me on my journey to understand what this means for who I am and how I live.
